Update: 11 months later: After frequent "hobby" level use all year, I'm still very pleased with this product. It shows no sign of collapse or holes from being dragged around my garage shop.
Update: March 2007 - 3 years later: Still going strong!
Update: July 2008 - 4 years and counting - still working great after being dragged around for countless hours.
Update: January 2014 - 10 years later and I'm still dragging this from tool to tool. I have filled the 35 gallon garbage can separator countless times. I see other reviews noting that the hose wears out - My use is strictly sawdust from oak, poplar and pine. I hook it to a band saw, a planer, a table saw, a jointer, and a chop saw. I don't run scrap wood through it, and I don't run any metallic bits, gravel, screws, etc. Only sawdust. (OK, maybe one or two corners of a board here and there, but nothing significant.) One of the few things I would give six stars if they were available.
The 50' was only $50 bucks so I thought I may keep it as a back up that could be made into whatever size I needed and that it may be somewhat more durable when warmed up.
Several days later I hooked it to my 110v planer then to the dust collector. Within 30 minutes holes were beginning to appear in the creases of the hose. This product might make a great dryer hose with lint passing through but don't attempt to use it for woodworking it is much to delicate for its intended use.
Granted, the 50 foot hose is not as thick, but it is thick enough and sturdy enough for all my applications. It is much easier to work with, more flexible. For the price, this hose is the way to go. Even in cutting the hose, I had to poke a hole thru the hose with a pointed pair of scissors. The semi-blunted end of the wire cutters would not poke a hole in the hose!!
The ten foot hose has to be cut in the exact length needed, it will not collapse if cut too long. If cut too short...... The 50 foot hose will collapse, and if you have a machine on coasters, then when properly planned, will expand when the machine is used. The 50 foot hose arrives in a box that is only about 4 feet long, the ten foot hose arrived in a box much larger and is not compacted (it can't be).
This hose gives more options, the only negative thing in comparsion to the 10 foot hose is, it is not as rigid, or stiff. Which can be a positive thing.
My application was primarily to connect my floor sweep and move it about the shop during cleanup. Unfortunately when the hose is connected to a dust collector (mine is a 2hp model) the hose will constrict (like an accordion) and collapses back to about four feet. Next, I tried to use it with some of my connections, but the same problem prevented the hose from being practical.
Lastly - I decided to use the hose as an exhaust for moving air through the finishing area. Works fine for this application. I would highly recommend using the Jet hose or solid tubing for a DC connection. This was not a wise investment however it was also not too costly.
