i have to make sure i can get it in there before i build the bin. Richard , i'll have somebody take a pic of the area tomorrow and post it , to see what you think. good idea Greg , i'm looking at maybe 9' , holding the hose and reaching the floor. i'll try 10' to make sure.
i use a little shop vac in the house. cleaning the filter is easy. i go out on the ramp and smack it on the railing. if i have to clean it every 5 or 6 times , i can live with that.
thank you for the ideas guys , ken
