I’m having difficulty getting the hose over the fittings. Any better way than brute force? soap, wax or hot water? Is there any easy way to shift hose from one tool to another? I don’t want to permantently secure to one amchine.

i had the same problem recently getting someo flex of the 6 X (2) 4” adapter of my delta 50-850. i used a hair dryer to heat the flex adn it slipped onto the adapter quite easily. i used to use pots of hot water. the hair dryer is MUCH better. when i want to remove the flex from the adapter, i just heat it with the hair dryer and it slips off easily.

-- there's a solution to every just have to be willing to find it.
