boom arm questions?
« on: May 04, 2022, 07:26 AM »
Hello all.

I recently got CT48 and boom arm.  I currently have 3.5m D36 hose and its a bit short.  Looking for ideas on how to extend it.  Don't want to shell out over $200 on 5m D36 hose.  I have few older d27 hoses but don't want to reduce the size.   Does D50 hose fit into the boom arm clips?  Any other ideas?  Would getting the bosch hose and cutting it to about 2m work and using the coupler to attach it between the d50 hose and D36 work?

Also I'm missing the power extension cord that comes with the boom arm, anyone have a picture of what it looks like?  what Part number is it?

Are the stabilizer feet needed?  my boom arm didn't come with them.

Thank you

Yep mine came with 50mm extension hose as well but it seems that with my 3.5m hose attached it’s a bit shorter then I want it to be so trying to extend it a bit. Thank you for the part list

So just use the plug-it cord from the tool?

Is your hose 3.5m or 5m? Yep it’s a system that I’m learning just looked up part 2 from your picture it’s $110 lol

That’s a clever idea!  [smile]
