    Anyone have any suggs?

    I only vacuum my stove out once every 10-14 days. If i let it coll completely, I can drag in the shop vac with a 2inch hose and clean it quick.

    I hate the small dia. hose on the ash vac.

    check with shopvac for an increaser from 1 1/4 to 2 1/2. also note there will still be a restriction where the hose connects to the vac so it might not pick up any faster than the smaller hose.

    If all else fails, try McMaster Carr - the ultimate online hardware store....
