Can't go wrong with any Craftsman rubber hose, unless you buy too short. Heavy, but you won't have any worries that it isn't going to work when you need it.
They recently changed this hose its round now not a hexagon made thinner and feels like its not all rubber (maybe some kind of plastic). The new one feels lighter ie cheaper the brass ends are not as heavy duty anymore. One of the few things I went to sears for is now gone their hoses are like everyone else
Purchased the item at an actual sears store, that has since closed down. No cannot find a replacement due to it is now leaking. Called customer support and the nearest store over 30 miles. The store said the cannot order one and customer support offered to mail me one but I would have to pay over $15 in shipping. So much for the lifetime warranty. It is interesting that if I order it myself and pay for it the shipping is only $7. You should shop around before paying this much for a lifetime warranty hose, because you may not be able to get a replacement if it fails. Very disappointed with Sears. They used to be such a great place and had great customer service and took care of the customer. Seems like that has changed.
Would highly, highly recommend. Bought mine a couple years ago and it has gotten only better with use. It is best hose I have ever owned. It gets softer with use, instead of stiffer. Never kinks or leaks.
After spending 1 and a half hours on my first phone call I thought i had the issue resolved but i was wrong. So i was trying to exchange the hose that split and when i got off the phone was charged for it. Got that resolved and when i received the new hose it was a cheaper one, i paid for a premium hose and got a less expensive one sent to me. I decided just to kept it with all the hassle i had and the one was defective, so i sent it back for a full refund.
Good hose, flexible and easy to handle unlike vinyl. Very happy with this purchase
