Used it’s a deal, depending on your plans. What was the reason for selling them, did they change to 4”,5” or 6” system. or did they stop woodworking. I do like the idea of clear tubing. With several blast gates, junctions, and longer hoses the more air volume you need. The maximum I run my 2 1/2” hoses is 20’, but I run the hoses direct with no blast gates. If you split the hoses a couple different directions just down one wall with Y,T, or blast gates, you might be ok.. I have no problems with shavings using 2 1/2” hose with my planer or jointer with my HF system once I removed both the grid screens it came with. Plus what are you hooking this up to. The volume on my Craftsman 20 gallon would able to handle the 40’, but no Y, T or blast gates.
