I have the Supermax 19-38—but the dust port is essentially in the same spot and also 4”. I route the hose through a loop of rope hanging from the ceiling. The rope supports the hose and gets it up and out of the way when you are using the sander. Let me know if you need a picture.

WOW! I hesitated about responding for days but it is time to come clean. I am also firmly in the “overhead lasso” camp, except mine is a bungee cord. I do not have enough room for a dedicated position in the shop for my drum sander, so it rides on casters. I roll it into position and support the hose with the bungee cord. The exit end of the hose has an adapter that allows me to hook it up to the dust collection port that serves my jointer. Total length of 4” hose from sander to dust collector is about 6”.

Drum sanders throw off a ton of very fine dust, but I have never had any issues capturing all of it with my temporary hookup.
