I have been asked if I could vacuum out sawdust and chips from a local wood products manufacturer's dryer. I need to know if the vac wand on a 210 would produce sufficient vacuum if I ran a 2.5" hose out 200 feet.

I beleave 2 1/2" hose would be to small. I would go for a 4" hose and conect it to solid PVC pipe for the long run then back to flex pipe at the ends. That way you would get a smooth bore pipe so nothing would get hung up on it. If the sawdust was dry I see no reason it would not work.
