Actual Weight of Hoses
All the hoses are listed as "lightweight", but could you provide an approximate weight, eg: for a 30 foot hose? I notice mention of possible flexing or kinks, so they are probably much lighter than the cumbersome, wire-reinforced hose that came with my vacuum, but I'd appreciate any details.

Great question Rob. The Basic and Low Voltage 30ft hoses are 7 lbs and the Electric is 8-1/2 lbs. Of course, when you are using the vacuum the majority of that weight is sitting on the floor. You are not carrying it around. If you are used to the wire reinforced hoses it will take a bit of time to get used to the pliable ones. But it is totally worth it.
