Qdoes this hose come complete with threaded fitting to connect to body and fitting to attach to metal tubes(as shown in your picture) or hose only2 Answers

You have to buy the threaded connector for it, I had the problem with my red threaded connector being stuck to the broken hose so I purchased one along with this hose. you get the bit that fixes on to the metal tubing, just the threaded connector you need.
My Henry has a very low suction, the metal pipes are clear but can't get any suction from the plastic tube. I've tried blowing down it but no use, and because of the bend in the tube I can't insert anything down it to clear it. I've also bought some new dust bags so that's not the problem. Why don't the Henrys have a blow out feature as some vacuums have?

Have a read through our advice centre to see if your problem is covered in there. Alternatively give Numatic a call to ask their advice on what would increase the suction power of your appliance.
Qdo I have to buy new hose if the problem is the plastic end keeps falling off steel pipe?1 Answer
I think the plastic end may have become distorted although I cannot see any damage. It doesn't stay on the steel pipe when I am hoovering but can I just buy a new end or do I have to buy a whole new hose? Also, why is the longer than standard hose cheaper??

I'm afraid that the end of the hose does not come as a separate part, only with the rest of the hose. This hose is cheaper than other shorter hoses as this one - http://www.espares.co.uk/part/vacuum-cleaners/numatic-henry/p/1086/531/0/0/479232/hose-assembly.html
This is because the above link is for an RSV hose, which is favoured by professionals for it's sturdier build at the end you screw on to the vacuum. Hope this helps!
