This is the most basic electric hose you can get for your central vacuum. It comes with a 6 foot long electrical cord on the wall end, and an outlet for your powerhead cord on the handle end. It does not have a switch, so you are not able to turn on your vacuum or powerhead from the handle. This hose also does not have a handle. The hose itself is crush proof, and made by Plastiflex to withstand many years of use.
