I think my framing gun gets a little inconsistent on the depth when I use it with a 1/4" hose.

I've got 3 - 100' flexzilla's. For 30 some bucks I think I have certainly gotten my money's worth out of them. I haven't had a lick of trouble.

I haven't had any problems with flexzilla.

I bought fourteen 50' last year and dragged them around a roofing project for eight months. No blow outs or bubbles.

Re: Legacy Flexzilla Air Hoses Are JUNK!!!


Legacy went above and beyond to get in touch with me today. I spoke to very nice people who were concerned with my issue.

Top notch customer service legacy has...

There going to send me a new replacement hose ASAP and they also sent me a pre-paid ups return label for the old hose so the engineering department can inspect the problems because they said its very un-common and never heard of bursting at such a low psi.

Ill let you guys know how everything pans out...

Ill be waiting for the new hose in the meantime.

I'm glad to hear they are doing the right thing. Some companies really do a great job, and earn future business based on customer service alone. Unfortunately, this does not apply to all our vendors, but I have to say that I have been pretty surprised by some that I didn't expect much from.

I have a 50 ft flexzilla, had it for a year with some heavy framing use, no problems yet. It is the nicest hose I have ever used, second place is an old rigid hose that is pretty nice. I hate flexeels.

Re: Legacy Flexzilla Air Hoses Are JUNK!!!


I bought one on sale from Menards that I've yet to use. It seems like a quality hose, and the ones I've used, have never seen a problem with them. Ones beat all to hell.

Well as everyone stated here there not a bad hose. The hose i had, there was something wrong with it for sure. I guess i got a lemon with my bad luck. Legacy took care of the issue and sent me out a new hose.
