Answer: 
No hose, this is just the power unit. Also, if starting from scratch, I recommend 2" PVC rather than the flimsy 'central vac' piping .

Answer: 
Yes- you may have to modify connections at the unit, but it's pretty straight forward; central vacuum, low volt on/ off connections, done!

Greetings Romarocket,
My name is Tom, also known as HD116 at Home Depot's How to Community. I am here assisting with a few product questions and saw yours.
The VX550 from Nutone you have described is for the power unit itself, and does not include any accessories. There are hoses available from about 30 to 42 feet in length. One of 30' can be found by clicking this link - Read More

Deluxe 550-Watt Central Vacuum Power Unit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from What good is it if there are no replacement parts it's a good unit, worth every penny UNTIL you find out that the only thing that wears out on the unit, the motor brushes, are no available to purchase and you have to spend a little over 50% of the price of the whole unit to replace the motor instead of 2 brushes that would cost a few dollars. Wish I had know this when i got the unit :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far Very easy to install. Suction is outstanding. Only been using it for 2 weeks but no issues and does a great job.
Date published: 2012-06-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. We are extremely happy with this product. This has been the best home improvement that we made to our house. We especially like the sweep inlet, which we installed in the kitchen. We highly recommend this system. Just a note: be aware that you will need a 20 amp circuit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This system is worth every penny. I installed this unit myself in my house. It was not that hard for a "do it yourselfer". I can do basic wiring and plumbing so this was fairly easy to do. Just takes some planning before you start. Unit is VERY powerful and will suck up just about anything that will fit into pipe. I even sucked a key off my laptop keyboard by mistake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable / Easy to install unit The unit was easy to install and have been very dependable. My only recommendation for improvement is a way to clear the built in filter. I have to shake it manually and I get dust all over my hand. ie. could there be a lever up in the air chamber that allows you to release the filter from above?
Date published: 2014-03-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product was easy to install. Didn't realize how weak the old unit it replaced was until we used the new one. Unit has great look. Easily adapted to the existing system. Easy to install, one bracket, entrance and exit tubes, two wires to connect and plug in wall socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY TO INSTALL,JUST ADD COMMON SENSE WORKS GREAT , I NOW HAVE 2. ONE FOR THE HOME AND ONE FOR THE SHOP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever Dear Nutone, When i decided to put a central vacuum in my home I went with the VX550C because of is brand name and for the power it generates. My wife loves your product , this is the first time we have been able to really clean our living room area rug ( 6X10ft ). I swept it with our house vac to show my wife the difference and then with the power head on the central vacuum. I showed her the particles and debris your system picked up and she was impressed to say the least. I strongly recommend buying the stronger unit for suction,bag less debris disposal,and reliability. I have never been sorry for getting this. I have been sorry for buying portable vacuums in the past. It is such a pleasure not hearing a hand held vacuum interrupt my Tv viewing. Your unit is down the cellar and the only thing I hear is the beater head.
