In addition to demonstrating how the world's greatest patented hose roller rolls everything from 3/4" Peanut Line, multiple lines, and Agnus hose up to 5" LDH, you can take the next few moments to learn how this patented device will allow you to accomplish more in a few minutes at the end of an incident when fatigue is truly setting in than you ever imagined. Prepare any "attack" or "hotel" or "high rise" hose extension bundle for immediate/confined space deployment that any other hose load can NEVER compete!
Yes, with the assistance of standard 2" trailer hitch receiver on the back of a pick-up truck I rolled, stacked, inventoried, and moved [over 100' of travel distance from an exterior drying rack surrounded by exposed dirt] 3250' of 3", 2.5", 1.75" Double Jacket, and 1.5" and 1" Wildland fire hose back to it's storage racks/area... SOLO... but in far less time (1 HOUR!) than a team of even eight (4) of us could have performed in four (4) hours [16 man-hours] on our hands and knees as we swept the debris off the bottom side of every inch of over a half mile of hose.
The funny part about this story was I told no one within my volunteer department I had performed this duty... by myself... during the first few drops of the fall/winter season's first heavy rain storm on a weekday afternoon.
When all of us (volunteers) reported a week later to our next training drill, there was a feeling of great frustration as everyone realized [and assumed] we had all dropped the ball as none of us had taken initiative and the crucial time and effort to get a few of us together to remove the hose before the rain had hit... and therefore had became much too late to even hope for a few consecutive warm days to reverse the water exposure.
However, upon viewing the 'empty' hose drying rack, the thought then transitioned the entire complement had been stolen... but then upon reporting to the apparatus room to inventory what hose may have remained, everyone was absolutely amazed to see every inch accounted for... just as "I" had left it... but my fellow volunteers had no idea and could only guess it must have been perhaps an inmate crew who were assigned this task... like a bunch of Santa's elves... to accomplish this incredibly grueling yet very necessary detail for us.
You know when you know you have one over the rest of them!?! ...and it still leaves them wondering?
Well, Hello! Bottom line they were all very appreciative they were relieved of this duty yet very skeptical when I stated I had accomplished this.... ALONE! After you view the remaining information at www.hoseroller.net you will also know! Yes, this hose roller is like none other because of it's patented removable Crank Handle and optional Extension Arm attachments and Rope Rescue pulley system designed to accomplish more than we ever dreamed in a configuration that will fit into a standard "baseball bat bag" and therefore, store nearly anywhere on you rig to be used both on or off the fire ground.
Please note in every demonstration the roller is attached to either one (1) or two (2) small 2" X 3" X ¾" Quick-Disconnect Mounting Bracket(s) [designed for strength and durability AND yet small enough to be affixed to an apparatus bumper or standard 4" X 4" wooden post in the most remote locations on the globe] as the hose is rolled, coiled, and prepared (in a foot print area small enough to protect your crew from the harsh elements of weather) ...and then fully charged from within limited or confined space and then deployed around right angle turns on the most difficult paths to traverse.
My hope is you find this informative at the very least and perhaps as an inspiration to consider the acquisition of such an incredible 'partner' in the Fire Service that will allow you to not only roll hose of nearly any size from 3/4" Peanut Line to up to 5" LDH, but deploy it in a much SAFER and more EFFICIENT manner, affect SAFE Rope Rescue Practices, and restore your apparatus to it's state of readiness with the least amount of time and effort like never before!
