      Hit the gym and get some arms so you can hump hose the way it's been done by firefighters for decades, by hand. You don't need a tool to advance and handle hose, aka hump hose. If you can't hump hose by hand, well, maybe you should be on the EMS crew.

      Use the money you'd spend on the tool and get a gym membership.

            Hey, dipsh|t, you've posted two videos about this overpriced piece of scrap metal:

            "The Bowring Tool 2-1/2" hose advancement"
            &
            "The Bowring Tool"

            ...and you can't figure out what the tool is called to JFGI?!? Did your parents have any kids who lived?

              Haha, yeah yeah yeah. Maybe dragging a hose wagon is just what you need brother, get those arms bigger, . Seriously, do some weight training and it does make the job easier without having to rely on tools to do it. Not trying to be an ***, just giving some advice.

              BTW, just ignore ole deputydipschit, he's, well, not sure what his deal is. He just tends to be a dick.

                Copping an attitude is never a good alternative. Some folks like to bust your balls.

                Perhaps something like this is what you have in mind:

                We have a couple around the station that are simply a loop of rope with a similar handle, and one old timer is made of chain instead of rope.

                They're a handy solution for holding a line in place if you have an anchoring point, especially if you're going to be in one place with it for a while (like a "surround and drown").

                The outfit I borrowed the image from sells it for $40. This is not an endorsement of that outfit.
                Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                  I appreciate the advice, but weight training is not an issue. Just checking out different tools out there. Seeing if they are any good or worth it?

                    The good ole ladder hose strap. If you use it on a ladder better make dang sure your ladder footer is doing his job, haha. Mine wasn't one time, FNG, and the ladder started to do the chicken wobble with me. Needless to say, the next shift we made sure he did plenty of ladder drills with ladder hose straps to make sure the lesson from the previous shift stayed with him.

                      First, It doesn't look like a personal tool to me, It's kind of big for the pocket. Second, the price of a hose strap or a piece of webbing, as stated, is a fraction of the cost. Third, I don't know how much you will be using this, it's one of those cool gadets but not really necessary.

                        Agreed, like I said earlier, some time on the gym and experience pulling/pushing hose, and the job isn't all that hard. Or, a person could just become a truckie and have more fun.

                          Deputy bumf*ck is the odd man out on this site. The sniveling computer nerd. The pathetic whiner without a single friend to claim him. The kid always picked last to play ball in school. But he's here to take all that pain back, one post at a time.

                          He's got his little pirate avatar and quotes, how cute. I think a prior poster thought he was a child. He's got some issues. His little pirate obsession displays that.

                            This whole thread has been one big spam. As for this tool... what a waste of money.

                            Just proving that yet again that some firefighters appear to have money burning a hole in their pocket.

                              LetsRollEm,

                              Let me see if I have this right...

                              You post here asking about a hose handling tool that no one has ever heard of.

                              Then you post 2 Youtube videos about the same hose handling tool.

                              Then you claim you couldn't do a Google search because you didn't know the name of the gadget? Um, sorry not buying it. How did you find the Youtube videos if you didn't know what you were looking for? Also, the guy demo-ing it said the name of it like 20 times.

                              My guess is you are either the inventor of this thing, or someone trying to market it for him. In either case go away spammer.
                              Crazy, but that's how it goes
                              Millions of people living as foes
                              Maybe it's not too late
                              To learn how to love, and forget how to hate
