      Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

      "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.

              Now don't get your panties in a wad.

              We use typical rubber type hose for 5" LDH. We use Angus high combat for 1 3/4" and 2 1/2" hose. I know it is extra, but the warranty that Angus carries on it makes it worth it for us.

                Thanks solo we currently use 2" but we got a bunch of sissy's that want 1.75 hose so the chief is making us downgrade. I love using the 2" attack with a select gallonage tft and cafs for fire attack it makes a super quick knockdown

                  This exactly what we don't do. As stated, the warranty offered by Angus for the better hose makes it worth it for us.

                  Also, we use Elkhart Chief nozzles - 200 gpm @ 75 psi.

                        A gym membership for the girlymen would be cheaper than replacing all of your hose!

                          My volly FD uses Key nitrile rubber 2 inch hose with 1 1/2 inch couplings in 100 foot lengths. We use the Elkhart B-275GAT psitol grip nozzle with a 1 1/4 inch slug tip and on that we put a Elkhart Chief combination nozzle that flows 200 gpm at 75 psi.

                          We under pump the nozzle to flow 160 gpm at about 55 psi at the tip to start, we can go to 200 on the combo, and 300 gpm with the slug tip at just over 40 psi at the tip.

                          We have no other size of hose for handline use and this system has worked wel for us. We like the rubber hose since we can hose it off reload it and everyone can go back to their normal lives quicker.

                          I gotta agree with Gonzo, send your guys to the gym if they can't move the 2 inch. We routinely move it with 2 guys on the line.

                            You are in the wrong profession, sally.
