Space comes at a premium on the DFES’s Light Tanker bush fire response vehicles. These vehicles need to fit water tanks and lots of equipment. Any space saved on the hose reel is a significant help to the bodybuilders constructing the vehicles and the firefighters using them.
With this in mind, we were tasked with developing a lighter and more compact version of our electric hose reels — without compromising on the strength, durability, or performance that makes them so effective.
Our standard electric hose reels feature a high-performance electric motor mounted outside the reel. To reduce the footprint of the reel, we mounted this motor on the inside and designed a 90-degree swivel that takes up less space and keeps the inlet hose close to the reel. And with some other minor modifications across the reel, we also reduced weight without compromising strength.
This electric hose reel model is now in use across DFES fire appliances. The reel fits into tighter places and allows for more equipment and larger water tanks to be fitted to the vehicles. And most importantly, this updated design has zero compromises on the performance or durability of the reel.
Water truck bodybuilders have also adopted this new electric reel for mining, civil, and agricultural applications. This reel is an excellent option for any user looking to save space and weight.
