Necessity is the mother of invention! Inspired by the benefits of the Cleveland hose lay, these firefighters in Tasmania have built a hose rolling device at their station to assist in quickly packaging up their hose into the Cleveland Load. Hose rolling tools are nothing new, but this one is designed specifically with the Cleveland Lay in mind and from what they said, it works a charm!
Have you seen, used or built something similar? Let us know!
If you’re wondering how you can stow this type of hose configuration, have a look at how Galston Rural Fire Brigade in NSW have their pumper set up.
