Hydro Engineering has answered the call to save producers time of rolling and unrolling manure applicators hoses with its HR128AG hose reel that provides liquid manure application technology that is both innovative and easy to operate. The hose reel’s hydraulic articulating hitch and Danfoss DP200 control unit allow you to pick up hose on the go while maintaining a tight, even wrap, all without leaving the tractor seat. An electrohydraulic circuit automatically matches reel speed to the tractor’s travel speed, offering a fast, versatile method to fill the entire reel without leaving the cab.
Pat Thome, New Product Tour panelist who uses a hose system on his family’s Adams, Minn., operation, says loading and unloading hose is a big time-eater. “You can only pump so fast, but if you can save time unrolling and rolling up hose that’s big.”
