    Default Hi Rise Pack Mounts

    Does anyone have a good idea how to mount a Hi-Rise pack in a tall compartment? Over a large peg and draped down the compartment? Any photos? Ideas?
    Thanks Ed....

    How is your hose racked? That might get some better answers.

    A bit of a tangent, but we just removed all our "Hi-rise bags" and moved to the metro-packs. Same equipment, same amount of hose, much easier to carry.

    When we did have the hi-rise bags we had them secured horizontally. I'm not sure how well it would work when trying to stack it vertically. If it's the same thing we had it would be too cumbersome. The metro packs may give you more flexibility if you need to mount them vertically in a tall compartment.

    Our high rise pack is loaded in a Cleveland load, and I see no reason why it couldnt be mounted on a peg hanging down. As mentioned above, I think it will depend on how you have the pack loaded.

    In the handtruck we have one 50ft and two 75ft lengths of 2-1/2" with a smooth bore nozzle. It's on a slide out tray held in place by a seatbelt.

    The compartments over the wheel wells each have a 75ft length of
    1-3/4". One length has a nozzle W/break away head for a 7/8" smooth bore. The other just has a reducer.

    In a side compartment is a bag with a shoulder strap that has an 18" pipe wrench, chocks, standpipe wheel, spanner, mallet, and a 5ft, length of 3" with a 2-1/2" wye W/reducers. The handline does not get connected directly to the standpipe, the pony length does.

    There are companies that might get 6 to 10 high rise alarm activations a day or a car fire in an undergroung garage and the hand truck is a home run for them.

    I don't have a pic of ours, but here's the same version. This is where I got the idea anyways. For ours I used 6" aluminum tubing and sliced it in half, welded to a piece of flat plate for mounting. Works great for this type of load.
