    Don't mean to stick my nose in your business, but why pay money for something (when god knows we all need to be frugal with our operating budgets these days in this economy) that can be performed by simply spreading the hose out on the floor, or even over a couple of cheap saw horses???? Wouldn't the couple of thousand bucks spent on a hose dryer be better spent on bunker gear, hand tools, or something else needed more????

    Have to agree with FWD on this.

    Why spend that kind of money when you don't have to? Lay them out, use saw horses, etc.

    Beside dryers aren't the best. Hose towers or elevated areas are better as they dry the hose and allow the water inside the hose to escape and therefore the inter liner is dry as well.

    Also buy hose that do not require drying!
