    Default Firequip Hose

    Anybody have any comments on this stuff. The area where I am pretty much runs Ponn Supreme/Conquest with Neidner becoming common. No experience myself, just looking is it competitive/cost effective? Local Company just bought a bunch.

    Talking

    Many years ago, (more than I really want to remember) my secretary gave me a little wooden sign to hang on my office wall. The office was along a corrodor that led from the main (President's) office to the manufacturing floor. Several weeks after the sign was hung, I received a request to remove that sign..... Perhaps it was a little too much to the point for a Q.C. Manager. The sign read:

    If you want nice fresh oats, you must pay a fair price.
    If you can use oats that has already been through the horse,
    It comes a little cheaper!

    And more to the point...Investigate anything that you buy carefully,
    Lest you find it has already been through the horse.

    I thought I read this question in several other locations in this site.

    We used their hose line for maybe 10 years back in the late 1970's and into the 1980's.

    Always had good luck with them. Thats when Red Head Brass was in business and that was the couplings that were attached to their hose line.

    Redhead Brass is still very much in business. Quite a few hose manufacturers use their couplings.
