Mass PAT hosedrag
Just a quick question. I have the actual PAT for Massachusetts community tomorrow, and when I went to the practice PAT I found I had trouble on the hose drag. It is an 1-3/4" rubber hose that simulates a charged hoseline about 50 feet long. It is not very flexible. You then run in U shape maze that requires you to crouch down and has a roof so you can not stand up. You make 2 90 degree turns and have 20 seconds to complete it and get the hose across the finish line about 50 feet from the end of the U maze. I kept hitting like 22 seconds and at one point 26. Any advice on the right form and or grip of dragging this thing? Thanks so much!

lean way forward and go. Don't stop at all especially the further you go.

hold the nozzle in front of you with arms fully extended. Lean wayyyyy over. That way you're basically pushing the hose rather than dragging it. Practice using a rope and an old tire. Drag it on the same surface that you'll be dragging the hose on...
