    Default Bumper donut roll search

    Many months ago there was a thread on here that discussed and showed a couple of videos of preconnected lines in the front bumper being donut rolled and stored standing up for a simple deployment. The thread even had a drawing or two on the set up for the storage area. I have searched and cannnot find it. Does anyone know where it may be or have a link. Thanks in advance for the help.

    I don't know where the thread is, but Rattlesnake, CO has three HUGE pumper/tanker/interface vehicles that have them on the front and rear.

    We have 100' loads in the bumper on several rigs. What we typically do on mine that works well is flat loading several flakes to allow enough to make it to the ground, then turning up two or four ears across them, then flat loading the rest, laying the nozzle on top, the laying the ears over.

    This allows us to grab the ears and lay the bundle on the ground, and get all 100' out quickly.

    I realize this isn't what you were specifically asking about, but it works well also.

    I havent been able to find the ones I was looking for. One of the videos showed hooking the sections together in the round bottom well and then showed a FF deploying the line. Later in the thread someone actually had a drawing with measurements that I think they were having made for a new truck. Thanks again for the help.

    Hey that looks familiar! Those hold 200 ft. each of 1.75" preconnected bumper loads. I have a bunch of information on this as we are very happy with our bumper loads. I must give credit where it is due to The "Battenburg Beast" as Blitzfiresolo was the one that really helped us see the value of these loads.

    We have pictures, video and specs on the Toyne set-up, as well as tips and pointers.

    We own two Powercalls in #1's buggie and #2's POV Not one other audible or visual device gets more comments than the two rotorays (Squad and Tower), just wish we had stuck with the halogen on the RR for the Squad, the LED is non-directional and has no "bounce".

    That thread really has a ton of great info on the bumper roll load. Westhampton's Power point is perfect, and LADDERTRUCKGOES comments and tips are very valuable.

    While not quite a front bumper, I find this video on donut rolls interesting.

    That's quite an interesting concept! I'm gonna send this to the guys on our apparatus committee just to see what kind of comments I get.
