    hahahaha I like that answer. But I'm sure it's not it. I have a pic but can't load it to here cause it's to big.

    My first impression is that you must be the new guy. Did they send you to get a left handed wrench, too? A bucket of steam? A water hammer?

    For a brief period in the mid-1020's, some manufacturers offered a round basket for storage of the booster hose, as opposed to the more popular hose reel. If there was an advantage, it would have to have been the lack of moving parts/swivels.

    I didn't find any pictures on-line, but there are several in McCall's "American Fire Engines Since 1900." I base my time frame on when such baskets can be seen in pictures in the book.

    A.D. 1020.
    This year came King Knute back to England; and there was at Easter a great council at Cirencester, where Alderman Ethelward was outlawed, and Edwy, king of the churls. This year went the king to Assingdon; with Earl Thurkyll, and Archbishop Wulfstan, and other bishops, and also abbots, and many monks with them; and he ordered to be built there a minster of stone and lime, for the souls of the men who were there slain, and gave it to his own priest, whose name was Stigand; and they consecrated the minster at Assingdon. And Ethelnoth the monk, who had been dean at Christ's church, was the same year on the ides of November consecrated Bishop of Christ's church by Archbishop Wulfstan.

    Looking at that pic I have no idea.

    They look like a couple of plastic buckets you'd pick up at Home Depot or Lowe's.

    The only thing I can guess is they put forestry hose in the buckets and use the buckets to lay out the hose.

    Those buckets have reels inside for air hose/electric cord with a cut-out on the side for deploying it.

    We have some for electric cord. Work pretty nice actually. I like them better than the little manual reels we have for cord.
