    Really, never heard of it.

    Whipline: A short hoseline, generally 3 to 10 feet long, connected to a discharge on a brush truck and used by firefighters riding on the rig to allow for fire attack while the vehicle is in motion.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    Hmmm. Something to think about for our new skid, thanks.

    What we did on our brush tuck is mounted commercial grade hose reels behind the cab and put 100 feet of 3/4 inch garden hose on them. Who ever is sitting in the passenger seat can utilize one and the drive can have one on his side for spot fires. The only other line onboard our brush truck is a 200 foot crosslay pre-connect of 1 inch forestry hose.
