    Honestly I wish we had one on our rescue pumper at my #1 POC FD. It would be so handy for washdowns, grass fires, rubbish fires, and for washing off equipment after a call.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes

    We have found that the cost for the reel, hose and nozzle is almost double the cost of the trash line. The trash line being 1.75 and 100' rubber hose gives much more punch than the 1" booster. Forestry line is much easier and lighter on grass fires as well.

    We have not found that the benefit of a rewind reel is worth the additional cost for us. It might be for some. I personally felt it was worth putting that extra money into the LED scene lighting as it would get used more often then the reel. (IMO) But that is why we have committees and what works for us does not necessarily work for FyredUp and vice versa...

    We use front trash line for whatever a booster reel did in the past. We also got a 1 3/4" adapter to garden hose thread. We have a short length of garden hose that we can hook up and use to wash tools off, refill water extinguishers, etc.

    We have booster lines on most of our trucks and we use them quite often. Our newest rescue pumper has the booster line built into the front bumper. I will try to get some pics up tomorrow.
