    Default My Turn!>>I need information>>Mercedes HOSE?????

    I am in search of information on Mercedes Hose. I beleive it is made in Texas.... Until about 3 weeks ago, I have never even heard of it.

    Specifically, I am looking for any department that has it or has used it and has had or is having bad experiences with it.???????

    I understand it is a "knockoff" of NEIDNER HOSE and is cheaply made thus not holding up. Especially interested in busy departments that may be using it...but any and all information is appreciated.

    You can post a reply here or email me by going to my profile on here. In the subject.....put "Mercedes Hose" so I will know it is not junk mail. Please include the name of the department, a contact name and number.

    In typcial Fire Department Tradition...I NEED THIS INFORMATION YESTERDAY!!

    Is this the one? They're out of Quebec, not Texas.

    The department I was on 7 or 8 years ago bought some that was advertised as lightweight for highrise packs. We bought several hundred feet to set up multiple packs. Unfortunately, while I was there, we only used it in trainig, not an actual call, so I can't tell you how well it held up.

    Sorry I can't offer more help.
