Hard Hose Reels

MEDIUM APPLICATION IRRIGATOR SYSTEM

Hard hose reel irrigators are used to distribute effluent using a trailer-mounted hose reel with an oscillating sprinkler gun attached to the hose. The hose is a MDPE pipe. The FDE is pumped to the hose reel and into a turbine that turns the reel, winding in the sprinkler. This system can apply at a requested rate and depth.
