The Hannay FF Series standard booster reels are designed to handle 1¼- or 1½-inch I.D. booster hoses or 1½- or 1¾-inch I.D. collapsible hose. The booster hose reel is steel-painted graphite with aluminum, but stainless steel construction is also available. A gear-driven crank rewind and pinion brake come standard with options for a chain-and-sprocket drive powered by electric, hydraulic, or compressed-air motor.

Rollers and roller-mounting brackets are accessory items that can be added on request. The Series can handle pressures up to 600 psi. A Super Booster® reel is an available option, which weighs up to 30 percent less than the standard booster reel because of its aluminum construction. www.hannay.com, 877-467-3357

The Agri Drain Warthog Floating Pump is a rugged, highly-efficient pump that pumps water at a rate of 850 gpm for fast, efficient water removal or retrieval. The pump weighs approximately 85 pounds, allowing for the setup and use of the pump to be a one-person job. With the optional floating fuel tank, you can increase the typical run time from around one hour to approximately 12 to 15 hours between refueling intervals. Just set it in the water, roll out the hose, pull the cord, and walk away.

The Warthog Floating Pump is great for water removal as well as supplying water from a remote water source. The pump’s 400-foot hose can move water from a flooded area or can take water from a water source and supply it to an area where it is urgently needed. www.agridrain.com, 800-232-4742
