The Hose Winder is a simple and effective device developed to recover
50' lengths of hose from the fire scene, stripping off mud, squeezing
out water and forming the hose quickly into a neat compact roll, making
hose delivery and round up a time-saving and efficient process. The
Scotty Hose Winder is manufactured from glass-reinforced nylon and

Step 1. Lay the hose on the ground and remove any twists.
Step 2. Separate the Reel Disc (A) from the Hand-grip/Hose
Gate (B) portion of the winder by grasping the reel handle (E) and
pulling on the Release Trigger (D).
Step 3. To secure the finished, wound hose with a rubber band,
stretch a heavy duty rubber band around the diameter of the reel. Two
notches are provided on the edge of the disc to help position the rubber
Step 4. Open the Hose Gate on the Hand-grip/Gate portion by
first pulling the Lock Bar (C) up and then swinging it over at least 90
to allow access for the hose (If the lock bar is too tight to swing out,
use a Phillips screw driver to slightly loosen the bolt holding the
lock bar in place).
Step 5. Snap the male end of the hose between the small clip and the center post on the inside of the reel.
Step 6. Clip the two winder halves back together. Be sure not
to allow any twisting, slip the hose into the open gate and swing the
lock bar back into place over the hose.
Step 7. Use the reel handle (E) to wind the hose onto the
reel. Wind the hose as tight as needed. If there are any twists in the
hose, stop and untwist them before continuing.
Step 8. To remove the wound hose, invert the winder
so the reel is on the underside, unlock the hose gate, pull the release
trigger and separate the two halves. Secure the free end of the hose by
pulling the rubber band off the reel and around the hose. Remove hose
