I personally used the Power Roller last night to unload 2,000' of 2 1/2" hose and 3,000' of 5" with one more firefighter. We were transferring from old trucks to new. It took us about 35 minutes. Your product is amazing! Thanks.

We just got the RollNRack System. The crews LOVE IT! Said they wish they had had it sooner.

I'm not sure even a new engine would be as appreciated as the Power Roller!!!
As a Training Chief of a combination department, we're always battling against time. Using the Power Roller, we've seen a marked improvement in our ability to maximize our trainings. We're pulling and laying more line than ever before and we're able to get our units back in service in less time, with less people and with far less effort.
Simply stated, it’s a time and injury saver.

We saw it at FDIC and we said, we have to have it. Well, we’ve had the Efficiency Package and FASTBACK for three years now. Everyone’s impressed with the system. This is one of the best investments ever for us. We tell every department… yea, you need one. We’re proud to own it. Thanks.

The RollNRack System is excellent!
It's a force multiplier because less personnel can accomplish all tasks efficiently. The safety of personnel is my first goal and this back saver makes their job easier. At large fires, that require a lot of big lines, our out of service times are reduced. It's very dependable – no problems at all.

We own an Efficiency Package. We're rolling around 60,000’ of 4” LDH and at least that in attack line annually. I keep the extra battery pack in the charger all the time so I can keep the roller going all day. So far, so good. We really enjoy using the Power Roller. Thank you!

That Power Roller is an amazing product! We're using it all the time down at our Training Center. With all the hose related training we do, it'll help prevent back injuries. Thank you.
Captain Michael Johnson
Tacoma Fire Dept, Safety Division - Tacoma, WA
Best safety appliance we've ever bought. Pays for itself due to the lack of back injury and workman's comp claims. If you have LDH, it's a must for every fire station, big or small.
AC Don Askew
Emerald Isle Fire Dept - Emerald Isle, NC
Just want to say, we bought the complete RollNRack System and used it Monday to pick up over 2000 feet of LDH. All I can say is, WOW. We made an impression on the departments that were there. I was contacted today to see where we got it, so I gave them your info. Great product and thanks for helping them out when they contact you.

I was just talking to one of my service hands who asked me why I liked the RollNRack Power Roller over the Rookie unit that already handles 7.25" LDH. My answer was, you don't have to lift the hose roll and that is important for sure. But the hose isn't dragged over the ground with water weight causing abrasion issues and premature wear. I think that is extremely important.
VP Emergency Response Operations TYCO_ Williams Fire & Hazard - Beaumont/Port Arthur, TX
We have owned a RollNRack Power Roller for 4 years. As a hose testing company, we roll thousands of feet of LDH a week. The Power Roller has proven itself to be a durable and indispensable piece of equipment for us.

We were able to use our Power Roller for the first time at a large scale mutual aid incident. The host department had 1500' of 5" laid out. At mop up, we sent for our Efficiency Package to be brought to the scene. Definitely the ONLY way to pick up LDH!

The Power Roller performed great all summer, rolling over 42,000' of hose!
Suncor Energy Inc - Fort McMurray, Alberta Canada
This is the best fire product we've purchased in a long time. The first day we received the Power Roller, the guys tested about 1000' of three inch. I couldn't get them to do that before even if I dangled food or money in front of them! Great product! Keep up the good work and stay safe.

You have a great product!
Craig Herbert, Training Officer
Fergus Falls Fire Dept - Furgus Falls, MN
The RollNRack Efficiency Package we purchased has been excellent! We're a small department and we use a lot of LDH. Before this purchase, exhausted firefighters had to manhandle LDH afterward. This was particularly dangerous in the winter with slick or icy conditions. Now with the RollNRack System, we can drain and roll all hose easily. We're able to put apparatus back in service sooner with fewer firefighters. Apparatus stays parked and never has to be moved. This greatly improves safety of all personnel by bringing the hose to the rigs not moving the rigs to the hose. The RollNRack equipment also eliminates having to lift rolls of LDH, avoiding potential injuries. With the 2 1/2" jaws, it has sped up annual hose testing! Thanks.

We received our RollNRack Efficiency Package today at around 1100 Hrs. At 1400 Hrs we were dispatched to a First Due working fire. First engine nosed in to a hydrant and the second secured a secondary water source laying out 500' of 5". We were then dispatched to a second First Due working fire at around 2100 Hrs. We layed out 900' of 5" . Let's just say the guys LOVVVVE the Power Roller and think it's a "good luck charm". They also didn't complain about loading the hose! Thank you and we hope to get lots of use out of your products.

We've received the Power Roller and it is GREAT!! What a fantastic machine. Thanks.
Kenbri Firefighting B.V. - Netherlands
After 3 years of doing the "DUCK WALK" rolling LDH by hand, we've finally convinced the owner of our hose testing company to purchase a Power Roller and we can't thank you enough for this invention. No longer do we have to ride back in a truck smelling of Bengay from testing hose all day. It's so much easier going to a fire station, to test their hose, knowing that we have the RollNRack to assist us. We use the Power Roller for an average of 4-5,000' per day and have been going strong since June (2009) and have had no problems from the machine. I strongly suggest to anyone who is thinking of buying the RollNRack Power Roller to stop thinking about it and purchase it for the sheer ergonomics.
Sharp Testing Services - Magnolia, TX
I would like to take a moment to tell you how pleased we are with the RollNRack "Efficiency Package" we purchased earlier in the year (2009). It was unbelievable how "fun", and fast, this made hose testing this year. To a member, all are more than impressed. The unit has been placed in service to aid in hose draining and rolling at major incidents.
Deputy Chief Ken Phipps
Lake Country Fire Dept. - Waukesha County, WI
We purchased our RollNRack and Power Roller in May of 2009. We are a mostly volunteer fire district with 12 stations and have 1 3/4", 2 1/2", 3" and just over 15,000 feet of 5" hose. The main reason we purchased the units was to assist with our annual hose testing. Most of the personnel hated to deal with the LDH during hose testing. The Power Roller has changed everything! Not only has it sped up 5" hose testing, but it takes a lot less people to do it. It works so well, that we expanded the system by purchasing the 2 1/2"-3" coupling jaws - and it works just as well. Before we purchased it, we where concerned about the battery life. This didn't pose a problem at all. We keep the battery pack charged-especially if we know we're going to use it a lot. It lasts until we're done with everything. We love your product, keep up the good work!
Chief Chris Berndt
Western Taney County Fire District - Branson, MO
On behalf of the Oconomowoc Fire Department, I want to thank you for the RollNRack and Drain attachment. It has been a labor and back saving addition well received by our department. This was demonstrated when we had to remove 600 feet of 5" hose from our rescue engine before it went in for service. While we do not have the electric motor to roll the hose, the ability to rock the coiled hose (instead of lifting) onto the unit was a huge back and time saver. Being able to wheel, rather than carry, the hose over to the storage area and again rock the rolls out, instead of lift the rolls out, was much appreciated! Two members unloaded, rolled, moved and stored 600' of 5" in less than fifteen minutes- without having to lift any of it! We look forward to loading the hose back onto the rig after we get it back from servicing! I thank you again for this wonderful addition to our equipment inventory. Feel free to have anyone contact me for more information or to see the unit in person.
Deputy Fire Chief - City of Oconomowoc Fire Dept
Thank you for producing the best hose rolling system on the market. I work in an industrial setting and have 1000s of lengths of hose to test, ranging from 1 1/2" - 5". Not only has the Power Roller cut my rolling time in half, it rolls tight even rolls and eliminates having to walk the water out. Safety is always first and the Power Roller is a major back saver and is easy to use. I highly recommend the Power Roller to anyone that has to roll hose.
Site Protection H&S - Dominion Nuclear, CT
We have used the RollNRack Power Roller several times- it really saves time & our backs. The last time we used it, we drained, rolled & loaded about 5,000' of 5 " hose. We can't imagine trying to do it without the Power Roller now. This is one of the best investments we have made.

The RollNRack System provides firefighters with a safe and efficient alternative for picking up large diameter hose.
Fire Flow Technology Engineer, Las Vegas, NV
We tried out our new RollNRack with the Drain Attachment for hose testing. One other guy and I tested 900 feet of 5 inch LDH. I drained it all myself. It has never been easier or faster to load LDH. I've had back pain so I really appreciate a tool that saves my back. Thanks for this great tool.

I just wanted to let you know that we are very pleased to have the RollNRack at WCTC. We are striving to teach our students to work smarter and hopefully prolong their careers in the fire service by taking advantage of devices such as this that can help prevent back injuries. Looking forward to your hoseroller!
Thomas K. Schlei, MS, EFO
Fire Service Training Instructor - WCTC Waukesha, WI
When I saw you demonstrate the RollNRack at the Fire Tech Reno show last year (2004), I knew that our department would benefit from the use of this tool. When the RollNRack arrived there was some initial resistance. Following the first use, the resistance was replaced by acceptance and requests for units to be placed throughout the department. As the chief officer who reviews injury forms, I believe that the RollNRack will contribute toward the elimination of back injuries sustained while reloading hose. Thank you for the the RollNRack.
Division Chief Gary Scholar
City of Chico Fire Dept - Chico, CA
The RollNRack has come in handy after incidents, during work hours, and during training. Our people don't mind (as much) laying LDH during training evolutions when they know the RollNRack is available to help them load it back up. Less personnel are necessary when staffing is low to reload crosslays and hose beds during station duty. The RollNRack has exceeded our expectations.

I will continue to spread the word about the RollNRack. Thanks ... The guys love it.
