Most agricultural equipment doesn’t apply to the one size fits all mentality. Bazooka Farmstar’s hose reel line is no different. Our top picks from the Bazooka line are the Eclipse (2416), 2012, and 1810.
At the heart of all three of these hose reels is the Quantum Drive System; the only 3-speed hydraulic control on the market. This system offers the fastest controlled freewheel, hydraulic wind and unwind. Oftentimes precision is lost when speed is gained; but not in this case. The 3-speed push button controller gives you power for maximum precision hose winding. As your reel fills with hose, you can trade off speed for torque. The days of matching your tractor speed to reel speed are over with the Quantum Drive’s precise tension control. As you wind or unwind hose, you can adjust the tension as needed at whatever speed you prefer to drive.
Whether you want to build your own hose reel on Bazooka Farmstar’s website or want to sit down and discuss your options in person, we are here to serve you for success.
