Hose reel mount
this is a hose reel mount for one of my fire departments brush trucks. also you cant see it but it also has a electric motor mount (to help with rolling up 200 feet of 1 inch hose) on the other side.
I took 25 ft 2 by 1 inch C-channel and cut it in to my basic frame. i ended up having to cut and bend my to top pieces to allow for clearance for the hose to be quickly rolled up. after i got the main frame built i made some cardboard templets of my corners and cut them out of some diamond plate alum i had laying around. after i installed the mount i drilled and pop riveted the diamond plate on.
25 feet of 2x1 inch C-channel. some scrap diamond plate alum. i use a chop saw to cut the channel and a plasma cutter to cut the alum. for a welder i used a milleratic 250 mig welder.
