Red/Yellow Chief®

Heavy Duty Attack Hose

Add versatile firefighting force to your fire department with Red and Yellow Chief® hoses. BullDog’s exclusive heavy-rib outer cover combines with a unique nitrile-rubber, PVC-through-the-weave construction to provide the backbone of excellent hose performance in Red Chief® and Yellow Chief®. The heavy-rib construction makes the hoses highly resistant to cuts, punctures, and abrasion. Impact and kink resistant, lightweight and easily maneuverable, Red Chief® and Yellow Chief®are ideally suited to meet the specifications and tough demands of most municipal fire departments. With a proof pressure of 600 PSI (4200 kPa) and a tolerance for heat and cold, these hoses maintain peak performance from temperatures in the range of -36º F to 158º F (-37°C to 70°C). Red Chief/Yellow Chief® hose is virtually maintenance free and requires no time-wasting drying after use. With these powerful hoses, you save time and money, since less backup hose is needed. Red Chief® and Yellow Chief® are in a class by themselves — clearly superior to traditional attack lines and compliant to NFPA 1961 standard.
