Red/Yellow Chief®

Keep your operation at the ready with the Red/Yellow Chief® jacket attack hose. 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.  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.
