Mass Liquid Transfer: Mainline and Drag Hose for Manure, Slurry, & Sludge

When the task at hand is moving heavy liquids such as manure for agriculture; slurries for mining; or sludge at municipalities; BullDog Hose has you covered with the most rugged and reliable lay-flat hose products 100% made in the USA.

Prime examples include BullDog’s Mainline and Drag Hose large diameter lay-flat products that can be utilized to establish a complete manure slurry delivery system. This originates with pumping from a farm site using the standard blue Mainline for executing complete transfer to a field miles away for soil application via the standard orange Drag Hose behind a tractor.

Meet the Mainline lay-flat products

Starting with Mainline in 7.25-inch; 8-inch; or 10-inch diameters, long continuous hose lengths can be quickly deployed and retrieved using rugged power-driven hose reel carts. Importantly, Mainline has low pressure loss for very efficient pumping over great distances and potential obstacles.

Featuring a unique through-the-weave one-piece construction (comprising a circular-woven high-tenacity polyester reinforcement completely encapsulated in a tough elastomeric polyurethane cover and lining), Mainline hose has tremendous flexibility and kink resistance.

This allows natural ground contours to be followed without putting stress on the hose line and eliminating costly path cutting work. Plus, fewer joints and faster connections with this product translate to reduced labor and equipment costs.

How does this help mass liquid transfer?

Once moved via Mainline to the field site for crops, BullDog’s Drag Hose takes command behind your application machinery and equipment. Specifically designed to be pulled and dragged behind tractors and sludge injection toolbars/applicators that strategically apply liquids into the soil for enrichment, our Drag Hose is proven to handle the toughest conditions. 

Constructed of durable, abrasion-resistant thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material, BullDog’s Drag Hose also features through-the-weave construction just like Mainline and is very kink resistant.  Available in diameters ranging from 5-inch to 7.25-inch, it is also collapsible for ease of storage when not in use.

In addition to all your lay-flat hose needs, Puck offers hose reel carts; lead pumps; booster pumps; toolbars; applicators; and more as well as multiple couplings and adapters from U.S. Coupling that you may need.
