The Hose Humper extends the life of your hose by reducing tension between the manure applicator and hose that has been laid out in the field which ultimately decreases hose wear. A Hose Humper provides more flexibility by minimizing the need to shut down while moving to a new quadrant in the field.
The Hose Humper model A.TOM 6”- 8” is designed to work with lay-flat hoses 6 inches and 8 inches in diameter. It pivots to both left and right which enables more accurate hose placing outside tramlines which reduces pipe wear.
The mechanism reduces damage to the crop when spreading because the operator does not have to leave the tramlines when moving the hose.
The option to move the hose either side of the tractor also helps the operator to avoid obstacles more easily. The hydraulic offset and raising the wheel into the transport position is controlled from the tractors spool valve. When raised it also leaves the tractor pickup hitch available for other implements such as trailed hose realer or pump trailer. A breaking mechanism allows for the wheel to spin freely or be locked in position. By choosing to use Hose Humper, operators can reduce stress on pipe and couplings, which in turn reduce risks of leaks and spills.

- 3-point hitch
