Mean Green Supply Hose

Mean Green seems to be the most liked supply hose around here. is this the stuff you guys are talking about?

is 3/4 ok or would you recommend 1"? i’m running 4gpm now, but by next spring i’m hoping to have either a 5.5gpm hot or 8gpm cold machine.

where do you guys buy this hose? i haven’t seen if for sale from the usual vendors most of us deal with (unless i missed it).

Mean Green makes a 1" diameter hose?

We get ours here. Mean Green 3/4 x 100’ Garden Hose

We run 3/4" with a 1" super swivel at the reel. It keeps up most days. 8 gpm or more.

Yep heard a lot about this hose and just received (2) 150’ sections for the box truck we’re building. Went with blue color.

Tim you have a picture of that at the swivel??

You will be fine with 3/4. I would recommend 100’ plus. We have 75’ and are ok most of the time but have a extra 75’ and 50’ if needed.its pretty rugged stuff.

thanks, everyone. i’ll probably go 150’ of 3/4". don’t have a hose reel yet, i’m debating between a titan, a summit or a hannay. i’ll be looking to stack it with a matching high pressure reel

It’s too cold to go unreel that hose for a picture, (39 degrees :slight_smile: )what do you want to know Mr Mac? I’m pretty sure there is a reducer bushing and a 22 or 45 degree elbow also.

Here ya go.

thanks Guy, I was confused I know exactly what your talking about, I got it now the 1 inch swivel at the reel going to the tank. Just lke you said LOL, for some reason I thought you were talking about running the 3/4 hose into a 1 inch hose, dont know how i thought that ,

No it’s 3/4" supply to the reel (1" manifold) then expands to 1" to the buffer tank.

Does it come in the Orange or Red, whatever color it is?

Thanks, they have the Green at Home Depot but I didnt see orange. They had some other orange type stuff by the same company but it didnt have the word mean on it.

I like the hose I have now but if I don’t take it completely off the reel it gets squished on the reel and reduces the flow. Does the mean green hose stay rigid enough to not let this happen?

Mean green stays open all the time on the reel. It doesn’t squish. There are no restrictions. I routinely unreel only 30-40 feet and have never had a problem.

I have 200’ on my reel and it does get squished. I may put something in there to expand center of the reel, maybe that will help.??..

I’m using a 1125-4-200 coxreel. 150 foot mean green. It has a recessed outlet and the drum is wide enough to where the bend doesn’t kink. The hose will kink if the bend is severe enough but I haven’t see it get squished yet.
