Crusader Hose have come from humble origins to become the world-leading manufacturer of hose for travelling irrigators. Over 35 years the company has not only grown in size, but with a dynamic Research & Development Team have developed world’s best-quality goods. The range of products now includes layflat hose and reel systems for irrigation, fire, and mine dewatering.
Noel Gardner from Think Water Whitsunday attests to this, “We are a major supplier of hose and equipment to the sugar industry. The quality and demands on the long lengths of irrigation hose have caused many challenges for these suppliers. The latest developments by Crusader Hose have brought the Flexidrag® to worlds best standard.”
With a culture of continuous improvement, the key developments in the Flexidrag® have been both low-pressure flexibility and ease of handling. Technical improvements in concentricity and adding annealing were both achieved after major plant investment and upgrade. Francois Steverlynck, managing director of Crusader Hose, maintains, “We can confidently say that we have a hose as good, if not better, than Angus, Travelflex and Snaptite. Furthermore, we stand by our products with a 10-year warranty; something that some importers have had issues with.”
“As a preferred supplier to the Think Water Group, we look forward to building on our relationships with more member stores. We are here for the long haul and are fully committed to the irrigation industry of Australia and New Zealand,” Francois concluded.
Our travelling irrigator hose features an abrasion resistant cover, which enables it to handle rough terrain. It is supplied in diameters ranging from 40mm to 152mm and lengths up to 350m.
Long-lasting & high-quality product
The polyurethane hose has a high UV resistance and is not prone to cracking like rubber hose. This makes it an ideal travelling irrigator hose solution. Flexidrag® comes with a 10-year pro-rata warranty.
