Increase Productivity With a Long Battery Life and Short Recharge Time
With Hydrant Buddy’s long battery life, your team can now complete 15-20 hydrants before recharging. But we made sure that recharge doesn’t take all day, so they’re back to work after only 30 minutes.
Reduce Injury. Increase Productivity.
At only 23 pounds, torque up to 400 lbs-ft, and variable speed up to 30 rpms, the Hydrant Buddy has successfully reduced common workplace injuries like:
✓ Rotator cuff tears and tendonitis
✓ Lower back strain and fatigue
✓ Tennis elbow
✓ Joint pain
✓ Pinched spinal nerves
✓ Carpal tunnel
The Hydrant Buddy costs less than one single injury payout while keeping your team safer.
Lighter and Easier to Use Than the Competition
Other solutions are loud, heavy, and still difficult to operate. We made the Hydrant Buddy to solve all those problems. It’s only 23 lbs. and has a long battery life to increase productivity while reducing injuries.
Developed with Municipalities in Mind
Designed and built in communication with Minnesota municipalities, we understand the specific budgetary and staffing challenges associated with hydrant flushing.
