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

With its long battery life, your team can 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.

“No one calls in sick on flushing days anymore.”
