Short-haul hose care system Vario E-U

Hose soaking, hose laundry, pressure testing, hose coiling — with our Vario E-U, a single person processes two hoses (max. size B) in one go. The patented automatism handles up to 250 hoses a day: highly compliant to strict rules such as DIN 14092-6 and CE. Hose dimensions: 75 mm x 20 m (3 in x 66 ft) max.
