I need to run 5000' of 2" bull-hose for tools

I need to run 5000' of 2" bull-hose to run 2EA 35lb rivet busters and a few small air tools do you have any recommendations on what would be the best set.


I do not have a choice but run 5000' because of the access

5000 feet of hose to run tools
by: Bill

Tell us a bit about your air compressor... make, model and HP.

What kind of flow and pressure do the highest demand tools need, and I am going to assume that the 35lb rivet busters are the highest demand tools.

Granted you cannot get a compressor near the work space, how about putting tanks in various locations along the line to allow pressure to build and improve flow?

In what temperature are you going to be doing this work, and if it's near or sub zero, is the compressor indoors, and are the lines going to be outside?
