Drag Hose System Packages

Drop Pond Levels Fast & Turn Brown Into Gold!

  • 'Any farmer with a large pond should investigate this option before investing in expensive unnecessary infrastructure or equipment.'
    Sweetwaters Farms
  • ‘It’s not as exciting as driving the tanker, but a whole lot faster and easier on the body.’
    Grant Allen
    Dairy Farmer, North Taranaki
  • 'It looked like a system that'd be easy to implement on the farm, and would let us spread over a wide range in a short amount of time - which is exactly what we need.'
    Mark Walker
    Dairy Farmer, Gore
  • ‘It was the best system I could find for applying a lot of effluent in a short space of time.’
    Kerry Cutler
    Dairy Farmer, Northland
  • ‘We’re spreading larger quantities, further, faster and more evenly, which means we only have to go over the paddock once to get all the nutrients down. It’s saving us a lot of time, and allows us to spread in much larger windows of weather.’
    Geoff O'Connor
    Dairy Farmer, Blackball Greymouth

Nevada's Drag Hose System


Drag hose system - Drop pond levels fast and turn brown into gold with Nevada's Rainwave™ or Tramspread Dribble Bar umbilical drag hose system!


Say goodbye to lost nutrients and wasted money on artificial fertilisers. Nevada's drag hose systems allow you to spread those effluent nutrients more effectively, ensuring more nutrients reach the ground and reducing nitrogen being released into the atmosphere.


Economical and efficient, our drag hose systems will have you spreading further, fully utilising the nutritional value of your effluent and reducing storage levels in no time.


With custom options to fit your specific needs and the ability to apply 1,000,000+ litres per day with ease, it's time to upgrade your effluent spreading game. Explore our drag hose system options below, or get in touch to find out more!

RainWave™ 3PL Applicator


The Nevada RainWave applicator has been developed as a good overall effluent spreading solution, providing speed, control, an even spread pattern, wide spreading distribution and producing larger effluent droplets that minimise wind drift and volitisation. The 3 point linkage system is also very light on the tractor, making it an excellent choice over softer soils. If you’re looking to empty and spread your effluent pond fast with a low application depth, the RainWave applicator is your best bet with the ability to spread over 1,000,000 litres in one day.  


The simplicity of the RainWave makes it a very economical option, and the compact design means there’s no issues with getting through farm gates or spreading over hilly or uneven ground. They’re also really easy to operate, requiring very little skill.

A Smart Spreading Solution


By using low pressure and an oscillating fan pattern, the Rainwave™ applicator achieves a wider spread and produces larger droplets, meaning virtually no wind drift, so effluent nutrients are spread evenly.

What's more, by using the Nevada Rainwave™, you'll get more from your nutrients!
How?  As the name suggests, the Rainwave™ uses low pressure to spread nutrients in a gentle rain pattern.  This reduces volitisation so nutrients are not lost to the atmosphere.

Benefits Of A Rainwave™


  • Ideal alternative to dropper booms
  • Large droplet size, so very minimal wind drift
  • Better nutrient use
  • Gentle low-pressure rain pattern
  • Better for the environment
  • Less pasture damage
  • Low application depth (1-10mm)
  • Safe tractor speeds (less than 7km/h)
  • High volume (100m3/h - 200m3/h)
  • Very even spread pattern
  • Low maintenance
  • Handles thick slurry (up to 20% solids)

Nevada Trailing Shoe 

As well as greatly reducing odour and evaporation. There are many benefits when using a trailing shoe – with effluent being placed directly to the soil (base of the plant) there is virtually no volitisation, or wind drift, and no crop spoiling.

The Nevada Trailing Shoe assemblies come in four widths; 6.0m, 7.5m, 9.0m, 10.5m, and 12.0m. These trailing shoes are for Tractor Driven spreading.




  • Rear lights
  • Hydraulic clamping
  • Manual width adjustment (with ball valve)
  • Manual tramline shut-off (with ball valve)
  • Electric control panel SMART CONTROLLER for hydraulic control

Hose Reelers

Nevada's hose reelers have been developed and perfected after many years of contracting to provide the optimum solution combining heavy duty strength and ease of use.

Both random wrap and segmented mounted umbilical hose reelers are available, and all are fitted with a heavy duty, 3 point linkage and a female Quick fit ‘A’ frame. When the male ‘A’ frame is located it is secured by two loose fitting pins.

Nevada LRB 800 Hose Reeler

The 600m version has a detachable spool which is easily and quickly removed from the heavy duty and robust carrying frame by removing two securing pins, lowering the reel to the ground and moving away. One frame can serve several spools. The spool is rotated by a heavy duty motor and gear drive powered hydraulically from the tractor, giving a positive and controlled recovery and laying out of the hose with no over-run. A large trough in the centre of the spool is used for easy loading of drag hose and couplings.


  • Holds 800m of 3", 600m of 4", or 500m of 5" layflat hose

  • Random wrap
  • Single hydraulic drive
  • Removable spools
  • Ideal for medium size systems
  • Includes optional hose guide 

TS 1000 Hose Reeler

The 1000m version has all the features of the 600m and in addition, has twin hydraulic drive to give increased power to hose recovery which allows longer lengths of drag hose to be recovered at any one time. This reeler can comfortably hold up to either 1000m of 4” hose, 800m of 5” hose, 600m of 6” hose or a mixture of when using the easily attached partitions.


  • Holds 1000m of 4", 800m of 5", or 600m of 6" layflat hose
  • Front or rear mounted
  • Random wrap
  • Double hydraulic drive
  • Removable spools 

Heavy Duty Segmented Hose Reelers

Heavy Duty Segmented Hose Reelers are available in capacities of 1000m, 1200m, and 1400m

With galvanised reels hydraulically operated from both tractor and reeler to allow controlled recovery and laying out with no over-run. Each segment holds 200m of 4 inch or 5" drag hose.
