Hoses stay free of wear
I had problems with cornstalks rubbing through the hose on the fertilizer toolbar on my planter. So I pushed the hose through a spring that has a little bigger inside diameter than the hose’s outside diameter. Now the spring acts like a flexible armor for the hose; the stalks rub on the metal spring, which saves my hoses. I haven't had a single hose rub through since I did this.
