Hercules, Hercules, HERCULES!!

In literature, comic books and film, Hercules is a divine hero known for his super human strength. If naming a steel garden hose after the mythological God wasn't enough to convince you of the hose's power, the company made a commercial showing a car running it over, a chainsaw attempting to to slice through it, even a shark chomping down on the hose ... still, the commercial says, the hose survives and works perfectly!  The Hercules Garden Hose claims it won't break under pressure, it won't kink and that it is the toughest hose you will ever own.

A big thank you to the Hamtramck Firefighters for, some of the toughest people in town, who helped us put these claims to the test and find out, will it work?

The 50 foot Hercules Garden Hose costs about $40. It's available at Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond and on several websites.
