Rated 4 out of 5Â by Grandmaof3 heavy Duty easy to put together! Great Customer service!
We ordered this for my husbands 88 yr Mother for Christmas. Gardening is her favorite pass time , until she rolls up her hose that was hard to turn and was always kinking. After Christmas, we pulled it out of the box, and found it to be bent ,and no accessories. We called the company and was very accommodating, and willing to send us what we needed. We decided to return the whole thing to Home depot and ordered a new one. This one arrived promptly, and appears to be in Good shape. She has siding and cement in the back so to make it easier for her we raised it up on cement block so she didn't have to bend over to roll it up. We used Epoxy Glue that we found in the cement area at Home Depot to secure it. Epoxy set up and within 30 minutes Mom was out trying out her new wheel! So far She absolutely loves it and the little holes are perfect for her sprinklers and sprayers .

After buying several inexpensive hose reels we decided to purchase metal ones that will last. These are such excellent quality I would recommend them to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mark Solid hose reel but needed minor adjustment
Solid, well constructed hose reel. Arm was bent when I received it but I didn't notice it until I attached the handle. At that point the nut that holds the handle to the arm would hit the frame which would not allow the reel to unwind. Easy fix to bend the arm out about 1" and now it works just fine.
This replaces the plastic boxes that I have been replacing every couple of years and I expect this to last much much longer.
This reel does need to be firmly attached to something and since I don't like bolting anything to the house I used scrap pier blocks and pressure treated wood to build a heavy base as you can see in the pictures.
I have a heavy-duty 100' hose on it now and it easily reels it up even when its fully stretched out. Best hose reel I have bought so far (over 20+ years I have tried them all).
The best part is all of the pieces are heavy gauge metal and the fittings are heavy-duty brass. The only plastic is the handle but that is designed to spin loosely around the metal core which is bolted to the arm. Feels strong and is comfortable to use.
I will be buying another one for the front yard.
I would have given this reel 5 stars if the arm wasn't bent.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hogjaws Big improvement over the plastic thing it placed.
Reel cranks smoothly, quality paint job and constructuion. First thing I noticed was how easy it is to pull out the hose. Mounting on the outside wall required my adding new home-made mounting bars so I could use the exisiting holes from the old reel but that was a personal choice. Looks like it will last a long time.
