Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Functional, attractive way to store and move long garden hoses
This is a very useful addition to any yard to manage long garden hoses. Makes it easy to unwind and rewind the hose as well as to move the hose around on lawns for lawn mowing. Very easy and quick to assemble with simple instructions. It also includes the short connector hose to hook the hose cart up to the nearest hose bib. The handle folds flat when not in use and unlocks simply for moving the cart around. It is a neutral sandy brown color which blends in well in the yard and is made of metal instead of plastic which makes it much more durable than the plastic equivalents.
We have several hose bibs around our yard to make it easier to water different parts of the garden. We normally buy the 100' hoses from our local membership stores and end up with mounds of hose scattered around the hose bib or untidy piles of partially dragged around hose. This cart is easy to assemble (about 5 minutes) and just needs a Philips screwdriver to tighten the screw on the cranking handle. It took a little time to wind the hose onto the reel spool as I had to pay attention to making sure the hose lined up on the reel for easy rewinding however the spool held our 100' hose with plenty of room to spare.
The cart is made of metal which should hold up well in the hot California sunshine and comes with a 5 year guarantee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AshesEra Nice design and functional!
The cart has soft rubber wheels that won't scratch tiles nor wood floors. It's a solid frame. It has a good thick coat of paint even though I did see a little rust. However, that cart very easy to pull around and the hose is easy to pull out and roll in. The design is beautiful and looks great in the yard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cl6809 Good product
I've needed a hose reel for a while, but the majority I've seen tend to be plastic and look cheesy as well as cheap. I like that this is largely metal and feels substantial - yes, I realize that's not an indicator of much, but perception can be an important overall indicator of the product. The hose reel is sturdy, well-made, easy to use and attractive enough that I don't worry if someone can see it from the street. When fully loaded with a hose, the wheels and pivoting handle make moving it around the yard a lot easier and demonstrate that a bit more thought went into the design of this as compared to others on the market. I'll probably get a second (and perhaps third) for the back yard hoses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew Great!
I very much look forward to using this unit this spring and summer. I've had one of these on my to-buy list for a while and I'm glad I came across this one. I like that it's 250 feet as that's MORE than enough for what I need it for. I think I use a 100ft one right now and I really could use the extra 150 feet. It seems to be built well and comes completely assembled out of the box. All it took was pulling some tape and styrofoam off the piece and it was all set to go! I'd recommend this, no doubt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fuscia Sturdy, decorative, and handy
This is a sturdy cart, and a little heavy, but obviously made well. I need something to wrangle my hoses but also needed something I could move around. I found this to be a decorative way to do just that. My only concern is that it is already rusting in one spot and I've only had it in my garage for a few weeks. It would also be nice if it could hold more hose length.

Best hose cart out there. Would get this over all the other cheap plastic ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thedude Solid product
I bought this reel a couple weeks ago and have used it a couple times. While it's hard to get overly excited about a hose reel I'll say this easily delivers on what you expect from the picture and description.
I read some reviews on other sites (before purchasing here) that mentioned some plastic components around the crank. That was not the case. This thing is very steardy and looks good. The hose comes off the reel with ease and the bar in the bottom front is a perfect place to put your foot while reeling the hose back in to keep it stable... It's a sinch and I expect it will last for years.
I was hoping to pay less given the simplicity of the product category but I found this to be fairly priced relative to similar products. I would certainly recommend it over the low end plastic version it replaced!

This is a very large shovel. It can move a lot of snow or dirt or mud. The handle grip is very comfortable. The aluminum blade is very strong and can hold it's weight in dirt or snow.
