About $5 worth of lightweight materials in this poorly designed and constructed junk. Flimsy, wobbly and practically useless for its purpose. With a 75 foot hose it is a nightmare. Spent a half hour untangling a hose from its innards with my blood pressure hitting the roof. The Suncast hose reels are much better when securely attached to a wall with heavy duty toggles. The quality of many products is shameful these days and they are not that inexpensive. This is one of those products. Save yourself the anger and frustration. Select another model!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sumter333 My Suncast Hideaway Hose Reel Is A-OK!
My old wall mount hose reel had seen its better days so I junked it. My old 50 ft. water hose also had a leak near the end so I headed down to the Home Depot mainly for a hose. Along with the new medium duty 50 ft green hose I purchased, I decided to get a Suncast 100 ft. Hose Reel too. This is a very nice low-profile hose reel that fits my purpose very well. I wrapped teflon tape around all fittings and used a channellock plier to tighten and there is absolutely no leaking. I repaired my leaky hose by cutting off at the hole and installing a new female repair fitting, from HD, with teflon tape and two clamps. I now found myself watering the yard with 90 feet of hose! After testing for leaks again and installing the Suncast's ground stakes, I reeled all the hose in very easily by turning the crank and evenly guiding the hose with my hand onto the reel. I believe that if you are tired of finicky wall mount hose cranks that you will enjoy your Suncast 100 ft. Hideaway Hose Reel. Get one today!

Pleased with the purchase, took me a little while to install the hose, but it's so convenient.

I like the idea of the hose being hidden from view but it is difficult to turn the hose properly inside the small amount of space left to turn. The vinyl quality is not as strong as I prefer. As you move the hose case that the hose is in, the corners tend to give a little because of its lack of having a harder plastic material.

If you are looking for an economical hose reel this one is ok. It is kind of flimsy and could use a larger area to step on when rolling the hose in. I might opt for a more sturdy one in the future but this does get the job done.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by steve One of the poorest made products I've ever seen
Cheap plastic that bends. The space between the reel ad the case is too large - your hose will get caught there and it's a pain to get ti out. This is literally the worst product I have ever purchased from Homey. Don;t be tempted by the price - it is not worth half of what they charge. JUNK, JUNK, JUNK

This product claims it can handle a 100 foot hose....it can barely fit a 50 footer.
Box not high enough and drum ends not high enough to secure hose when winding...plus no internal guide for hose to line up properly.
Sorry I bought it...got scarred up trying to
untangle hose..so I guess I will have to eat it.

Reel can hardly hold a 50 ft hose. The sides of the reel are too low and too far away from the outer walls to stop the hose from falling off the reel and getting jammed inside the case. First time I loaded the hose I carefully rolled into onto the reel and it rubbed against the top of the case. When I tried to pull out some hose it immediately fell off the side of the reel and jammed. Had to lay the reel on its side and loop the hose back onto the reel and pull it out very slowly. This product is junk. I have used a lot of Suncast products over the years and always found them to be well made and user friendly. I am surprised by the poor design of this product.
