Customer Questions & Answers

Is this made with plastic connections or brass?

Asked by: Christina
Why have four people given a 'thumbs down' to the answer a Suncast staff member gave??? What he/she says is true- this from a 15 to 20 year user of the unit who just bought a new one because I broke the handle- and I take the blame for it as I was REALLY cranking it hard! AND when I got my new one, I can see they've improved the design anyway! Even with my abuse I NEVER had any problem with connections that simply tightening (and you tighten any hose connection just good and snug, not with 'Superman' strength) any connection in the entire time of owning the original. See the photos, I really did replace it with the same model in spite of breaking the handle!

Is the Smart Track hose guide fixed to the gears so that I do not have to manually move it as the hose is being wound?

Asked by: Linder
Not only is the guide 'smart', it also has a way to disengage it if for some reason the tracking doesn't match up correctly. We had our original for about 15 to 20 years so the plastics have held up well and it's in a location where it gets all the midday to late afternoon sun. I finally broke the handle off so will buy a new one. I tried one of the Liberty all-metal units but it's unless it's mounted on a wall (which I can't do- no room between the garage and front door) it's almost useless, very hard to reel in my hose without that one tipping and keeping all the hose on the reel was tough, I returned it- thanks Home Depot!) The perfect unit would be metal and be like this one but in the meantime, these have been the most useful to me. Now to avoid breaking the handle off, make sure you bring the hose closer to the unit so that you're not putting a lot of pressure on the handle as you wind it- I should have known better as I was winding some 150-200 feet of hose in with a lot of tension. Also, if you can avoid sun on it, I'm sure that will help but as mentioned, this unit is quite old and has held up well. In the photos you'll also notice that the crank is geared to allow it to be higher, wow did I appreciate that after trying the $75 Liberty unit on the ground! Plus the foot area allows you to stabilize it as you either crank in or pull out hose- very helpful. You'll also appreciate the enclosed cabinet- not only is the 'look' neater, you can use the lid to balance yourself as you reel in or out the hose- didn't realize how helpful that was until using an 'open' unit. This time I do think I'll go with the smaller unit with the swivel base to keep the crank out of the sun but I will miss the storage area of this one as it was nice to have extra gaskets, nozzles, gloves, etc in the top of the old one in the tray that sits in there. See the photos I've included.

How does one attach the main hose in/on this unit? Through the opening shown at the front?

I presently have an open type reel on wheels and it appears to be easier to attach the main hose on it.
Asked by: MaryGirl
No, this is easy. On the other side not shown in the photo is the attachment area for a 'leader hose'- you can see the inside area where it attaches in the photo. As with any unit like this, you may have to replace that hose but it's easy enough as long as you can get a short hose. An I've never really had an leaking problems with the connections. There is no issue attaching it as long as you leave it attached. If you plan on removing the hose and putting it back in, then this type of unit is not for you. Since I never needed to do that, this unit was great for me.

How can this hose reel be anchored?

Asked by: Zig
I have the old original version and with the unit on a driveway, there would be no way to anchor it. Use the step to keep it steady when reeling the hose in and bring the hose closer, in other words don't leave all 200 feet of hose laying straight out- or worse, winding through the yard as you try to reel it in- coil it closer to the unit and it is not a problem. The same with unwinding the hose- do it while standing next to the unit- unreel what you'll need with you foot on the rest and/or you hand on top of the unit (you'll appreciate an enclosed unit that has a lid to hold onto!)

225 ft. Smart Trak Hose Hideaway is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from (My photos update the design!) I just purchased our second Suncast 225 ft. Smart Trak Hose Hideaw... (My photos update the design!) I just purchased our second Suncast 225 ft. Smart Trak Hose Hideaway as I managed to break the handle on the original after some 15 to 20 years of ownership. I tried a different open reel thinking an all metal one would last longer but after trying it I realized I really missed the 'Smart Trak' system that helps guide the hose in AND the 'Hideaway' feature that makes for a much better look to the front of the house, plus I'm sure keeping the hose out of the sun helps lengthen hose life. I want to report two things about the broken handle. First, I was REALLY working the handle to rewind some two hundred feet of fairly heavy hose. And second, I'm VERY pleased to announce that they've already addressed the issue by making that connection better, at least it sure looks stronger. And remember, I'm already taking blame for breaking the handle on our old one which lasted a long time. Even with this one, I'll make the job of rewinding the hose easier by not trying to reel the hose in while it's twisted or wrapped around anything! It was late on a rainy night and I didn't take the time to make it easier on the handle- and myself! So, even with a broken handle on the first one I decided to go back realizing I had to blame myself (I didn't know they had improved the design when I ordered it- the photos on the Home Depot site haven't been updated yet). Why might you prefer this model or the more compact one that Home Depot also sells? First, the handle position on these is a little higher than on other models and the gear reduction helps a lot. Second, although 'Smart Trak' isn't perfect it beats anything else out there HANDS DOWN! The open reel system I tried (and thanks to Home Depot for an easy return on that one. It only took trying to load my hose on that one to badly miss the 'Smart Trak' system!) was a real pain to get it to track- it ran off the reel towards the end a couple of times. Second, you'll appreciate the 'Hideaway' feature not only for hiding the hose but it gives you a place to brace yourself while rewinding the hose. Think about it, at least in the open reel system I tried there was no where to hold the reel while rewinding and I didn't have any place to mount that one so it was almost impossible to wind 200 feet of hose on the thing! Second, without a 'smart' rewinding system the hose started going off the reel and it was a struggle to get it to wind anywhere near correctly- and I'm NOT a little guy at all! Finally, the storage area in the top is a great place to store those extra nozzles, gaskets, garden gloves, a pair of pliers, small garden tools- anything you could use around the hose without going back to your garage or shed to find them, didn't realize how much I'd miss that on the open reel system! My photos (click on the photos for information on each) will show the improved handle design and even without that (remember, my old one lasted many years before I abused it!) I'd highly recommend this unit. I've seen questions about the durability of the plastic gears- NO PROBLEM! You may have to help the 'Smart Trak' system every once in awhile but you can open the top and even slide the track's gearing system to fix a problem. It really is as perfect a hose reel system as you can find I believe.

The winding mechanism is smooth and works well and I really like the built-in storage tray. It's well built and being plastic I won't have to worry about it rusting, but unfortunately this also makes it light weight. It drags across our patio when unreeling a lot of hose. This wouldn't be a problem if there was a bottom to which you could add some ballast such as pavers or bags of gravel, but there is none. For the price you think Suncast could add one and maybe even mold in a water filled ballast tank, then I think it would be perfect.

I took it out of the box, hooked up the leader hose to the spigot and this unit, turned on the water, and was blown away by how much it leaked. Not a drip every few seconds, but like a faucet. The leaking was mostly from both ends o the leader hose. I even replaced the hose washers thinking this would help, but it still poured out. Oh, it the leaks are not enough, the lid sits slightly crooked. No one will notice the lid, since the unit will be shooting water everywhere.

Purchased item for use in lower Florida Keys and my initial purchase decision was to find a product that provided protection from the intense sun. Item is used with heavy commercial hose - 3/4" and this item was purchased as I believed the larger model size would be of a heavier build. The inner try is handy to store items not used and to provide protection from sun for additional items. The smart track guide is a nice feature, but I use my hand to help pull in the hose due to the size of hose I am using. If I used standard hose, I feel this feature would be fine on its own. I am very happy with this purchase and plan to purchase another unit. The sizing of the hose would not allow the maximum footage noted, but this unit seems to have no trouble with the larger diameter. I would recommend the purchase of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Bought this for our home. Wanted a black one but could not find one that would hold all the hose we have, 225 ft. This one works great. Liked it so much I got one for my dad for father's day cause the one he had was in bad shape. Love the compartment for keeping my garden trowel and hose sprayer. My husband is not the greatest at putting stuff up and I was forever looking for my trowel in the garage. Now I know right where it is. Only wish they made this in black.

Light effort for rolling up an entire length of hose. Tray on this model is large enough to hold many implements and small sprinklers. We have purchased a Suncast bin for storing seat cushions too. Great quality.

Probably handled roughly or not packed properly. Contacted the company directly and they sent a replacement lid. Seems a bit flimsy for the price but it's too soon to tell how it will hold up.
