This chalk reel's line length of 150' has been fantastic for laying out a backyard landscape project that I'm working on. The longer line length allows me to get one long, straight line to define a retaining wall or pool edge. It's been much easier to use than lifting a shorter chalk line and trying to align it on those longer runs. The chalk line itself absorbs quite a bit of chalk. I did a test and repeated snapping the same small section of line to see how many snaps I could get before re-chalking. The first snap was a nice, wide easy-to-read line. The 2nd snap was okay. But by the 3rd snap the line had become too faint to be a good reference. I re-chalk after 2 snaps. The extra large size of the case allows it to hold a full bottle of chalk. The handle crank is geared so that it retracts really quickly and so far has not tangled like my smaller chalk reels can do. The line termination is a large metal circle which can fit around ground stakes or rebar so that's been very helpful. In fact, I used a 12" length of rebar if I needed a starting point in the ground. Simply drop the metal ring over the rebar after hammering the stake in the ground and you're set. Overall, a very handy and durable tool to have with you that can actually replace your smaller chalk reels as well. Great job Milwaukee!

When I saw Milwaukee came out with this 150 ft extra bold large-capacity chalk reel. I knew I had to have it. When I received the package that was delivered to me I couldn't wait to open the box. When I first saw the Milwaukee chalk reel I knew this was going to be a great addition to my tool Arsenal. When I open the box the chalk reel was wrapped with packing paper which protected the chalk reel from damage. After I pulled the chalk reel out of the box I noticed the reel had a large handle for big hands and for when you wear gloves. Milwaukee really did a great design on the handle. This chalk reel size is 11 in. H x 7 in. L x 3-3/4 in. W . Milwaukee integrated a planetary gear system that is 4 :1 gear ratio that is 4 times faster retraction and it's very fast which saves you time. What I liked the most was the capacity of this chalk reel it will hold 24 oz of chalk so that you don't have to stop your work to keep refilling the chalk reel up. When you need to put Chalk in the reel it has a tethered cap so you won't lose it and the cap is a 1/4 turn to open it and the large fill opening is a 1-3/4 inch hole. This chalk real has a high-strength extra bold braided chalk line so you can see the line much better this will be nice for the eyes. On the end of the braided line there is a 2-1/4 in. Holding ring. I wish they would have put an end hook instead of a ring on the end of the chalk line so it could be a one-man operation. Also on the right side of the housing of the chalk reel there is a retaining push in clip for the holding ring to keep the ring from getting caught on things when carrying and transporting it from job to job. Milwaukee added an awesome locking rewinding handle gear on the outside of the real so you can flip the rewinding handle over to one side and lock the chalk line so you can pull the chalk line tight to snap your line. I was wondering if I could still use my line level on the caulk reel being that the extra bold braided line was thicker then the standard chalk lines. So I tried it out and yes they will work on this Milwaukee 150 ft extra bold large-capacity chalk reel. The chalk reel weighs in at 1.2 lb and is made in China I really love this Milwaukee chalk reel it will come in handy for laying out framing, roofs, fences and cutting plywood and etc. Like I said I wish they would have put an end Hook on the end of the chalk line instead of the Ring, but it puts a nice bold line down on the material you want to mark. This is definitely the perfect chalk reel to own for contractors. 4 stars for this because there is no end hook. I do recommend this Milwaukee 150 ft extra bold large-capacity chalk reel

Worked well for my needs, the large opening made it easy to fill it up with 8oz bottles. It is wide enough so I can put the entire opening in to fill it. See pic.Reeling the line was simple enough. Due to ita size this is something that I recommend for large project, where you would snap a lot of lines, otherwise the smaller ones would suit you best. Used it to snap a line end to end while siding a new house. Recommended for exterior lines. The plastic body protected it from drops and dings here and there.

Milwaukee 150 foot extra bold large capacity chalk reel. This thing is a beast, it's a large frame chalk reel that's ready to take on any job. It's shipped empty so you'll have to fill it with your favorite chalk, it can hold 24oz of chalk powder, Which should last a long time. The top of the handle to the bottom of where the string comes out is approximately 11" tall the width is about 7" and about 4 1/4" thick. This reel would be great to use for large construction jobs or when building a large deck or laying out basement walls. There are so many uses I can think of for this chalk reel. It's has 150' of 2mm braided line that leaves a clear easy to see bold line. It has a planetary gear system with a metal handle to reel the line back in with a 4 to 1 ratio which is faster than a standard reel. You can also flip the handle over to lock the reel. Which I think is a great feature. And because of the heavier line you can get multiple lines laid down on a single pull. The chalk fill cap has a tether attached to it so you won't ever drop it. The pull ring at the end of the string line is heavy duty however there is no hook on it to use it on an edge of a board so you have to use a nail or have someone hold the end. The reel has a limited lifetime warranty. It is very well made. It's another great tool from Milwaukee. I would definitely recommend this chalk reel to anyone that has a need for it.

Nice chalk reel for those big layout jobs. I had a small chalk line marker (50 ft) that marked a thin line, and while it was OK for small jobs it did not perform well when I was trying to put down a line on the ground, or trying to do long lines. I picked up this Milwaukee 150 ft chalk reel when my small reel broke and I am glad I did. Despite being big, it is very easy to handle; the extra bold line is easy to see and lasts longer than other lines I have snapped with my fine line reel (the line shown in the picture is still visible four days after snapping it). I have used this for a number of things, including putting lines on plywood for rough cuts. The retraction rate on this is also amazingly fast. The large fill hole for chalk is also nice and makes adding chalk must cleaner than I have experienced on other reels. The line is also replaceable, which I also like (although the line it comes with is so tough I don’t see the need arising). The reel is sturdy and should last for a long, long time.

If you need a large capacity chalk reel then this is the one. Heavy duty and large plastic body contains 150 ft of line and enough room to empty a whole bottle of chalk. Easy to open cap with a large opening makes filling it with chald very easy. One thing I would have liked to see is the handle for the reel fold flat when not in use. I have an old measuring tape that the handle flips into a holding clip to prevent it from spinning any more and keep it flat for better storage.

This chalk reel is large, much larger than the old one that I have been using for 25 years. The cord is much longer and heavier (thicker) than my old one. It takes more effort to reel it in after using it than my old one with the thin cotton line. I suppose that is because the cord is heavier. When snapped it leaves a thicker chalk line than the old style ones with the thinner cotton string. That hasn't been a problem. That thicker, stronger cord should allow it to be stretched tighter over a longer distance than my older one. That could be an advantage in some situations.
