  1. Hi Guys,

    I have been thinking over the last few weeks on how long we spend buy hand reeling the hose in in our vans and how much time we could save if there was an electric reel that did it for us. I have been in contact with many different companies and the cheapest I have been able to find is over £500 which is madness.

    Does anyone know of a company which does these? If not I am going to look at making and producing one.

    What happens when it gets caught on something? It wil burn the motor out or damage something.

    It doesnt take long to reel back in and it stops getting sore after you get use to it.

    Even if it does not have a motor what about an "assisted crank" reel. so you dont have to reel to hard or so many times.
