    Hi just wondered if any one out there has got one and are they worth getting.

    Can you fit more work in using it? Or are they more hassle than they are worth?

    they are no hassle at all,ok the reel should be fixed in the van so maybe that may be an issue if you need to lock the van up but again there are the pulley options for that.
    i wouldn't ever go back to a manual reel again its not really a time saving investment but keeps your body more refreshed so you can work that bit quicker or feel more motivated to do more work,
    i guess the cost pans out at £2 a day for a year to own one so its not really that big an investment really and will more than pay for itself in that time

    I got a couple of the electric reels and would never go back to winding it in anymore
