    I got myself a pure freedom hose and reel 100 metres of hose.it cost me just shy of 200 quid thing is when winding the hose back on to reel its bloody hard to get the whole lot back on without it going down the side and getting caught up it seems the sides of the reel should be bigger to contain all the hose does anyone else have this hose/reel and have this problem?

    Yeah - I often recommend pure freedom on here but that exact issue is probably the one thing that I can think of that winds me up a bit - scuse the pun. Think I've got the same hide reel as you.

    It gets caught up the sides when pulling it out for me (especially if I have to temporarily stop)

    For reeling in just keep it tight as poss.

    Lastly, I clearly remember my reel havin a frickin devil mind during the first 1-2 weeks after purchase but it settles down after awhile. It actually says that in the notes that come with it - but slightly different choice of words :)

    It's a pain as probably like yourself I'm in and out of the van all day long winding and unwinding the hose.

    I was going to get two of them but I'm glad I held back ,do you know of any other makes through experience what does good reels ?

    yeh its a **** !!!!
    take your eye off it and its slips over edge
    duncs tip off the night
    when it goes over the edge
    dont try and put it back on ree,
    lts easier to pull it off first gradually
    then wind back on

    when you have mastered your hose
    parking in best plc
    pulling your hose in easiest places
    watching for plants fluken roses worst
    gates
    hose kinking
    it just makes your graft easier

    Post which reel it is.Is it the solid sided one?
    Sometimes it gets that tangled, I have to disconnect it all and feed it through. How it can do this when wound in 1 direction. Makes me so cross.
    I use 8mm. Ill try 6mm next, if they are better
