ReelWorks Air Hose Reel with Hand Brake - 100-Ft. Hose Capacity
Well worth it
Hooked this up the other weekend. I had been either using a short hose by the compressor or unraveling and connecting multiple hoses for other jobs. I mounted this just above hip height on the wall. This unit works great; unrolling is a cinch and rewinding when done is smooth as silk. Having an affordable 100' length that is guaranteed to rewind makes this a great product.

Great little hose reel
I am very pleased by this hose reel, it is the perfect size and holds just the right amount of hose for home.garage use. It is very well designed, has good welds & everything operates smoothly. I have worked with power/air tools my whole life and I can honestly say this little reel is one of my best purchases. It makes for a nice tidy install that takes up little space but gives you quick access to as much hose as you will need around the garage.

Great Reel for the Money
Works great, easily holds 100' of 3/8 hose. Lock is a nice feature that keeps it from unspooling when the road gets rough...

No leaks. Sturdy and smooth. Accommodates up to 100ft 3/8 inch hose. When hose is messy easier to use non-spring loaded manual wind.

Easy to mount, easy to make your air connections. I purchased a 50 ft goodyear hose and it fit on here with room to spare. this hose reel is very smooth, no leaks. solid brass connections. this can be mounted for left or right hand operation. take care when rolling hose up on this reel. it not only looks nice and makes it easy to unwind. As with any reel, if you wind up sloppy, the hose will hit other parts of the reel and make it difficult to unwind the hose. i use these all over my shop and they are being used at my old job.

This hose reel is built well, very solid and works great. The air feeder line is part of the mounting tube, so it is very clean design as the feeder line does not get tangled while using it.

Northern Industrial Air Hose Reel with Hand Brake
This is a very good hose reel. Set up was easy. It is simple, inexpensive and works great even in cold weather. I set it up so I could move it around easily with my portable compressor.

This is an excellent and inexpensive tool for hanging and dispensing/rewinding air hose. I found that wrapping the hose around the handle causes the hose to come in contact with the input line into the compressor tank. This line gets hot, and will melt the hose. Not a problem with this reel.

Exactly what I needed
This is a very good reel. Very well made and solid. It is a very reasonable alternative to a recoiling hose reel and at a good price.
The reel works very well even on the coldest winter days. It took the 100 feet of 3/8 hose I had been wrapping around my compressor with ease. Winds up quickly.
The brake is a pin that locks in to a hole which keeps it from spinning. Simple but effective.
Installation was fairly simple. Finding a 1/4 inch union was the hardest part.
My only complaint is the lack of a guide. Winding up requires you to guide the hose carefully to get a clean wind. It will jam at the top layer if not wound up carefully. A 1/2 more clearance between the spool and the mount would resolve this. This is not a significant problem once you wind it up a few times.
Some sort of fairlead type guide would make it five stars.
