ReelWorks Hose Reel with Hose - 1/2in. x 50ft. Hose, Max 300 PSI
***Not worth the Money***
Hose Cracks developed after 6 Months even when oiled.
Hose blew out before 18 months...
Reel is flimsy...
Overall Not worth the price - Stay Away or you will be replacing these every year.

So far so good
Bought this reel maybe 8 months ago now. I use it maybe two times a month. I like it but there is one thing I wish I could change / adjust:
The way the holes are drilled in the mounting plate make it very difficult to hang it from the ceiling (or mount it to a wall) with beefy 2" lag bolts. The reel itself is in the way of either the lag bolt itself or your ratchet you're using to drive them in. I wish they made the mounting plate detachable so that you could securely affix that to whatever surface you are mounting it to, then using 2 - 4 bolts perpendicular to the ceiling mount, attach the reel to the mounting bracket.
I'm noticing now with infrequent, very light useage that the hose is beginning to stop winding up under its own strength. Almost like I have to go in and tighten the spring (as the manual shows how to do). If with very light useage I have to tighten the spring every 8 months, there is going to come a point where it won't go any tighter and the reel will be no good... I would hate to see what happens to this reel should it be used every day.

I inadvertently purchased the same unit in the 1/2 inch hose version. I received the unit and realized my mistake so returned it and re-ordered the 3/8 inch hose style. Received the smaller and only needed to purchase a short connector hose to go from the compressor to the reel. The mounting was easy and the unit performs as advertised.

Great Hose Reel
Purchased this hose reel , mounted and installed with no problems. It is made and operates like units that cost several times as much. For the price you just can't go wrong , and being 1/2 inch I have no problems at all operating all my all tools.

1/2 " air hose reels with hose
Excellent value. I have a total of 6 of them. Much better performance from large air tools or filling big tires.

We have two and get used heavily on a daily basis. They have not given us any trouble and work good.

I purchased this reel about six months ago and it is one of the best things that I have ever installed in my shop. No more hoses on the floor or getting run over by tractors or pickups. It was easy to install right out of the box and works great. I wish I would have bought it years ago.

I mounted mine on the ceiling in my shop and it keeps my shop floor free from clutter and me from tripping over air hose :) After I bought mine, I now see these in tire shops around town . Also, I bought this from Northern for half the price that a local store was asking.
