Roughneck Hose Reel Cart - Holds 400ft. x 5/8in. Hose
Have a nice assortment of nuts and bolts ready
The assembly instructions were clearly missing some steps. If I had followed them to a "T", I would never have gotten the thing together. Some fasteners were missing, and some pieces shown pre-assembled were not, and the associated fasteners for those pieces were missing as well. The basket had some non-functional dents from rough handling.
Having said that, and after donating my own ingenuity and some nuts and bolts from my own supply, I was able to get the thing together and it works as advertised. Having a metal and brass hose caddy on real rubber wheels certainly beats the plastic thing it replaced.

Great Hose Reel
Well built and sturdy hose reel. The best feature is the flat free tires, you never have to worry about them. I have a pneumatic tire hose reel cart and the tires are always flat, just replacing the tires on that cart with flat frees would cost 75% of this carts cost. Great deal and well worth the money.

My First Disappointment With Northern Tool
Having made 10 or more purchases from Northern. I was disappointed with the power coated hose reel cart I purchased from them. I have owned several other cheaper priced brands of reels and have junked them because of rust and leaking problems. The one from Northern has been outside for about three weeks and the powered coating is rusting already. I use it almost daily and do not put back in the garage. The construction of the reel appears to be very good. It pushes easily and the reeling in of the hose is excellent. But the way this paint is looking, it will look just like the old one in about a year.

Great product but smelly
Reel works great, sturdy, easy to follow directions.
Packed well, but reeks of moth balls, reel has been outside now for close to a week, and still smells strong oder. I'm sure it will go away eventually, but moth balls?

Hose Reel Cart
This cart is left outside and within a few days it started to rust. Cannot understand how a product meant for water can be made with a type of metal that rusts.

I had been looking for a sturdy hose reel that would hold up to at least 150-200 ft. of hose and have found it with this product.
Fast shipping, good price for a great product!

Rough neek Hose reel
Very good product. I water my garden and this reel allows me to pull my hose from a distance without tipping over. The reel ifs well made and I am very satisfied with the performance. The solid wheels is very convenent and I see not reason why this reel will not give years of trouble free service. If you are looking for a reel that will perform well and have a long life this is the reel!

This hose reel seems well-built!
We like big, heavy rubber hoses, which are killers to haul around our large property. Given the fact that we're not exactly young and strong anymore, a hose reel was a necessity. Metal construction was a must when we went on our search for the reel that would meet our needs. So far, this one is working very well. In spite of a damaged box resulting in a return and a subsequent replacement which took extra time, we're well satisfied with both the product and the services provided.
