Easy, Quick and Practical Mobility
The very popular model 1043 two-wheel cart garden hose reel offers the benefit of being able to easily move your water hose reel from one location to another. This mobility is convenient for numerous applications, including those who would like to maneuver the hose reel between two or more faucets around the yard, acreage, or commercial property. It also enables you to move the hose reel indoors for easy storage. This is useful for homeowners who do not want to decorate their house with a hose reel and want to wheel it out only when they need to use it. Moving the portable hose reel indoors is also ideal for anti-theft and safekeeping. If the indoor storage area is heated, then wheeling the cart hose reel into this space is a quick and easy method of protecting your hose and reel from winter freeze damage.
The 25-inch wide wheelbase on the ELEY 2-wheel cart garden hose reel rides on flat-free, 10-inch turf tires and offers excellent no-tip stability. Constructed from rugged and rust-proof aluminum, this gardening hose reel cart will hold up to 125-feet of 5/8-inch garden hose (or 100-feet of 3/4-inch). If modified with the ELEY Extra-Capacity Kit, the hose reel's capacity increases to 200-feet of 5/8-inch water hose (or 170-feet of 3/4-inch). The entire drinking-water-safe plumbing of the model 1043 garden hose reel cart consists of just two-high quality components: a 6-1/2-foot polyurethane garden hose and our brass, aluminum, and copper swivel. The entire two-wheel cart is backed by our unparalleled 10-year No-Leak, No-Rust, No-Break warranty.

Our revolutionary cam-lever brake, along with a comfort-grip crank handle, an innovative hose strap, smooth-spin axle bushings, and grab-n-go push/pull handle bars, all combine to take the 'work' out of your watering and cleaning activities.

Common Questions - Hose Reel Cart
2 Wheels vs. 4 Wheels? Which is right for me?
Without question, this is the most asked question regarding this model. Read our 2-Wheel Cart vs 4-Wheel Wagon blog article for a detailed comparison.
I'm a tall person. Are there extensions available for the push-pull handles?
Sorry, at this time we don't offer any extensions for the push-pull handles.
Will it easily tip over?
Our portable wheeled hose reels are not easily tipped over. While the addition of the optional Quad-Wheel Kit does add a bit more stability, the primary factor in the reel tipping over is how tight you set the adjustable cam-lever brake. More information on the cam-lever brake can be viewed in the first 90 seconds of our User-Friendly Features video. Also, depending on which configuration you chose, these reels weigh 35 pounds or more and have a 2-foot wide by a 2-foot deep base. The center of gravity of the unit is designed to keep the cart upright.
Is assembly required?
Yes, however, don't let that scare you away. Quick and easy assembly was one of our R&D team's primary objectives when designing the durable ELEY hose reels. We provide an excellent assembly manual with the hose reel as well as a full step-by-step video demonstration of the assembly on this website. Please visit our Assembly Instructions - Two-Wheel Cart Hose Reel page if you'd like to preview the manual and video.
