Model Overview Video
Watch this short 90 second video, which will give you a brief overview of our portable hose reels. Discover the unique features, versatility and applications for which these versatile models are best suited.
Extreme-Duty, No-Break Construction
Rugged, rustproof metal construction, along with stainless steel hardware and an over-sized 1-1/2" tubular frame, delivers years of commercial-duty durability and reliable performance. Coated with a high-grade, Spartan-bronze powder coat finish, this hose reel also features all-rubber, flat-free tires. Eley garden hose reels are backed by our industry-leading 10-Year No-Break and No-Rust warranty!
Drinking-Safe, No-Leak Plumbing
Forget about leaks. Included with every hose reel, the entire plumbing on all ELEY garden hose reels consists of just two ultra-durable and drinking-water-safe components; our brass & copper swivel (or rotary union) and our 6-1/2 foot polyurethane inlet hose, (also referred to as a jumper hose). Eley garden hose reels are backed by our industry-leading 10-Year No-Leak guarantee!
Practical, Easy-To-Use Functionality
We're not just the strongest hose reel on the market, we're also one of the most enjoyable to use. A number of features were specifically designed in to make your watering tasks easier and frustration-free. 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. Left-handed? No problem. Our proprietary design allows for either left or right-hand rewinding. For those that need them, there are also a couple optional kits which can increase the functionality of your hose reel. The Extra-Capacity Kit, will increase the hose capacity, while the Quad-Wheel Kit, comes with this model and converts the 2-wheel cart reel into this more stable 4-wheel wagon.

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. Also, depending on which configuration you chose, these reels weigh 35 pounds or more and have a 2-foot wide by 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 - Four-Wheel Wagon Hose Reel page if you'd like to preview the manual and video.
