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.

Please note, hose capacities may vary depending on hose brand & style. All reels come equipped with a 5/8" inlet hose and a full-flow 3/4" goose-neck swivel. To convert the hose reel to a complete 3/4" flow reel, simply upgrade the inlet hose to a 3/4" inlet hose (not sold by ELEY).

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 2-foot deep base. The center of gravity of the unit is designed to keep the cart upright.
