    Thanks, got one. Had been eyeing this for awhile

  •  

    Bought one from Super heap for 15 bucks, I believe that was the cheapest. I haven't installed it yet so can't comment on the quality of that one, but for 23 bucks done know why anyone buys an expensive one

    •  

      I meant cheapest for this specific model but yeah :)

      but for 23 bucks done know why anyone buys an expensive one

      Because they want one that lasts more then a couple of years and works 100% of the time with a quality hose that doesn't link and decent fittings.

        I have been using one for about a year from Aldi, no issues whatsoever, plenty of people on here with no issues, YMMV

    I have had two for a few years and they are now having issue retracting. I will look at getting a different brand when i buy again

    What's the quality of the hose like?

    It looks pretty crappy in one of the pics with kinks in it…

    I've had multiple brands of these over the years and I've currently got UK-made Hoselock hoses and they are the best - although not cheap.

    actual hose does look pretty shonky..

    I've got a couple of these I've had for quite a few years, no "reel" complaints, good for a cheapie..

    The spring for the stop valve in the fitting cant be stainless, probably chromed, when I turn the water on a little bit of rusty water comes out at the start…

    One is in full sun, no shelter, the plastic started to fade after a few years so I threw a $1 can of cheap spray paint over it to act as sunscreen so the plastic doesn't end up brittle..

    (just ordered another one, ty OP)

    Anyone tried the warranty for any faulty ones?

    Gave + but the nearest store with stock near Brisbane is Caloundra (70 km away). :(

    I've got this but never bolted it up. How easy is it to bolt up to a wall?

      If you have to ask pay someone to do it especially if you can't Google it or find the numerous YouTube videos showing how.

        Well it appears I'm missing some of the mounting hardware as well as the instructions. Hence why I asked.

        Even though the item is more helpful than you :)

      Worth trying yourself. If you own a hammer drill (or your neighbour does) then that's your biggest hurdle covered. Bunnings reps will advise on the right fixings for your application.

    I hated a 40 metre hose link. Expensive. Less than 2 1/2 years. Sun destroyed it.

    • +1 vote

      40m is rediculous unless you have a massive property and need for it. Even 30m is a pain in the ass. I have a 30m in storage and only used it once or twice. I think I use an 18m one which is perfect for most things. Doesn't quite reach the edge of my property but it never kinks and easy to manage.

        Why is it ridiculous? You don't have to use the full length of the hose everytime you use it. A 30m out the back covers pretty much everywhere I want to use it but a 40m could also be handy when I'm working under the pool deck etc.

        I suppose you think having a 6 or 8 cylinder is ridiculous….

        •  

          You'd want a top quality one though, something like hose link. This one looks destined to break before 12 months, even though it's not the 40m we're discussing.

          My first car was a 6
          The second had 8 cylinders, I'm not ready to swap to a battery scooter just yet.

            @Click_It: I had a v8 once and disconnected. 4 spark plugs as didn’t need a v8

            A V8 was ridiculous , was far better as a v4

    •  

      I'm going to assume you have never had to wash your boat motor from the hose in your back yard. Good luck with 18 metres.

      However it was about a quality one dying writhing few years. Would expect 5 yrs plus on them. And that's a big nope…

    I've got a fancy hose head with lots of different spray functions. Anyone know if you can add your own fittings to these reels?

  •  

    I have one of these, picked it up for $26, very happy for the price. It won’t compete with a more expensive unit but the value proposition is excellent.

  •  

    anyone have measurement of the hose reel?
    I'm after a small one for a unit.

  •  

    So I ordered this from my local store to Click and collect but they called me this morning to say they didn't have stock.
    No solution provided. I suggested they order one in from their other stores

    •  

      I was too slow off the mark to get mine in store yesterday. My local just ordered two in from another store for me, had to charge 7 bucks freight for both. Winning. But I guess I shouldn't count my chickens until they hatch.

    Word of caution, this is not the usual Machpro reel that Repco usually sells. The hose is skinnier and none of your normal accessories will fit. I was also unlucky to buy one with internal water leaks. Waste of $20.
