Manual Hose Reel

Find a Manual Hose Reel Suitable for Lightweight Applications

When a job calls for versatility and manoeuvrability, a manual hose reel is often the best choice as it allows for easy transport and quick winding by hand. However, not all manual reels are created alike, and some can leave you with less than optimal results. At Reel Tech, however, we’ve dedicated our efforts to ensure our clients always have access to equipment that is as durable as the job requires.

Common Mistakes People Make in Selecting a Hand Crank Reel

While selecting a reel with a hand crank may seem like a simple task, no matter what industry you’re in, that’s not always the case. In fact, it is all too easy to make some simple mistakes along the way that complicate matters later. Avoid errors such as:

  • Relying on plastic construction. This may yield an overall lower weight, which is ideal for applications that involve a great deal of movement, but they are not nearly as strong as the alternative. Ultimately, plastic becomes brittle and breaks far more easily than steel or aluminium, which should be your preferred material.
  • Choosing a reel that does not properly align with your particular industry’s requirements. Whether you are fighting fires or working in heavy industry, don’t select a product that was not purposefully designed and built for your use.
  • Failing to consider how a reel offers additional protection to the cabling or hose. Look carefully at features to select hardware that can protect not only your staff but also your equipment itself.
  • Not specifying a geared hank crank reel to assist operators. Reel Tech can help you choose the appropriate reel for your operation.

Reel Tech’s products are ideally suited to avoiding these concerns, using all-metal construction built to relevant Australian standards.
