Hand-Crank Hose Reels

REELCRAFT has introduced the Series CH37000 heavy-duty hand-crank hose reels, designed for applications requiring longer lengths of one-inch inner-diameter hose. The design of the reels helps to eliminate possible bearing misalignment due to heavy vibration in mobile applications by using a static oil light bearing. The one-inch solid main shaft connects to the spindle to form a rigid connection from side to side. The slotted spool provides a smooth transition for the hose. The new reel design is also available in electric motor-driven models (EH37000) and bevel-crank models (BH37000).
