    Comments about Ames Reel Easy Hose Caddy:

    The heyneedle.com's web site states the hose real has a "Limited lifetime warranty". The product information instructions state it only has a "2 year warranty". I my option, the grade of plastic resin that this unit is made with is not of a quality that would last more than a 3 to 4 years being outside in the sun.
    The instructions read, "The key holes are also made so that the hose reel can be mounted with the leader hose facing either direction". This gives the impression the unit can be reversible in the mounting but that puts the top "notched utility tray" at the bottom and thus becomes unusable. The unit is not user design to swap the top and bottom rails (but can be done with a little force to make the plastic snaps to open like it did) nor the hand crank and the hose supply ends are not reversible. So the unit leader hose if facing either direction if you not concern of not using the top notched utility tray.
    The very cheap supply hoes was not usable because the hose bib leak at the metal joint. Even after change the thin gasket to a thicker one, it still leaked. I had to sacrifice short garden hose I had and cut it to use with the real. Even the hose clamp that was included stripped out while tighten the clamp securely. I had to use my own clamp.
    And lastly, the plastic piping inside the center real leaked badly. Had to take apart half of the center real (more plastic clips to figure out how to open) to able to reach a screw cap on the supply piping that was loose. I just can figure out why the supply pipe was design with a useable "tee" pipe with a screw cap.
    I would not recommend buying as is. This unit needs a redesign.

      Comments about Ames Reel Easy Hose Caddy:

      A replacement for the one I had for 10 years. Only measures 25 inches high with handle raised. Measures about 21 inches high with handle down. I replaced the outside water hose to the faucet with a hot water hose after 3 years. The reel held up for another 7 years with daily use of about 10 minutes.
