Default Hose Reel

Have 150 feet of 2" discharge hose that I only use once a year but still got tried of unrolling and rolling it back up so made this simple hose reel. 7" piece of pipe and welded an plate on one end with a 1" shaft in the center, put a slice thru the pipe to so the quick coupler could go into the pipe to allow the hose to lay flat on the pipe. Some 3/8ths rod to make the sides on the reel and 1" sq tube for the stand. a brass bushing pressed into a another pipe to allow the reel to turn.

Nice job.

Did you roll the outside rings yourself, or were they "found parts"?

I could use about four of them. The only problem would be transporting from job to job.

Burnham, Good labor saver there and a real nice job.

22-W,If you have a lot of hoses, this might help. One of the guys at the power plant where I worked the last 5 years before retirement had worked for the fire department at one time. He built us a hose coiler that was just a disc with a bearing at about a 45 degree slope. Instead of a pipe in the middle it had a pair of 1 x 1 box tubes about 3 inches long and a 1/2 inch apart at 90 degrees to the disc and a square bar crank that slid into either of the tubes. Just put the hose between the box tubes with the coupling right up close and crank the disc. The hose would wind up around the coupling. When the hose was wound up we would just put a wire around it, pull the crank out of the way toss the coiled hose on a pallet and do another one. One guy could coil up half a dozen hoses in just a few minutes. Build one out of aluminum and it would be pretty portable.

Found a picture on Google of one sorta like it, but ours didn't have a stand and didn't cost 1100.00

Looks like a good rig Fabber. Thanks for the idea.
