Who knew? All these years, I never had any idea Benjamin Moore made hose reels.

Something to keep in mind when using hose reels of say 50' and longer in hose lengths, pressure drop.
I rebuild larger air tools, 3/4" and bigger impacts, horizontal grinders of 3hp or 4hp. The air hose is 3/4" ID, which makes it unhandy to drag very far, but the tools get full flow. A 4hp air motor needs 60 scfm at 90 psi, and that will not happen with small ID air hose, nor with a long length of hose.

Good eye there, LW. My using the aluminum toboggan for a hanging shelf was going to be for one summer only... a couple of decades ago.
