Hand-Crank Hose Reels

Hand-Crank Hose Reels

Posted on Dec 13, 2016
hand crank reelWith the invention of hose reels, industrial manufacturers now create different types of hose reels that have unique mechanisms in order to cater to the endless applications requiring hose maintenance and safety. Hose reels differ in terms of product specifications and rewind methods. Hand-crank, otherwise known as manual rewind, reels are ideal for applications requiring shorter lengths of hose where no power source is available. Hand-crank hose reels are also known to be among the most economical of the three major types (spring driven, hand-crank, and motor-driven) of reeling devices.

Hand-crank hose reels use a crank handle attached to the barrel of the reel; a simple turn of the handle causes the barrel to simultaneously turn. It is important to keep in mind that attempting to place a heavy and lengthy hose on a hand-crank hose reel may become too physically intensive. Heavy duty hoses are better suited for motor and spring driven retraction methods.
