Beautify Your Surroundings

Your outdoor living space is just as important as the interior of your home. Why not accent your landscaping and outdoor furniture with garden accessories that are just as attractive? Finally, a metal hose reel that looks great! It hides your hose and blends in nicely with traditional cast aluminum furniture, wrought iron and even contemporary styles of patio furniture.

Ease-of-Use

The Ames NeverLeak 150-foot Metal Hose Reel comes with multiple features that make it easy to use. The Auto-Track feature moves side to side as you wind in order to guide the hose evenly onto the reel and keep your hand clean. The lid opens for easy access to load up to 150 feet of 5/8-inch standard hose (not included) and the soft cushion spin-grip is an added touch for comfort. The sturdy steel construction keeps the hose reel from shifting and tipping over as you move about your yard with your garden hose.

The NeverLeak Advantage

While other plastic and even steel units can become brittle and crack during winter, the NeverLeak Hose Reel's aluminum water system is strong enough to withstand temperature drops in cold winter weather and won't corrode. You'll no longer need to worry about replacing or patching up your hose reel each year because of leaking from weather damage.

Water systems can also leak from cross-threading, which can occur when your hose doesn't align perfectly with the water system as you attach it. The metal threads from the hose brass fitting can cut into the plastic threads of a traditional water system leaving small cracks, which will cause leaking. The NeverLeak water system will prevent this cross-threading from occurring.

I bought one of these about six months ago but mine is an Ame's brand but they are identical so now I'm not sure who actually makes these reels, Ame's or Jackson. Anyway it is a great product. I use Craftsman rubber garden hoses and have a 100 foot 5/8,s inch hose on the reel. Now these hoses are a lot heavier than the cheap plastic ones but they remain flexible year round which is why I like them. They are also guaranteed for life. The drawback of a heavy hose is that when I get 50 feet or so of hose pulled out the hose reel tips over which is very aggravating. The solution is to anchor it to the ground or make it a lot heavier. I chose the latter. I went to the lumber store and got a two foot square cement patio block and several caulking tubes of liquid nails construction adhesive. Just by chance I found some two foot square 3/4 inch pieces of marine grade plywood. I glued the plywood to the patio block and let it set for a day. I then fastened the hose reel to the plywood and that eliminated the tip over problem. The patio block weighs 75 lbs. so with the hose and reel its probably close to 100 lbs. I'm pretty sure it will stay put in a hurricane. When pulling the hose out of the reel it works very smoothly and winding the hose back up is just as smooth. The hose guide go's back and forth to keep the hose wrapped very evenly. The instructions say to lube the guide about once a month and also the hose connection to the faucet with some Vaseline petroleum jelly but I have some silicone grease and that is what I use. The hose connection is very easy to remove by sliding the hose clip down. I like that feature as it makes that much easier to maintain.Read more ›

After years of struggling with plastic hose reel carts, this is a breath of fresh air. It's sturdy, the winding mechanism is solid and true, and it's esthetically pleasing. No more jerking the hose from across the yard until the cart tips over (trying to unwind it) -- the hose never tangles, and the cart never tips over!

Most reviewers are so happy with this particular Ames hose reel and I was keen to get one, but hesitated at the price, specially bearing in mind the potential cost of returning it, if necessary. However, I was in my local 'big box' store (Lowe's) last night and saw they had this one priced at $99.99, about $20 less than anywhere else so, much as I love Amazon, I bit the bullet and bought one there and then. I posted this info in case there are others here doing their pre-purchase research. (Beware - Ames has a cheaper, plastic model too - it looks very similar but gets poor reviews.)

First impressions: Being metal it obviously weighs more and feels far more solidly built than any of the plastic reel boxes I've come across before. I think it's far more attractive than all the plastic ones I've seen as well. In fact the style and color of this reel echoes that of our furniture on the patio, which is a bonus since it will also be living out there.

I noted in the instructions it has a two year warranty which allows you to return it to the store you purchased it from if something goes wrong - another reason to buy locally, if possible. There's a short list of replacement part numbers included - The crank handle (2517101), its screw (2517102), and the leader hose (2517103). I hope that's not an indication that the one unhappy reviewer's broken handle wasn't a fluke... Their CS Dept tel # 1-800-393-1846, in case you need it sometime.

OK, that's all I can offer without trying the thing. Will return to offer a proper 'user' review of its function soon and will change the star rating if necessary then.

Mid July, 2011:
It's been a great success so far. It looks great in the corner of the patio.

First of all, although this hose reel costs 3 or 4 times more than the plastic ones, its 1000 times better. It stays put, its almost entirely metal, it works smoothly and does not leak at all. There are a few things you should know, however. Although all the hose fittings are metal, the point at which the hose attaches to the reel is a sharp right angle, similar to what's on the plastic units. This shouldn't be a big deal, except that the guide that tracks back and forth, making sure the hose winds evenly, doesn't keep the hose to the right of this fitting. The result is that its possible for the hose to get caught between the right angle fitting and the left side of the reel. So, when I wind the hose I still try to guide it to the right, by hand. Item #2 is that the whole thing is driven by a belt. It looks to be quite strong but if it goes, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to replace it. Lastly, while the reel is very smooth, it does take some effort to crank. And as with virtually everything, its made in China.

On the plus side, the housing is powder-coated metal, the reel is metal, the hose fittings, internal & external are metal, the crank is metal. The only plastic is the hose threading mechanism. I called the company to ask about replacing the belt and--are you ready for this--they said, if I ever need one, they will send it free of charge.
