The 75' hose is great, that 25' additional length comes in handy!
The hose on the reel I replaced with the Legacy model always wanted to bunch up when retracting into it. Thanks to the wonderful layering mechanism in the Legacy reel, it doesn't suffer from that problem. The hose retracts neatly and evenly every time!
I found the 3' lead-in hose to be adequate, as my garage is hard-plumbed and connecting it to the air line was a breeze, and the reel also comes with a handy wall mount bracket allowing me to reposition and secure it at different angles if needed.
I would recommend this reel to anyone looking for reasonably priced, convenient, air hose storage.
More details. I have completely given up on the units sold at Home Depot and Lowes, having had every single one break within months--and no satisfying response from the manufacturer. For years I used a Harbor Freight retractable air hose reel for my garden, but, because it is exposed, the sun would damage the hose and eventually cause breaks. So when I saw this larger hose and its cover, I decided to try it despite its cost. My water pressure is about 100psi. I installed a cut off valve feeding the unit, but sometimes forget it if the nozzle itself has a cut-off valve. This proved to be disastrous with nozzle malfunctions if it remained pressurized too long in the hot sun. The nozzle unit at first swivels nicely, but within two weeks, the nozzle shot off causing a huge water leak. It plugged back in and seemed solid, but made me nervous. Over the year, it fired off twice more, so I just cut it off and used a barbed fitting with a hose clamp. Still shot off.Read more ›
The hose reel is a little stiff at first; both the reel itself but also the hose. I put some lube on it (the kind electricians use) and it works great with no decay of any parts. The outer case is (I think) ABS plastic, and has withstood one 4 foot drop already (clumsy, not mount failure). The mount parts seem flimsy but do the trick. The hose shipped with the reel is just so-so quality, but more than sufficient for my needs. No rust on any metal parts so far, and it now gets use multiple times per week in summer and winter.
I too have a nice 100% duty cycle air compressor that eventually got buried except for when I needed to buff glass, paint, air-up sports balls, or put air in tires. It was a balance between nuisance and need. While browsing, I saw product, and bought one. I ended up mounting it almost to the front part of the garage, between the two doors. WHY? so I can use it outside to blow grass off the driveway, air-dry my vehicles after a wash, and other sundry tasks. But lets start at the beginning.
1. Find an easy access site for your air. Make note you'll be running air-hose *from* that spot, up (or behind) your wall, along (or behind) your ceiling, *to* your mount spot.
2. Take a string and measure the run from your compressor to the anchor-point for your FIXED air-hose. (meaning, attached to or behind garage wall. Picture the compressor. Picture the wall with a female fitting. Hang a string between the two. Then put a loop or two in it for slack. Write this measured distance down.

We have had three of these at our shop, and none have lasted much over a year. The hose is HORRIBLE to use in cold weather. We will switch brands and not buy Legacy any longer.Published 10 months ago by MJLEE
