Craftsman Hose Reel

So many people have had the same problem and only a few of us have probably not thrown out the silicone wipe! Add the silicone to the rubber hose and it gets pretty slick! So much so that it doesn't stick to itself causing the binding so many have experienced! I wiped mine down when I first got it and do it once or twice a year when it feels like it needs it.

As another reviewer stated, I also relieve the pressure from the system when I am done with it just to protect the hose. This also makes it easier to retract and store the hose on the reel.

The overall quality seems fair to good though an exceptional model would be made of steel and probably cost twice as much! Still, for the home shop (this is hung on a rafter above my '71 Mustang) this does a great job of getting out of my way when it's time to clean up!

Don't waste time or money

Before buying this reel I had read the reviews but decided to buy it anyway. Cosmetically it's a nice hose reel, but let's face it functionality is more important than looks. From the day I pulled this thing out of the box it has never wound the hose properly. With the real being located out of reach this wasn't something that I am willing to deal with so I took it back.

Hose Reel & Hose

The Craftsman Hose Reel& hose is an excellent garage organizer-
mount on your wall &the cord is not lying on your garage floor. Works excellent with the craftsman air compressor. !!

fine for a small garage

|

I've had this for years with no issues other than sometimes the last foot or so of the reel not retracting. I've mounted it shoulder level, so it's not a big deal to push it in by hand. I use this mainly for some light tools and filling tires. It's been great so far.

Sturdy Reel Hose

|

Great value for the price, been wanting to buy one to replace the old one I currently have. Really flexible and sturdy for being plastic. The hose is perfect length not too long and reel is not bulky like other ones I seen.

Broke just after warranty was up

|

This got occasional use in a workshed airing up tires and running air tools. Had it mounted to the wall above my compressor and when I gave it a tug to take out some hose, it came crashing down. The plastic mount broke. Had is just over two years which is just past the warranty coverage. Do yourself a favor and buy a steel reel.

Hose does not retract easily

|

Takes multiple tries to get hose fully retracted. Lubricating hose helps for a few uses then problem surfaces again. Otherwise a good product.

Looks Great, What a Let Down

|

Installation instructions were perfect. Packaging was perfect. Appearance was perfect. This was a Christmas gift. Unwrapped it, looked at it, got excited, installed it, ready to go, woohoo! Turned on the air and the sound of hissing air somewhere inside the unit was as disappointing as the look on my face. Good thing Sears gives full refunds. 15 years ago, I loved Craftsman. Seriously, what happened?

Nice reel!

|

This is a fantastic reel. Nice and smooth action. Hose pulls out all the way a retracts easily. Wall mount is nice and the enclosure keeps the hose dust free.

No more unruly hose on the ground.

|

It use to be that when I used the air compressor the hose would live on in a tangled mess on the ground where I'd trip on it until I spent the time to put it away. Now one quick put or a few deepening on how fast you want it to reel in and I'm done.

works perfectly

|

It comes with some silicone grease used to lube the hose so it retracts easier. I used this and some silicone spray as well. Not sure about the problems others have had, but I have no complaints. Can't beat it for 60 bucks. (I use this reel 5 days a week.)

Birthday Gift

|

I bought this for my husband. He likes the flexibility of the hose and it reels in well but the outer casing seems rather flimsy. I'm hoping it holds up well but he can be hard on his tools.
