With spring at hand and summer just around the corner, soon you’ll be hauling the hose all all over the yard. In my experience, the worst part of dealing with a garden hose is reeling it back in, so this No-Crank hose reel definitely appeals to me. After you’re done with the hose, just pull the lever on the No-Crank — and a motor powered by house water pressure reels it back in.
The No-Crank Classic 100 features a handle on top for portability, or you can mount it to the floor for a more permanent setup. It holds 100 feet of 5/8″ hose and 150 feet of 1/2″. The three-piston “hydro-pro” motor does all the work, converting water pressure into its winding action. As the hose is reeled in, a reciprocating guide neatly arranges it while also wiping off debris.
Street pricing on the Classic 100 is about $70. No-Crank also offers several other models with different features and capacities — check their site for more details.
