The CPSC announced a voluntary recall of the Rapid Reel portable garden-hose-reel carts and wagons.  Rapid Reel has received five reports of tires exploding while being inflated, resulting in lacerations to fingers, arms, and legs from flying pieces of plastic.  The tires in question have a white plastic rim and a steel ball bearing hub or a black plastic bearing hub.

If you own one of the affected units, don’t inflate the tires — you can contact Rapid Reel for free replacement tires.

    Sounds much like the recall on DeVilbiss products – branded as Porter Cable pressure washers and Porter Cable compressors – plus a few other brands. The fix was to get rid of the plastic rims in favor of steel.
