AUSTRALIAN Pump Industries has released Viper Mini Reel, a portable hose reel that weighs 14kg and is very compact. The reel unit becomes a self-contained control centre for difficult access drain cleaning and water blasting chores.
It can carry 60m of lightweight R8 quarter-inch high pressure hose and can be operated at up to 120m from the host machine. The reel and hose assembly can operate with any high-pressure water blaster rated up to 5000 psi.
It comes on a stainless steel carry frame that makes it easy to move around. The hose assemblies are supplied with quick couplers quickly detaching accessories including guns, flat surface cleaners, high pressure turbos and drain cleaning heads.
The machine is also fitted with its own control valve that enables the operator to shut off the machine at the reel. An accessory mounting bracket for the safe and efficient storage of drain cleaning accessories is also incorporated in the frame.
An integrated pressure gauge, rated to 6000 psi, is fitted to enable the operator to monitor pressure without having access to the host machine.
