Rapid Reel of the USA, has released a new premium quality hose reel for use with high pressure water blasters and drain cleaners. The reel is being distributed in Australia by BAR Group, who are one stop shop for all of high pressure needs.
Called the Rapid Reel 5516, the reel offers nine exclusive features. The Rapid Reel 5516 patented design allows the reel to be attached, or detached, from a wall or pressure washer frame in just seconds. The Rapid Reel 5516 also delivers a full 360º pivoting action, keeping the reel in constant alignment with the hose. The reel will store up to 65 metres of 3/8" high pressure hose, and up to 130 metres of 1/4" hose.
Rapid Reel is a manufacturer of premium hose reels. The 5516 reel, like all Rapid Reels, is rated to 5000 Psi, and has a number of great features including a swivel, designed specifically for pressure washer applications. The 5516 reel is chemical resistant, and manufactured from stainless steel and brass.
The swivel is specially designed to have an extended life expectancy and is constructed in full brass. The reel also incorporates a unique hose loop and clamp design that protects the swivel, hose and fitting from hard pulls.
The circular drum provides superior crush resistance as well as a smooth surface for the hose to lie in. There are no cut outs, sharp edges or bends to damage the hose.
An integrated reel lock is built into the machine. The reel lock keeps the reel from unwinding while not in use. It operates with a simple pull and turn motion through a stainless steel pin incorporated in the hub design.
