G9400 OMPBW – 1 in. x 75 ft. Ultimate Duty Vehicle-Mount Hose Reel
Reelcraft's Series G9000 hose reels are designed to be compact and allow for longer lengths of larger diameter hose. The redesigned gooseneck can be removed from the reel for easier hose attachment. An external drive spring allows for convenient access to the spring components and improved servicing of the reel. The roller bearing inside of the pillow block produces a smoother spool rotation and easier operation.
- Substantial base frame – The full width frame has the greatest amount of mounting area and overall strength of reels within its class.
- Easy access to drive spring – An external drive spring allows for convenient access to the spring components and improved servicing of the reel.
- Robust latching mechanism – Latch and ratchet are made of heavy duty cast aluminum with substantial surface area to limit the opportunity for premature wear.
- Made in USA
NOTE: Reelcraft Series 9000 reels only ship LTL. Small parcel shipments are not available for this model.

How do I increase or reduce spring tension?
To increase spring tension:
Adding wraps of hose will increase spring tension. This can be accomplished by pulling out approximately 10 feet of hose, hand feed hose back up through roller bracket assembly* until loop is large enough to slip over spool. Add two or three wraps until desired tension is achieved. Do not exceed spring capacity.
To reduce spring tension:
This can be accomplished by removing wraps of hose from the reel spool. Remove wraps of hose from the sheave, one wrap at a time, until desired tension is obtained.
*For dual pedestal reels, you will have to remove the bumper and control handle then feed the end of the hose through the roller bracket assembly to add or remove wraps of hose from the reel drum.
Can my spring driven reel be made constant tension?
Most Reelcraft spring retractable reels can be made constant tension by removing the latching system. There are some models that may not have this capability.
Please refer to our online tech bulletins for more information on converting your reel to constant tension.
How do I install a new drive spring and set pre-turns?
We have several different types of spring driven reels. Each require a slightly different set of instructions. For “How-To” instructions on replacing a drive spring, please have your reel model or drive spring number available and consult customer service for instructions.
For how many wraps of “pre-tension” to put on the reel, please reference the chart below.

How many GPM’s will I get from my hose?
GPM = gallons per minute is a function of hose diameter, hose length, supply pressure and fluid going through the hose / reel. The most common fluids, air and water, can be seen in charted data. For hydraulic oils it is necessary to know the operating temperature, pressure and fluid viscosity.
Why will my hose reel or cord reel not retract?
Insufficient Spring Tension
Adjust the spring tension by adding wraps of hose. Pull out approximately 10 feet of hose. Hand feed the hose back up through roller bracket assembly until the loop is large enough to slip over sheave. Add two or three wraps until desired tension is achieved. Do not exceed spring capacity. Watch our “How to Adjust Spring Tension” videos on our Technical Videos page for more help.
Hose / cord reel mounted on ceiling above 16 feet
Must special order heavier gauge spring steel for drive spring to overcome weight of hose / cord extending from reel. Control handle weight must also be considered. Contact Reelcraft for further information.
Latch mechanism engaged with drive spring coiled to solid height
U-bolt hose clamps on sheave assembly not positioned correctly.
Hose / cord fully extended will not retract
Latch mechanism engaged with drive spring is coiled to solid height. U-bolt hose clamps on sheave assembly are not positioned correctly.
Product supply to reel, rigid, plumbed in
If a flexible connecting hose is not used between hose reel inlet and hard plumbing, you stand the chance of causing excessive bind to main shaft and hub bearings causing reel not to retract. This will also void the warranty.
Reel mounted on uneven surface
Bolting the reel down to an uneven surface will distort the side frames causing a bind on main support shafts and restricting smooth retraction of the hose.
Wrong guide arm position
If the guide arm is in side wind position for ceiling mounted reels, the hose / cord is bending at a 90° angle over roller bracket assembly. This can cause excessive loss of spring tension. Adjust the guide arm to coincide with how the hose / cord reel is actually mounted. U-bolt clamps may also need to be adjusted.
Broken main spring, broken spring arbor, corrosion on shaft and hub
Replace broken part with new. For corrosion: disassemble reel and remove corrosion, lubricate and reassemble.
Why is fluid or air leaking from my swivel?
O-ring worn out or wrong O-ring for material being handled
Replace O-rings with O-ring kit or replace with correct rings for material being handled.
Swivel may be loose or not enough pipe thread sealant on shaft threads
Remove swivel and check threads ensuring they are in good condition. Reapply thread sealant and install swivel onto reel ensuring good thread engagement.
Why will my reel not latch?
If your reel will not latch, it could mean the latch spring is broken or the latch pawl or latch plate is bent. The broken or bent part(s) will need to be replaced.
