HD78065 OMP – 1/2 in. x 65 ft. Heavy Duty Mobile Base Hose Reel
Reelcraft’s Series HD70000 hose reels incorporate a heavy-duty base design, all-steel construction and a baked-on powder coat finish to produce a rugged, corrosion-resistant product. A newly redesigned latching mechanism provides longer service life for the latch components. The one-piece guide roller design and stainless steel pins offer greater strength and easier serviceability. The high quality, die-cast aluminum hub, and two sealed ball bearings produce a smoother spool rotation and easier operation.
- Compact design – Reels are 25% smaller than our heavy-duty Series 80000 reels.
- Guide rollers – The one-piece design and stainless steel pins offer greater strength and easier serviceability.
- Ease of operation – The high quality, die-cast aluminum hub, and two sealed ball bearings produce a smoother spool rotation and easier operation.
- Made in the USA

Literature and Service Manual
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.
