HD79005 OLB – 3/4 in. x 50 ft. Heavy Duty Hose Reel
Reelcraft offers a chemical resistant fluid path as an option for our most popular models series. The reels include a Stainless Steel path and swivel (components in contact with the fluid) that provide maximum protection for corrosive fluid applications. Standard swivel seals include Buna, though EPR and FKM are also available depending on compatibility requirements (consult Technical Services for assistance). Reels are typically shipped without hose as fluid compatibility must be confirmed.
- Reinforced steel – The steel guide arm and base are stamped with ribs and gussets to insure maximum strength and lightest possible weight.
- Ease of operation – The high quality, die-cast aluminum hub, and two sealed ball bearings produce a smoother spool rotation and easier operation.
- Quality finish and corrosion resistant – Individually powder coated components offer the maximum protection from premature corrosion.
- Versatility – The guide arm adjusts to seven different positions for versatile mounting and a wide range of applications.
*Reel is shipped in the top wind position. The reel image is shown in the side wind position.

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.
|Spring Number||Wraps Required|
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.
