Levelwind retractable garden hose reel
Dave from Livermore, CA – Verified Buyer
Very good quality.Made in the USA, I LIKE THE 58THS SIZE though it is a bit harder to pull out of the winder compared to the 12 inch hose winder I replaced.
Totally satisfied in Michigan

I needed a long lasting quality hose reel for our detail shop that uses a hose reel all day long 6 days a week. Although we just got this, I can tell it is durable enough to last. Thanks again, I'll be back. Don Hawkins Hawkins motor sales

Wow !! This is great, and to think, MADE IN THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA<<
Nice unit, cheap hose.
J Keil from Burlington, Vermont – Verified Buyer
This is a decent unit, and I don't regret buying it. The levelwind feature works great. I will probably replace the hose it came with though, since a nice high quality hose does not cost all that much. The hose that came with it is the lowest quality garden hose I have ever seen with kinks and flat spots in it even though it is brand new. Perhaps they will pop out with pressure, but a nice rubber hose would not have kinks in it. I think the reel is worth the money so I don't mind the poor hose. [...]
Doesn't retract well, I have to help it.
SC427Cobra from Morton, IL – Verified Buyer
I bought this product based on the Legacy air hose I also purchased several years ago. I love the retractable air hose but this Legacy retractable water hose just doesn't do the trick. I think if I were to have bought the one with the 1/2" hose in it would have worked much better. By the time the 5/8" hose is about half way in I have to help it onto the reel. It also appears the reel just is too small for this much hose of this diameter. All this still happens after I read the instructions and adjusted the max. tention on the reel. If you are going to buy a Legacy reel I would opt. for the 1/2" hose size maybe the reel can handle the weight and amount of hose it is trying to reel up. I use this in my garage to wash my cars and thought it was the ticket.

Hose doesn't retract all the way. The hose binds inside the spool before the hose is retracted. Very weak return spring. You have to practically push the hose to get it back in. Tried to save a little money but doesn't seem to be the answer.

Just an average user who needs to water their plants, patio, etc., off. It turns and twists easily to move around as I move around. Love it!

overall it seen to be a good product
Form and Function
Corvetteboy from Akron, Ohio – Verified Buyer
Excellent construction, looks nice, and functionally performs very well. It can rotate on its wall mount, and the hose can be pulled out with one hand. Mounts nicely to the wall for a clean/professional appearance. Yet easily dismounts for portable use. I have a no-compromise garage and this fits the bill perfectly. You get a lot for what you pay. Beats any store or hardware store available hose real. Only draw backs are that no hardware is included to wall mount (screws, anchors, etc.), the retracting mechnism is a bit slow/non-existent sometimes, mainly when the house doesnt wind and lay nicely, and the hose isnt the highest quality and kinks easily (thin wall, flimsy).
A good example of a Quality USA product
Chic from West Newton Pa. – Verified Buyer
It looks and feels like QUALITY product which I can not say for like products, made in China. But then again, I do go out of my way for products made in the U.S.A.
