Although I'm currently under 40+ inches of snow, I'm counting the days til Spring so I can use my new cart. First job on the list? Wash the car! Very easy to assemble. If you don't have a hand pump or compressor, it's easy to fill the tires at a gas station before assembly. I would've given 5 stars but the crank handle was bent during shipping but I was able to straighten it out so that it wouldn't hit the reel frame.

Very little to assemble. It is sturdy and makes it convenient to load up 200 feet of hose and move around from the front to the rear yards. The wheels are nice and air can be added when needed- not the type that go flat.
4 Wheel Hose Reel Cart
David from WA – Verified Buyer
This hose reel cart still smells REALLY bad we had to put it outside, away from the house, because it smells so bad. And the handle to turn the spool got bent to such an extent that you couldn't turn it without banging the sides of it. I got it in a vice and hammered it out, so it seems to be working fine now. Other than that, we haven't really put it to use yet, but it does seem strong and sturdy. It's not bad.

I did a lot of research and this particular hose reel had the best reviews everywhere. Best price was on Wayfair. I took me about 30 minutes to assemble. Hose winds easily. Cart moves around yard well. Good deal!

Purchased this hose cart to save my back in tugging the hose across the yard. It's a sturdy hose-holder. Had a bit of difficulty in putting it together, as the winding handle kept hitting the frame of the cart. We solved the issue by adding several washers to the inside of the handle to push it out just far enough to clear the frame.
Easy to Assemble / No Leaks
LG from Saint Louis, MO
I bought this reel for a 100' hose. Assembly was easy using the enclosed instructions. Before adding my hose to the reel, I used a hose cap where my hose would be attached and tested for leaks. None were found so I attached my hose and wound it up on the reel. I have to be careful when winding up the hose to prevent the bolt on the handle from hitting the frame as the crank is turned. I may try to see if the arm can be bent a little to give better clearance. Also as mentioned by others, the push handle is a bit wobbly. All in all, I would buy this again.
It was ok...
Martha Eisert from Harborcreek, PA – Verified Buyer
The tires went flat within days of getting. We had to work at getting proper size valve extensions, and then we had to purchase a special chuck for our compressor. Would have been nice if we didn't have to do all this fussing just to move it. Don't get me wrong. It's nice that it hold so much of our hose, but if you're not careful, you can unwind the handle on the front and be in a bad spot, as you'll need to almost stand on your head to reattach. It tightens easily enough if you catch this soon enough. Just be alert.
Liberty Garden 4 Wheel Hose Reel Cart Model 871
Elizabeth Godwin from Hillsborough, NC – Verified Buyer
The parts photos in the manual don't match how the parts are delivered which caused me to think I was getting something that had been refurbished. Parts G, H, I are put together ,and plumbers tape is used. I called the company to ask and was told these items were put together prior to shipping. The tires need to be inflated prior to attaching because the air gauge won't fit otherwise. The tires smell something horrendous; if you have chemical sensitivities you cannot buy this product. Even after 6 weeks of off gassing the tires still smell. Now that it's assembled I am pleased.

This seems to be a good quality product and there are no leaks so far. It was very easy to assemble and the only complaint that I have is the odd and awkward way the hose is attached to the wheel.
3.5 Stars Function good/ Durabilty not so good
Melissa from east berlin, PA – Verified Buyer
I purchased this last summer so it's not quite a year old. I had no issues assembling it. My husband noted looking at it brand new that it wouldn't hold up in the weather well. I love the function. But I can see that my husband was right, the bolts are rusting pretty good and other areas have chipped. It is still fully functional but I don't expect it to hold up for more than another year or two before it needs repair. Compared to what is out there otherwise for price, function, and durability I don't think it's too bad. But I would certainly be willing to pay a higher price for this design made with more durable quality materials.
