Electric Hose Reel Conversion Kit
I have been cleaning Carpet for 24 years. Winding vacuum hoses up by hand job after job. A few months ago I decided to buy a electric vacuum hose reel. The price for a base model electric vacuum hose reel was about $1,300.00 and $ 200.00 to ship it to me. Then they told me I had to supply the wire, connectors, circuit breakers, zip ties and anything else that I needed to hook the reel up. Depending on where you buy this stuff it added up to another $100.00. So the total was about $1,600.00.
I already had a 45 inch diameter vacuum hose reel that I have been manually winding for years, so I decided to make it electric. I tried several different designs but they all had issues that I did not like. So I finally came up with what I consider the perfect conversion design. It only works on 45 inch diameter reels but a lot of us have them. It does not matter if it is a 150 , 200, 250 or a 300 foot reel , it only matters if it is 45 inch in diameter. Some reels out there are 35 inch and I am in the process of designing this but for now I am only offering the conversion kit for the 45 inch reel. If you need a 35 inch diameter reel conversion kit , let me know , the more interest that I find is out there, the faster I will be at putting one on the market.
So why is this so great !!!
- It winds the hose with no effort, saves your energy.
- It winds the hose at a nice pace, about 30 seconds per 100 feet
- It is easy to pull the hose out and it stops by itself when you stop pulling, no freewheeling
- You do not have to lock the reel anymore, in fact, just take the lock off
- It only takes a few hours to install and is easy, with really clear directions and pictures
- The most complete kit possible, most installations will not require any extra parts
- No Welding
- No greasing anything
- No maintenance, No brushes to wear out, Enclosed powerful motor
- Put the switch where it works for you , plenty of extra wire included
- Switch only winds when you put pressure on it , let up and it stops
Once you have an electric powered reel, you will never want to be without one!
