Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hose winders These units are fabulous. Reliable in that they work every time. no false starts and repeats to get your hose rewound. only suggestion i have is develop a few more colors. i would like to order two more but the colors are not just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Customer Service I purchased 2 of these hoses they are the best thing ever as I tried several other so called self wind hoses and wasted my money. The staff at Frontgate are wonderful and I had a small issue with one of the hoses which they took care of promptly and I am enjoying my garden and watering it very day as I enjoy using the hose. I give it 10 Stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I adore this! This hose reel is perfection, plain and simple. I can't believe all the years I wasted time struggling with a hose. It is plenty long and seems well-made. Love it to pieces!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!! I have bought and used several hose/reel products over several years and this is by far the best! It is easily installed, looks good and is tough and functional. If you leave it outside, wipe it off occasionally with a plastic preservative and it will look new for a long time. I also suggest using such product on the hose as well. This product winds in the hose every time without a struggle. I suggest shutting off the water and opening the nozzle to release the pressure before winding up. I have also purchased three more of these for gifts! I don't think you'll be sorry you bought this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheap but expensive The first three days I used it I liked it very much although the hose is skinny and the entire thing is plastic. The water pressure is great and easy to assemble. I didn't like the birght colors since it is used in a woodland garden but I ordered the pole (which has not arrived) so i could mount it under the deck so I would not have to see it. On day four of use, the hose came out of it's fitting teeth and I cannot get it back in. I was just watering and the water pressure i guess made it pop out. For a hose of this price, you would expect more. I'm very irritated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from water with ease I have had my retractable hose for 5 years now. i love it- it rewinds so easily- just a little tug. I also pulls out easily and stays locked in place. If you need more you do not have to rewind and start again-just give it another tug and unwind what you need. My hose is finally giving up the ghost-the hose is cracking near the rewind stopper. I taped it up but I figured I should buy a new one before they change the design or discontinue it. I love the design and the durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Birthday Gift Received this as a birthday gift 3 years ago. It is one of the best creations ever. Before I got the automatic reel, I left hose strung out all over the patio because I was too lazy to properly wind it up. Now, I just give a little tug and the whole hose hurries itself back into the casing and voila, no more messy patio! Getting ready to move into a new home and am going to purchase 5 more of them. Excellent quality product!!

What exactly is the difference between this retractable hose (82' Automatic Hose Reel) and the Vector Retractable Hose Reel- besides the hose length?

From the online image, these two products look almost identical - except for color and hose length. They both use a 1/2" hose, right? What functionality or benefits makes the shorter hose version (82') at a higher cost point? I am missing that in the product descriptions. I had the Vector version in a past residence, went online to re-order for my new house and saw this 82' version and couldn't figure out the benefits to make me choose the apparent upgraded version. Thank you for any clarification you can provide to help me in my decision.

Thank you for your interest in the 82' Automatic Retractable Hose Reel. This item is very similar to our Vector Retractable Hose Reel (144861); however, the Vector does have a longer hose but a slightly shorter leader hose. Also the Vector hose reel is exclusively for Frontgate.
