If the user’s 9 to 5 (or midnight - 8 a.m., for that matter) is in any field that employs work trucks, they surely have a sense of how limited space can be, and how vital it is to have the truck outfitted with dependable equipment. Whether the truck is used in the utilities, fueling or construction industry, it most likely needs to be equipped with a hose reel. Hannay Reels offers a variety of durable, dependable reels for a variety of work truck applications.
With everything from flexible mounting options to portability, there are a lot of reel features to choose from. Each of the company’s reel models are ideal for particular purposes and while steel construction is standard, the user can upgrade to stainless steel for outdoor applications. To make the purchasing process easier, the company has highlighted their top five work truck reels.
general industrial applications
Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the N700 hose reel is its narrow frame and compact mounting base. This design makes it ideal for use in limited-space work environments, like work trucks. Specially engineered to streamline pneumatic needs, lubrication, washdown, water transfer, and general industrial applications, the N700 Series hose reel can easily attach to trucks and overhead cranes, and has a variety of roller positions for different mounting options.
A spring rewind feature saves time and effort by simplifying pickup and storage, and a non-sparking ratchet assembly unit makes the N700 safer to operate in hazardous areas. The unit handles 1/4-inch through 1/2-inch I.D. hose, and pressures up to 10,000 psi.
automatic spring rewind
While this reel is considered lightweight, don’t underestimate its ability to handle long hose lengths. Available in either manual or power rewind, the reel can handle 3/8-inch through 5/8-inch I.D. hose and pressures up to 10,000 psi. The manual rewind reel comes complete with a cam-lock drag brake, spring actuated pin lock, and direct crank rewind. Or if they opt for the power rewind reel, they have their choice of a chain and sprocket drive powered by either an electric, hydraulic or air motor.
If grounding is the user’s need, they have the right reel to keep them safe and help them meet OSHA requirements. The SGCR grounding reel is equipped with an automatic spring rewind for ultimate convenience. Specifically, this model is independently tested to 43 kA for 30 cycles.
waste oil evacuation
Another spring rewind reel, the 800 model is especially ideal for fuel dispensing and waste oil evacuation. Built a bit larger and stronger to withstand heavy-duty applications, this reel features a roll-formed channel frame, as well as an array of different roller positioning options to best suit the user’s space. This unit can handle 3/4-inch or 1-inch I.D. hose and standard pressures up to 6,000 psi.
Its ability to perform in high-pressure situations is what makes the N600 ideal for hydraulic and spray applications. Designed with a small footprint and narrow frame, the N600 reel will fit compactly into a work truck. Like the 800 model, this unit features various different roller positioning options to cater to the user’s specific space and mounting requirements. The reel can handle pressures up to 10,000 psi, as well as 1/4-inch through 1/2-inch I.D. hose.
