Love The Reel; Hate The Hose
This is a great reel that really seems to control the hose well. The wrapping guide works very well, and the adjustable hose stop is nice. The hose it comes with is cheap and stiff. Fifteem minutes after getting mine home I tore it apart and replaced the cheap hose with 75' of good Craftsman rubber hose, and now I'm quite happy. I wish I could do the same with the 9ft lead in hose (who needs 9ft?), but I think I'm stuck there. At least I don't have to navigate that one around a cold garage. This is one of those tools that you don't have to have, but you will wonder how you ever got a long without it (remember your first retractable trouble light?!?). Buy one now, and the $20 savings is like getting the cheap hose for free. That way you won't feel so bad about cutting it off of a brand new reel.

3/8" X 50ft. Air Hose Reel
I was very disappointed in this air hose reel. The hose is made of the cheap pvc material, which in Minnesota, when it gets cold, the reel does not work. the hose gets stiff. For the amount money you pay for this reel, Sears can put a rubber hose in it, which is not affected by cold.

Pretty good hose reel

After reading all the reviews on here, I was skeptical. I closely examined the reel in the store, and figured I'd give it a shot. The case is plastic, yes, but it's pretty rugged, and the hose rewinding function is just great. No more using your hands to guide the hose evenly across the reel. The bracket and mounting options are also excellent, elected to put it under my workbench, it had just enough room left to put a small Craftsman rolling seat under it. As for the hose, yes it's not a huge sturdy one, but it works. You'll have to add a quick disconnect to it but no biggie. The 9 foot lead in hose is just right to get it to my compressor (now I can hide that out of the way). Just make sure you teflon tape the connecting threads! If the hose ever dies, go get the black heavy-duty Craftsman one and you're set, it seems like there's plenty of room inside the reel.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Hose included is junk -- better off buying at discount tool shop

I buy a lot of Craftsman stuff, but this reel was overpriced.... for what they gave me.  Yes, it retracted hose as it should, but it is just made so cheaply, and the hose included is junk.  It doesn't flex like air hose should; even my chespest HF air hose is 100% nicer.  I didn't want to have to replace the hose on a brand new reel, so I returned this and bought another retractable reel, with much better hose, at a lower price through a mail order/internet retailer up in the 'northern' area.

Air Reel

Works great, it is just what I wanted. I mounted to the wall above my air line that runs to the compressor. When I need air I just turn on the compressor and pul the correct amount of hose I need. When finish the hose retracts in side all neat and clean. no mess no tripping over it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice hose reel works well

I have owned one of these hose reels for 5 years and it still works perfectly. The hose included is a little on the cheap side, but for the home hobbyist it works well. If it were something I was to use everyday I would probably have replaced the hose.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Hose Reel

I received this hose reel for a birthday present this year and absolutely love it. I have it connected to my Craftsman compressor and it takes the place of a 50-foot reel of tangled hose that was previously sitting in the middle of my garage floor.

I love the fact that it not only auto-retracts but that winder moves back and forth automatically to layer the hose neatly inside the reel.

Craft 50 ft. air hose Reel, Retractable

Craftsman better start making better quality products. B4 even finishing the install. the bump stop on the air hose snapped right off. I Just finished hanging this from my 20 foot ceiling garage, and guess what, now i have to climb up there again unistall and bring back to the store. Not good craftsman. You guys should pay more attention to detail and the important things of your products. Not too happy about this purchase.

Works fine.

The Craftsman reel is great; the hose could have been better quality;...the instructions said I needed a bench/high wall mounting bracket for the location I needed to mount the reel and no one from Sears/Craftsman can seem to locate this part. I would think that someone could get me this piece!

Reel Is Great, Hose Is Worthless

I like this reel A LOT!  Keeps the hose orginized, never snags.  That part is great.  The hose that comes with it however sucks.  Breaks at the end, not that flexible, just poor quality PVC hose.  I ended up ripping the hose out and replacing it with 50ft of rubber hose.  Now it's perfect! :)

I would recommend this product to a friend.
