Hose Cart

Postby Geoff » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:04 pm

Anybody got any experience of hose carts?

I want something sturdy that will last, looked at a few online from Hozelock, Gardena and Karcher but can't decide from the reviews how good they are.

I got a Hozelock Compact 2in1 Reel with 25m Hose last year not the auto version very happy with.

No kinks in the hose and very easy to rewind.

Dear Geoff,
landmark trading has a very good looking reel on their website that is all metal for £116. They sell mainly to the professionals so it will be good quality. Where I work has an account with them and I get stuff from them as an individual as well.
Regards Sally Wright.

One of the most useful hose carts I have seen at a very competitive price. https://www.waterirrigation.co.uk/hydro ... gKASfD_BwE

Sensible height

I have a Hozelock cart which is beginning to break up as the plastic components break up. I will be recommending to my daughter that it is replaced by a metal unit and may even just invest in one of the above for her.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

Thanks for your replies. That looks a beast Sally but a bit over budget I fear. The trolley ones are also a bit expensive, I wonder if they fall over as you pull the hose. I think I have narrowed it down to these three with approximate prices.

I like the way the wheels are disabled during running out and the longer warranties.

I have a Karcher wall mounted reel in the polytunnel and I like the hose it came with so I have already purchased 50 metres of Karcher hose when I found it on offer so I am looking at bare hose carts. There are a couple of Karcher designs but neither of them have a stand or chock system to wedge the wheels whilst running out, they are 1 year warranty and there are quite a few one star reviews talking about flimsy design. In truth I think you can find negative reviews for most of them.

I've got Gardena Aquaroll. It never let me down.

Man, I don't want to be a loser. Soon I'll get the best free online baccarat casino games. For sure, those games are simple. That is what I think.
