Hose Reels for Insulation Blowing Machines and Insulation Removal Vacuums

Hose Reels keep your blowing and vacuuming hose safe and convenient. Here is why you should consider a hose reel along with your purchase of a blowing machine or removal vacuum:

  • Eliminates pinched hose. When the hose gets pinched, it creates a nuisance trouble spot. From that time forward, the hose will be prone to kinking.
  • Saves time in various ways.
    • Keeping your hose kink-free will save production time. I have witnessed bad blockages shutting down the operation for at least 20 minutes while people cut sections of hose apart.
    • When you throw your hose, loose, into the back of a truck or trailer, material will end up falling on the hose, crushing it and making it difficult to remove. A hose reel eliminates this hazard and keeps your hose safe and quickly accessible.
  • Saves money. Not only will you save money with less production shutdowns, your hose will last much longer when it is stored on a reel. Hose is not that expensive, but when you can get at least three times of the life from your hose, the investment in the hose reel makes good financial sense.
  • Keeps your hose clean. You need to take your hose into houses. When stored on a reel, the hose is kept off the ground and away from the debris on the floor of  your trailer or truck.
  • Organization maximizes space. A common complaint among those who do not have a hose reel is that they do not want to lose room in their trailer. The hose will take up space whether it is on a reel or not. As you can see above, the benefits offset the wrong idea that space is lost.

Quality of our hose reels

Our hose reels are manufactured by Cool Machines. They are lightweight, powder-coated and will last a lifetime. They come in various dimensions and are available as divided reels.

To install the wall mounts, we recommend you install a sheet of 5/8″ plywood to the inside of your trailer and then install the mount to that.

Live Hose Reel

The live hose reel saves time by allowing you to keep the hose attached to the machine and pulling out only the amount of hose you need. The insulation flows into the center of the reel where it enters the hose. This is a Cool Machine innovation!
