Electric Hose Reel
The electric hose wheel (R4) with speed control has been developed especially for horticulture. The hose wheel can be turned on and off from a distance by means of the spray pistol or ball valve. There are no special demands for the spray pistol or ball valve. Moreover the hose wheel can be easily put on a spray car that is already present. The winding speed of the hose wheel is adjustable and changes automatically. Thus the person working with the hose wheel always works at the same speed.
The remote control is handled by a spray gun or a valve at the end of the hose. The spray gun or valve can be of any conventional type. There are two different options to remote control the hose reel.
1. By a quick pull (less than 1 second) on the spray gun’s trigger the reel starts / stops;
2. As long as the trigger on the spray gun is pulled or the valve is open, the hose reel pulls
in the hose.
The speed is adjustable between 30-60 m/min. The unit adjusts the speed when the hose builds up on the hose reel by slowing down the revolutions/min. When initially starting up the total hose length and diameter of the hose must be set on the control box.
The unit will automatically stop if the hose becomes ”locked”. The pulling speed will automatically go down when the end of the hose is around 3 m from the hose reel and stops automatically when the hose is completely pulled in.
The frame is made of stainless steel and the hose reel is made of stainless steel and aluminum. The shaft of the reel and the swivel are made of
