The Low Profile Booster Hose Reel is lower in height, does not requiring as much compartment depth as similar reels and can fit in spaces where others can not. With a capacity of 250-feet of .74-inch or 150-feet of 1-inch hose, it is perfect for brush trucks, skid units, off-road utility vehicles and the rear body compartments of apparatus. 


As with other Akron Brass reel products, the Low Profile Booster Hose Reel is extremely durable with a powder-coated paint finish and stainless steel hardware.  Other standard features include a protective chain guard, hand crank, and tension control. The reel is backed by a five-year warranty including the electric motor.


Designed to be uncommonly short (11.5-inch height), the new Compact Electric Rewind Cord Reel can still hold 100-feet of 10/3 600-volt cable or 150 feet of 12/3 600-volt cable. With its compact frame and disc design, the reel can easily fit in a 12-inch tall void. Stand it upright, and it can be mounted on a 12-inch deep shelf without overhanging the back wall of a compartment. This reel also has a five-year warranty.
