npakronWooster, Ohio – Akron Brass introduces Low Profile Booster Hose Reel and Compact Cord Reel, the newest additions to its growing family of electric rewind reel products.

The Low Profile Booster Hose Reel is lower in height, does not require
as much compartment depth as do similar reels and can fit in spaces
where others cannot. With a capacity of 250 feet of 0.74-inch or 150
feet of one-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 inches height), the new Compact
Electric Rewind Cord Reel can still hold 100feet 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.
