New hose reel products from Graco

Fluid management technology business Graco has introduced a new line of power rewind hose reels suitable for many different markets, including oil, all designed with improved safety and performance in mind.

The new XD power rewind reels offer direct drive motors, believed to be safer for operators and more competitive in comparison to other similar products. Graco states the drive unit ‘requires minimum maintenance and has a longer life without the requirement for any lubrication maintenance’.

‘The XD Series is ideal for rugged, indoor and outdoor use in heavy-duty truck dealerships, fleet maintenance, mining maintenance, public works garages, construction vehicle maintenance and heavy-duty service trucks,’ a statement read.

The design of these reels is such that it also has fewer pinch points, which reduces the chance of injury.
