When I first tried to set this up, I had the experience which the previous poster had - water gushed out of the connection and the hose popped off. Being a woman, and averse to giving up and driving the item back, I looked carefully at the female garden hose end to male plastic connector on the hosereel. At first I thought the plastic threads were bad. Then realized the female coupler (metal)on the hose I was attaching did not seem to be seating down as far as when I tried using a plastic female connector on the threads. I made sure the section of hose (with the female metal connector connector)was in alignment with the plastic threaded connector on the hosereel and carefully turned until the hose was completely seated over the hosereel threads. It worked beautifully. Just make sure the hose seats well onto the hosereel outlet, it really has to seat well down. It's fiddly because of the angle at which the female hose outlet has to be attached to the plastic connector on the inner side of the hosereel. It just needs some careful threading.

The problem with this product is (a) it is top heavy, and easily tips when fully loaded, (b) you have to use both hands to reel in the hose to align it and keep it tight, (c) you have to stand on the darn thing to keep it from following the hose instead of the hose following the reel, and (d) once you have reeled in the hose, you need something to literally tie the hose in place to keep it from trying to uncoil. I have a $5 hose "hanger" that does a better job of holding my hose. This was a complete waste of money.

    Comments about Suncast® Hose Mobile Hose Reel Cart (JNF175B):

    My first Suncast Mobile Hose Reel Cart is this still going strong after three years. I leave it outside all summer, put it away after the first heavy frost. That cycle starts again in the spring. I haven't had a single problem and I don't have any complaints and today I purchased my second Suncast Mobile Hose Reel Cart and a 50 foot length of rubber hose capable of handling very hot water. I'll add another 50 foot length of rubber hose if need be. Going from the patio next to the house down to the berry patch or out to the garden was just getting to be a little much for this senior citizen. I intend to use my new purchase almost exclusively for the patio area, this way I'll be able to leave the one that's three years old Down in the berry patch and garden area.

      Comments about Suncast® Hose Mobile Hose Reel Cart (JNF175B):

      When I initially attached the hose, I had multiple leaks. I found that hand-tightening is insufficient. You must tighten all connections with a locking pliers. The leaks will go away. Just be careful not to over-tighten.

      Comments about Suncast® Hose Mobile Hose Reel Cart (JNF175B):

      I put 125 feet of hose on reel & kept it out of the way until needed and in storage shed in winter. If left on the lawn the squirrels would have eaten all of it, but instead only devoured parts of it to design it to their liking, when they found where I kept it. Their work didn't in any way affect it's usefulness.
      I'm now ready to replace it since the core part of it broke after 10 years use; it was plastic, after all.

              I really didn't want to leave my new hose outside and dragging it into the garage sounded like a lot of work. So this cart of the perfect answer. Works like a hose cart should. The hose is attached to the inner wheel and a side hose connects to the water supply… meaning you only unwind the amount of hose you want. It has two hose-end holders that prevent dragging the fittings on the ground. This was a good investment and will pay for itself by extending the life of my garden hose for years.

                            The mobile hose reel wobbled when rolling around from day one. It's neither durable nor sturdy. The hose mounting system broke after about 12 months of use. Would not recommend to anyone. Money is better spent on a more durable steel hose reel.

                              The water connection fitting comes off during every use and the reel handle broke off after a short time. Water is too strong for all these plastic parts. Avoid this and buy a metal hose reel.

                              I purchased this Reel for front garden hose, and moving it to the back once in a while. The construction is all formed plastic, light wgt and no assembly really required. My only worry is the spindal the hose reel spins on and how long it will last. I would not leave this setting in the sun all the time, will make the plastic brittle and reduce the lift of the Reel.

                                  Comments about Suncast® Hose Mobile Hose Reel Cart (JNF175B):

                                  After many years of wishing for a hose reel, I found this one on sale at my local ACE. I couldn't be more pleased. The hose provided was too short for my requirements, so I purchased a 6' hose extender. After carefully screwing together the pieces, I haven't had a lick of trouble. In fact, I had more leakage simply screwing the hose to the faucet!

                                  With the reel's open design, I can roll a lot of hose onto it. It also means that if the hose slips off the main body of the reel, it is easy to fix. The large crank makes quick and easy work of reeling in a long hose. The design makes it easy to tote around the back yard. The biggest boons have been the ability to move the hose with ease. I no longer dread mowing! Also, the reel makes it easy to coil up and store a fairly long hose. What used to take me 15 minutes of careful and dirty work now takes about a minute. My plants are thanking me for the investment.

                                  My issues are nit-picky at best. You have to turn off the hose & then release pressure before reeling it in. Since the reel works best with the hose extended in "front" of the unit, that can mean a quick trip back to the nozzle to release pressure after shutting the tap. This is a problem with any reel, so it does not overly concern me. The addition of the 6' extender gives me more flexibility in positioning the reel, which makes this even less of a problem, thus my recommendation for that "accessory." I would also like slightly larger & more rugged wheels, but those provided are a match for most lawns.

                                  Overall, I would highly recommend this reel as a good value for your money. Take care and assemble it properly and you will find it to be a great boon to your backyard oasis.

                                      Water connection comes apart and water sprays everywhere. This product has serious design flaws and should be avoided.

                                          When I first tried to set this up, I had the experience which the previous poster had - water gushed out of the connection and the hose popped off. Being a woman, and averse to giving up and driving the item back, I looked carefully at the female garden hose end to male plastic connector on the hosereel. At first I thought the plastic threads were bad. Then realized the female coupler (metal)on the hose I was attaching did not seem to be seating down as far as when I tried using a plastic female connector on the threads. I made sure the section of hose (with the female metal connector connector)was in alignment with the plastic threaded connector on the hosereel and carefully turned until the hose was completely seated over the hosereel threads. It worked beautifully. Just make sure the hose seats well onto the hosereel outlet, it really has to seat well down. It's fiddly because of the angle at which the female hose outlet has to be attached to the plastic connector on the inner side of the hosereel. It just needs some careful threading.

                                            This product has given me nothing but trouble. The connection between the hose to the faucet and the caddy is a flimsy piece of plastic. It constantly comes disconnected when the water is turned on, causing water to go everywhere! I am so furious with this product. It has been nothing but trouble and frustration. Save your money!
