The hose reel, a Peterson exclusive, is an efficient way to unload and load hose in between jobs. Because larger lengths of hose can be stored, fewer couplers are needed. On blower trucks, the external reel is at the back of the truck, for blower trailers, it is enclosed at the front of the trailer. Peterson’s hose reel design has an optional powered take-up allowing operators to unreel and retract hose quickly and efficiently. This leaves operators better rested so that they can be more productive throughout their day, instead of being fatigued loading and unloading hose by hand.
The external hose reel can hold up to 320 feet (98 m) of hose.
The hose reel is available with an optional reel cover for custom graphics.
