16+ years in the industry and I have never used an electric reel and dont find rolling up hoses hard or an issue. Unrolling for set up and hose management is is harder especially for newer guys.

Just do yourself a favor, never use an electric reel. That way you won't know what your missing. :)
Both of you are speaking the truth, but at the end of 7 hours hitting cgd I wish I had one . I used to...only thing is, you have to be more careful when hose get ridgid in cold weather and you might get your face slapped while reeling hose in...

No way, and i mean absolutely no way would i ever own a manual reel again! Way to much effort involved in rolling up 15 or 20 times a day (we do alot of multifamily housing). I would rather my guys direct that effort at the carpet. Easier you can make things the better it is.

For some reason i cant qoute messages but @1stchoicecleaning you said in 16 years youve never used one then you really dont know what your missing brother. Id bet if you ran one for a week or two you would never go back to a manual reel.

You may be right but then again I dont do much of the set up and put away anymore.

We have an electric on one truck and it really is a huge upgrade. Im used to the manual one but that truck is all side doors so all together the whole set up and tear down access is really convenient
