I like the Suncast with the smart track or slide track hose guide.* You have to wind it, but the one with the hoseguides will automatically space the hose on the wheel so it won't get all tangled and bunched up.** I have two different ones.* I have an older one that doesn't have the smart track and it's a mess to roll up the hose.* I contacted them to see if I can get parts to convert it, but that's not possible the way it's built. * The one that I* really like is at the bottom of this page on the left.* There's even a place to put your foot to hold the entire box in place while you rewind.* You can see it at the bottom of the box on the right.* It's most helpful when you have a long hose.* I have found the Suncast folks most helpful.* One winter I forgot to disconnect the hose from the spicot and the water froze and broke the place where the hose attaches.* They sent me a new one for free even though it was my fault.
We sell them here.* I didn't realize we did until after I told you about mine.* I did a search by clicking on 'Products' on the left and then searching with the term:* Hose Hideaway
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
