Drive Types

Direct Drive

Direct Drive

The direct drive system is coupled straight to the main shaft (sometimes incorporating a gear box) and eliminates the need for chain and sprockets. This method requires fewer components and less maintenance for increased efficiency and service life. The direct drive feature is available with most motor types. Contact the engineered products group for more information.

Chain Drive

Chain Drive

The chain drive system uses a roller chain, or drive chain, over a sprocket gear to convey power and drive the rotation of the reel. This method provides high power and strength for heavier cable and hose. Many different chain pitch sizes and options are available. The chain drive feature is available with most motor types. Contact the engineered products group for more information.

Chain Drive

Gear Drive

Gear Drive

The gear drive option uses a system of gears to rotate and power the reel. The main advantages of a gear drive system are their smaller dimensions, higher efficiency, longer life, greater dependability and lack of slippage. The gear drive system is available with most motor types. Contact the engineered products group for more information.

Vertical Bevel Crank Hose Reel

Vertical Bevel Crank

The bevel crank option uses two toothed gears that interact with each other to transform the motion of the handle to turn the reel. The vertical configuration of the crank handle allows for overhead mounting of the reel. This reel is constructed of 304 stainless steel with a twin line 304 stainless 1" fluid path rated at 3000 P.S.I. The reel can handle 3/4" and 1" I.D. hose up to 200' in length. Contact the engineered products group for more information on all bevel crank options.
