Capable of handling harsh mining environments, this reel can conveniently attach on to trucks and overhead cranes, or other fixed/mobile equipment. It also handles high-pressure, high-temperature liquids. A spring rewind feature saves time and effort by simplifying pickup and storage, while a non-sparking ratchet assembly unit composed of machined, forged and stamped parts makes the N700 safer to operate in hazardous areas. The unit handles 1/4- to 1/2-in. I.D. hose and includes a declutching arbor to prevent against damage during reverse winding.
