I borrowed my neighbor Dewalt impact wrench. Didn't even turn it a hair with the reel empty. I put new battery in my Ryobi and it spun it up with no problem. Still no fluid in it though.

I ran water thru the hose today. Used my Ryobi with a freshly charged battery.
about half way in it started struggling but it reeled it all in. i might try again tomorrow but this time drag the hose in close to the truck and see if that makes a diff.

It must be a North Carolina thang!blankstare
My dad's from Blews Creek NC. I remember him building a street sweeper to sweep parking lots before we painted them. If was so powerful we were scared to use it. Im sure it qualified as some kind of primative weapon of mass destruction.

OK all you Naa sayers. I did my first 2 roofs. Used my Dewalt to reel it in 4 different times. It worked great. I need to make some blocks to set it between because the torque keeps trying to break my wrist. With the blocks I can control the speed that it reels the hose. Right now I have to pretty much do it at full speed (#1 setting) which is still pretty fast.

I had another big nut welded onto the handle of my
pressure hose reel.
I am going to wait to buy a 24 volt cordless to use on that heavy 300' hose. Also welded one onto the handle to spin the trailer jack up and down faster...
I'm lazy..lol
