Small hose reel recommendation?

Can someone tell me what particular hose reel is being used on a z-spray?

My spray rig is a 12' dry boom on a garden tractor with 25 gallon tank and 5.0 gallon/min diaphragm pump.

I only have 50' x 3/8" hose for the wand but dragging and manually wrapping the hose around a garden hose hanger is time-consuming. I'm getting to where I drag the hose behind the tractor more and more because of the trouble of wrapping the hose.

I only ran over the hose 10 times this week and only wrapped the hose around the axle 4 times.

Would this work? http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...6500_200356500

Not looking to spend $350.00 on a reel.

Thank You.

Sure would. Not like you need an electric rewind, right? I refuse to handle spray hose without a reel. Even a cheap hand cranked reel saves lots of grief. Btw, I am still on the same hose I got 6 years ago. It goes on a reel. I never drive over it or get it wrapped up. No signs of impending failure.

I think I read they use Cox reels. Cox and reelcraft are some of the best reels made.
I have a reel craft hooked to my Quincy compressor and it is very well made and heavy duty.

I would have ordered that one but it's 1/4" hose and all my stuff is 3/8".

I ordered one of these today...was on sale and right at $79.00 including tax and shipping. It has a spring-driven rewind.

I'll let you know how it works when I get it installed.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Installed and works well.

I should have bought one of these years ago.

I ordered another one for the John Deere spot sprayer.

Handling hose without a reel just isn't civilized.
Manual reel at minimum.
Electric reel if you handle a long hose or handle it all day.
