    Got up early this morning, unloaded and hooked up a mowing trailer, hit Lesco at 8am, picked up a couple tons of supplies, & unloaded them, then treated a 7 acre park with my 200gal spacesaver, took 3 tanks, I finish up and I am dead tired, that 300 ft of hose feels like 1,000 lbs, I go to wind it up for the last time and the fuse has blown on my electric hose reel :dizzy: At least I hope its the fuse.
    I tell you what I gained a new appreciation for that electric rewind.

    sounds like your ready for a riding spreader/sprayer!! I got one last year and man does it make the work easier! I know what you mean about the auto rewind reel, the first 5 yrs in the business I used the hanney hand crank model! then I finally broke down and bought the electric reel, what a armsaver!!

    I was out spraying trees with hort oil a few falls ago. We had 200' of 1 1/2" hose. Had about 198' of it out. Got 3 or 4 feet coiled up and the motor fries. Smoke pouring out of it. My shoulder hurt for days after coiling that!!
