I have a silly question; I have a 3 yr old skid sprayer with the 1/2ID yellow hose, 300'. I have several spots where the hose has kinked repeatedly, so the hose is prone to kinking in these spots. All these spots are within 50-60' of the gun end, they have become weak. I am wondering if it would be advantageous for me to reverse my hose, so the gun end became the end attached to the reel. Anyone ever do this? Did it help? I can't imagine it wouldn't, the last 100' on the reel only comes off for 4 or 5 lawns each round. Thanks for any feedback.
