This very handsome hose stand is extremely sturdy, really heavy duty. It is much more substantial than I thought it would be. I have 150 feet of hose on one stand and it is not at all overpowered. The coating is thick and should last a long time. The multiple ground anchors hold it well in place. I've bought several for different areas of my yard. The price is more than reasonable, considering the high quality of this stand.
