Overall Rating: 4/5
Appear to be of very good quality. I like the fact that the hose attachment swivel can be repaired in the future. This will be an excellent replacement for the one I have now. The only down side to the assembly was the amount of powder coat paint in the threads on the hose drum stub shaft.
3 months old and rusting already?
Lifetime warranty except for rust, and it won't last 2 years the way it's rusting. Should have bought a CHEAP one at K-mart. Buyer beware!
Better than expected!
Don't be dissuaded from buying this hose reel due to reviews of similar looking reels from other retailers. This one is well built, rolls smoothly, doesn't leak a drop even under static pressure, and is easy to assemble. With the flat-free tires, it is solid. Add the heavy duty quick connects and you'll have a perfect setup.
Am an established customer. Bought the hose cart, put into service in April. Now June and the cart is showing signs of rusting out - definitely not a quality product. Also, this cart was not cheap!
well made - good value - needs a brake!
good cart, well made, good value, needs a brake
I purchased this item previously which withstood over 10 years of abuse and held up admirably. I was pleasantly suprised that the new model has even better construction and has been improved. I would highly recommend this hose wagon for anyone who uses water hoses frequently. Despite the initial outlay it is very economical in the long run.
It just worked, good construction
I'm semi-disabled and this is my favorite pull along from my JD mower. I have the watering down to a science and able to spend more time on the deck drinking beer with the neighbors.
BUILT TO LAST
...the feeder hose connection can be unscrewed and just put another layer of teflon tape on it, remove the old, which was jamming the threaded connection without making a seal. This is a great item, even if it lasted 4 years. It gets the hose out of the way, not in a huge tangled up coil laying somewhere, and the metal handle means breaking is impossible. Assembly is fast and well written...why do big box stores not carry this item. This item holds together.
good hose wagon
This hose wagon is well made, easy to put together, and convenient. I have been using for 2 months now and am still happy with it. It makes moving the hose around and storing it a pleasure. The valve that connects the wagon with the feeder hose tends to leak, but I notice that with many hose accessories.

Great for our new Floors
We saw the cart in your catalog and though it would be perfect for the new floors we just had installed at the fire house. It holds enough hose to wash the entire apparatus floors and go around the equipment to clean them also. Doesn't scratch the floor and moves easyly. Would high recommend really sturdy
one acre garden and more
What took me so long to buy one of these Leonard hose wagons?
The only draw-back of this hose reel is---it doesn't rewind itself. It is great in all other aspects.
Very Well Built Hose Reel
I purchased the Hose Wagon after previously having several plastic hose reels. They didn't last, and ALWAYS leaked. This Hose Reel is very well built, sturdy and brass fittings do not leak. It assembles easily and moves very freely on the air tires. The two things I would like to see added to this hose wagon are: (1) an adjustable "drag" or brake on the reel to help with "free wheeling" when you play out the hose. (2) a braking system on the wheels so that if when you are reeling in the hose the unit does not move back an forth on the "supply hose". Overall, this hose wagon is at the usual high quality of all [your] products I have purchased.
Great, Well-Built Product
This hose reel cart makes it so easy to use the hose. Reeling it in is so much easier compared to other carts I've used. This is the second one that I've bought.
This is my second hose reel I have ordered. Great reel well built.
I previously purchased a similar looking product that was cheaply made. I bought this hose wagon because of it being powder coated, the center of the reel being solid and the full side to side axles. My wife no longer has to struggle to roll up our 100' hose.
It's well built and was very easy to put together. It has worked out great for our business and we will probably get a few more.
Quality appears much better...
than the previous model it replaced. Wetted, moving parts are brass rather than steel and are clearly of good design. Provided hose is very heavy duty and will last a long time. Overall, and as far as I can tell, this is the best unit available on the market at its capacity rating
Great hose storage so far
I've had this hose wagon for about 4 months and so far, it has been great. No leaks anywhere and it stores a lomg length of hose you can cart around. I find the utility basket very useful. It happens to be the same color as the stucco of my house which is a nice plus. I live 2 miles from the ocean and no rust yet. So all in all, very good. It was also easy to assemble.
The hose reel is sturdy and well consructed. Easy to assemble.
