    I've went through three of these junk plastic Wal-Mart hose reels now that fall apart after 6 months. Has anyone found a good brand that isn't total junk or 200$ because it's metal?

    I'd just leave the hose laying in the yard but... I don't make the rules... big surprise there.

    An 18" steel wheel and non-kink hose do pretty well if you don't mind doing it by hand instead of a crank.
