Definitely helps, just think all you have to do when you get back to the van is press a button and it reels in itself. Do you have a fixed reel at the moment or lift reel in and out every job?

Hi guys thank you for the reply, I am just think about buying the 350L compact system from xline I have a Nemo van .

My system was diy and 6 years old so getting a little messy, itís comes with a normal reel but can upgrade

Pf Reel master fixed in the van with the optional extra extendable guide arm with rollers is the perfect option and as splash and dash said I should have done it years ago when I kept saying to myself I should.

As above its basically a big yes!
I put having an electric reel up there with moving from slx to xtreme Poles, both game changers for me.
Less strenuous and makes you quicker as your less tired over the day and able to put abit more jobs in earning you more money so they pay for themselves over and over😉

Love our electric reels but sometimes we wish that they wasn't a fixed reel. Sometimes it's still great to be able to have the reel out of the van and pointing in the right direction.
Someone needs to invent an electric reel that with a pull of a lever simply drops down to the ground and is on a swivel base so you can just walk away with the hose.

I picked the extra option of an extended guide arm with rollers and works a treat and misses the back doors.

2 bits of ply, a suitable bearing, a nut and bolt and a couple of washers. Make your own if you need it.

I just purchased Pure freedom electric reel for my wife as she is having a lot of pain in her hand and fingers from winding in the hose. Hops this sorts the problem
