Hannay Reels to Exhibit Reels for the Transportation Industry at Work Truck Show 2009


Westerlo, NY, February 6, 2009 - Hannay Reels today announced that it will exhibit at the Work Truck Show, March 4-6, 2009, at booth number 1972 in the McCormick Place West building in Chicago, Ill.

The company offers several recently updated reels designed for a variety of work truck applications, including welding, machine, grounds maintenance, air compressor and wash down. Hannay's custom design capabilities also allow them to offers expertise and manufacturing flexibility to build a custom reel to exact specifications.

The N400 Series gas welding reel is specifically designed to improve the efficiency and safety of welding operations. The reel handles ¼-inch through 3/8-inch oxygen/gas dual hose in lengths of up to 100 feet. It features two swivel joint inlets and two outlet risers to handle twin gas welding hose. The narrow frame design of the N400 makes it ideal for environments with limited space.

The N700 spring rewind hose reel has been continuously enhanced with service, efficiency and safety features to meet an even broader range of applications. A non-sparking separate ratchet assembly unit composed of machined, forged and stamped parts makes the reel safer to operate. The new design affords better access to the pawl and pin, even in hard-to-reach machine applications. Newly designed seals in the heavy-duty spring motor and redesigned arbor, provide superior protection in dirty environments and simplifies maintenance. The position of the hose riser has also been adjusted to improve alignment of the hose on the drum during retraction. The N700 can accommodate single ¼-inch through ½-inch I.D. hose and is designed for lubrication, air/water, assembly, wash down and general industrial applications.

The 1500 Series hose reel is specifically designed for grounds maintenance and pressure washing. Its compact size and various options make this reel exceptionally versatile. A direct-crank rewind is permanently attached to the axle. A chain and sprocket-driven motor option is also available, run by either an electric, hydraulic or compressed air power rewind. An optional positive, spring-activated pin lock is available for the power rewind model to prevent freewheeling and recoil from pressure surges. The 1500 Series can accommodate ¼-inch to 5/8-inch I.D. hose.

The 1800 Series, a lightweight, compact reel designed for long lengths of hose, is available in manual or power rewind. A direct-crank rewind is permanently attached and a chain-and-sprocket drive is powered by electric, hydraulic or compressed air motor. Ideal applications for the 1800 Series include air compressors and wash down, and it can handle single 5/8-inch or 3/4-inch I.D. hose.

Since 1933, Hannay Reels has been helping companies around the world improve the productivity, efficiency and safety of their operations with hose and cable reels. Hannay's extensive design experience, "mass customization" production process, and quality controls have made the company the leading choice among reel users and OEMs alike. Hannay recently celebrated its diamond anniversary, marking 75 years of reel pride for the company.
