    "Please note the GrippaReels are proving to be extremely popular currently and we are thus building each reel to order. If you need your reel urgently, please call to confirm lead time"

    The newest addition to the GrippaTank product range, the GrippaREEL is 9 years in the making.

    Based purely on an extensive customer wish list, along with the wealth of experience we have gained on the thousands of installations carried out thus far, it has been specifically designed to be used in conjunction with our GrippaMAX cleaning system.  The various options of hose reels have been tested by our product testers over the past year, with active ongoing development based on feedback having been received.

    This product is intended to make the cleaning operatives life easier and less tiring, as well as making it safer.

    Packed with features, our range includes:

    •  Available in powder coated steel (select blue or black) or stainless steel.

    • Fixed floor mounted reel which can be easily removed without tools within seconds (*if quick release base is purchased)!

    • Stackable as standard - no additional racking required. Using the revolutionary StakaReel technology as standard, the reels simply slot on top of each other, giving you much needed space on demand.  Stack 2 manual, 2 electric, or one of each

    • Built from a combination of high-quality steel components, it’s not only strong and durable but lightweight and easy to handle

    • Available as either hand cranked, or chainless gear box driven electric versions, the GH-VS1 range can be used for low pressure (up to 300psi) with ½” 50 metre hose and 100 metres of 8mm or 6mm hose.

    •  The chainless electric motor has been specifically concealed as part of the core product design, making it safer, more effective and efficient - no additional floor space is taken up due to the clever compact gearbox design.

    • Electric reels come with the option of a remote control or wired control system  (Remote control is limited to 50mtrs 'line of sight operation - this is a safety feature) 

    • Electric reels include intelligent power assisted pull out, which matches the speed of the operator pulling out the unit.

    • The chainless motor is multi-directional - not just rewind.

    • Variable Speed Control both on the wired and remote versions for the electric reels.

    • Electric reels fitted as standard with Safety shutoff in keeping with the working machinery act.

    • Easily Serviceable - all parts can be easily replaced on site

    Electic Reels supplied with an Emergency Handle Assembly (in case of power failure)

    Electric reels supplied with 5 metres of positive and negative cable along with conduit and fuse holder, and are designed to be VERY low on power consumpation with a maximum draw of 3 - 4 amps !   -  just connect the pos and neg feeds to your existing battery.

    • Upgradeable - as with all GrippaTank products, our hose reels can be updated (to include Stainless Steel roller guides) or converted to electric at a later date (when returned to GrippaTank)

    • Weights;    Powder Coated Mildsteel: 17kg (hand cranked) or 26kg (electric) ;     Stainless Steel: 15.6kg (hand cranked) or 24.6kg (electric)

    • Dimensions:    Depth = 400mm,   Height = 445mm (+15mm QR base),   Width 350mm (bare reel)  or 450mm (for electric unit with plumbing) or 600mm (with handle and plumbing)

    NB:- Note the external dimensions shown are the absolute external dimensions including the handle and plumbing connections. Even with these external dimensions, the reels will .easily sit side by side with over 250mm gap between the end of each of the handles in a new shape Vauxhall Vivaro by way of an example. 

    NB: "If stacking hose reels on top of each other, we do not recommend using the quick release base for the bottom reel, but rather to bolt the bottom reel onto the vehicle. The top stacking reel can still be quick released, if a quick release base is fitted to the top of the bottom reel."

    A Quick Getaway...

    Review by M.M - Scotland on 23/12/2019

    Hi, Did a few first cleans today and what a difference the hot water makes especially when you tell the customers. Then a quick getaway winding the hose on with electric ways. Definitely the way forward when cleaning windows or pvc. Cheers m

    Well made unit.

    Review by N.R - Wales on 22/07/2019

    Very pleased with it. It's smooth and reasonably quiet. It drops another metre out when you've finished unreeling for a job, so the hose lays on the ground. Well made unit.
    You can choose from coloured or stainless steel chassis. I think the main difference from other manufacturers is that the motor is not chain driven. It drives the drum round from a unit built into the centre. Very neat and tidy. No chain to worry about.
    It comes with a quite solid control box and wired extension with control buttons. Plus the option of remote control.
