New Line of Hose Reels Yield Significant Safety Improvements
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 20, 2013--
Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG) has introduced a new line of power rewind hose
reels to meet the service needs of numerous industries, including the
oil, gas, and mining markets. The XD 60™, XD 70™ and XD 80™ power rewind
hose reels are designed to set a new standard in the market for safety
and performance. The new reels complement Graco’s recently released XD
40™ and XD 50™ spring hose reels to extend the line into more
The new XD power rewind reels feature an innovative direct drive motor
design that is safer for operators and requires less maintenance than
chain driven models. The drive unit is completely enclosed for longer
life without the need for lubrication maintenance. The design is also
safer than chain driven models because there are fewer pinch points,
which significantly reduces the chance of injury.
“Graco’s new power rewind hose reels offer a significant safety
improvement over traditional chain driven designs,” said Laura Evanson,
Graco Product Marketing Manager. “We’re particularly proud that the new
reels aren’t just safer. They offer our customers the performance they
need in rugged field environments.”
The Graco exclusive, patent-pending swivel design allows better flow to
get work done faster and more efficiently. The new line offers
hydraulic, pneumatic, and electric 12, 24, 115, and 230-volt motors. The
modular design allows for any motor be matched with any of the three new
frame sizes to easily configure reels for most any application needing
power rewind. Reels are easily configured for left or right hand
connections by switching the outlet and motor rotation for ease of
installation. Its modularity also makes it easy for distributors to
stock components so they can service customers faster.
The heavy-duty, one-piece welded frame is engineered to flex under
extreme operating conditions and is stronger than bolted frames that can
loosen with use. Individually painted and powder coated components have
superior corrosion resistance over assembled and painted products. Reels
are available in a choice of three colors– blue, yellow, or white.
