I am looking for a very good Garden Hose Hideaway Hose Reel Metal if all Possible. Which one is the best on the market today? I am tired of buying Plastic ones that either brake or does not last. I have about 150 feet of hose. I do not like to have the sun hitting the hose, so that is why I am looking for a Hideaway hose reel.

I don't know how good these things really are so check some other sites for reviews but these 2 keep popping up when I Google. You next bet may be to see if you can find a good metal worker in your area and see how much it would cost to build one locally.

I have had this one for years and years. Except for replacing a missing cotter pin on the handle, it has worked MUCH better than any plastic one I had in the past. Picked up 2 at a garage sale, kicking myself for leaving the 3rd one behind!

The one from Lowe's is great, but may I suggest they have one exactly like the pic shown but it has a pin that you can pivot the whole reel.
Just changed the pitch on mine today to get to my new daylily bed.
It works wonders. Cost more but if it lasts a LONG LONG time - then the convenience of it is well worth it.
At least everyone has a choice between the two according to their need and $$.
Couldn't find a pic of it but my local Lowe's still have them - was actually thinking about one for the other side of the house.
The one I have now is attached to the barn.
