Graco introduced a new line of hose reels to meet the servicing needs of heavy-duty vehicles. The new XD 40 and XD 50 hose reels incorporate a patent-pending exclusive swivel design that reduces pressure drop and can help to increase fluid flow rates, which are critically important for servicing large equipment.
Pressure drop for a bare XD 40 or XD 50 at 24 gallons per minute with 10-weight oil is 3.2 psi, compared to 18.7 psi for 700 Series hose reels.
“Graco’s innovative open flow design means technicians spend less time filling vehicles, which allows the vehicles to operate for more time each day,” said said Laura Evanson, Graco product marketing manager.
The new reels are manufactured with strong, corrosion-resistant materials designed for extended life. They are offered in three colors, blue, yellow and white, to integrate into a maintenance shop, service truck or job site.
Standard models come complete with factory-installed hoses to save labor and installation time. Graco also offers bare hose reels for installing customer specified hoses, which increases the number of potential usage applications.
