Good reviews. 4.0 & higher.

This unit (SSB200B) has a great storage bin for keeping useful items like gardening tools, watering sprinklers, garden hose nozzles, etc. I have an older stationery model in my front yard but this newer one also has a swivel base. I'm thinking this will be really handy when reeling the hose back in (it can turn to face the direction of the hose). So my old unit (probably 15 years old) is going in the back yard and the new one is going in the front. The hose windup works well but you can't have those gargantuan hose protectors inline if you are combining multiple hoses (this will hold 225 ft. of hose). Hose protector is fine on final hose end. I even used to throw my house keys in the storage bin when going out for my morning walk/run. Don't have to do that anymore since I switched to a Schlage keyless door lock.

Got mine on Amazon for 44 about 2 months ago. We like it. Only negative is that it will tip over if you pull all the hose out. Recommend putting in more hose than needed or putting a heavy object inside

Did you use the mounting (grounding stakes) that are included. My older unit has never tipped over but then I typically have 200 ft. of hose on it. About every 7-10 years I buy a new 100+ footer at Costco and use the older one as the base hose and attach the newer one on the end. So I have 200+ feet of hose. Rarely pull out more than 150' so I guess I always have some weight in it.

We have it atop mulch so it proved pretty hard to get the grounding stakes in right. Good idea with the older hose beneath. That's my plan from now on.

Thanks for the tips! Just ordered this... I have a 150' hose to put in it now but might join it with our 50' as well to ensure it's nice and heavy. Wink

It shows at 69.99. Is it still selling for $59 for anyone?
