Coxreel Question.

I got a coxreel competitor for one of my feed reels. I really like it so far and was thinking of getting another one for the high pressure side. It says max is 3000 psi. My machine is 2500 psi with 3000 spike. Just wondering if this will hold up? I like the way there is a groove on the manifold for the hose, so you don't get that sharp bend. I also like that it has 1/2" inlet and outlet. Anybody have coxreels? and how are they holding up?

The reel is wonderful, the Swivel not so much. Once the Swivel goes don't buy the rebuild kit for it like I did.... Twice. Just replace it with a super Swivel.

I did buy one of those GP hose reels that looks very similar to a coxreel. Haven't used it yet though.

I'm curious of those GP reels, was debating between those and cox reels when it's time to upgrade mine. From other reviews I read they are very similar looking, with just a shorter arm on the wind up.

The Swivel is completely different as are the bearing that the reel rolls on. The reel has some side to side movement, I haven't looked at it for more than a minute but it's something that I have to tighten. If I go over there later I'll snap some pics.

I have used Cox reels for about 6 years,the first thing I would do is replace the swivel with a Super Swivel.I just bought 4 titan reels for my new trailer.The
only thing I don't like about the Cox reels are they rust after about 6 months of use.
