Series L 70000 spring-retractable cord reels from Reelcraft Industries are designed to hold up to 100 feet of 12-gauge cord. All models are UL-listed from 10 to 20 amps.

“The ability to have a UL-rated reel that can hold up to 100 feet of 12/3 cord is what makes it pretty special,” says Rex Larkin, vice president of sales and marketing at Reelcraft. “The UL rating essentially ensures that the electrical product will not burst into flames, so it’s really a protection for the consumer at the end of the day.”

A redesigned mechanism provides longer service life of the latch components, and the containerized drive spring offers safer and easier handling during maintenance, according to Larkin.

Steel construction and a baked-on, powder-coat finish combine for a heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant reel. The steel electrical enclosure provides a durable protective cover of electrical components. Two sealed ball bearings produce a smoother spool rotation and easier operation.

Models feature various cord ends ranging from single receptacle to triple tap with GFCI. “That way you can plug more than one thing into the end of the cord,” Larkin says. “Because we have the ability to put 12/3 cord on this reel, it’s not out of the range to have multiple tools running at the same time drawing current.”

The guide arm adjusts to seven positions for various mounting locations and applications.

“A reel makes the job easier to clean up afterwards, and it extends the life of the cord,” Larkin says. “Also, cords have a tendency to walk away, whereas a reel doesn’t. It’s bolted down.”

Larkin adds that the Series L 70000 is not just for cords. “We also can get 100 feet of 3/8-inch hose on this reel as well as 100 feet of pressure wash hose.” 800/444-3134;
