Large Deck Reel with Firehose



This deck mounted hose reel has all welded steel construction. It is equipped with approximately 500' of 2 1/2" jacketed firehose comprised of multiple lengths connected by Pyrolite fittings. This assembly sits on a round base measuring 69 1/2" diameter and 12 1/4" tall. Angle-iron "A"-frame supports extend from the base on either side of the reel, holding it in place and allowing the unit to rotate. The outer disks of the reel are roughly 59" in diameter. An internal spur gear assembly is equipped to the center of one disk, driven by hand crank, the low gear ratio allows for easy operation of the reel with relatively minor effort. The reel is secured by a large metal pin that goes through one of the supports and into a hole at the edge of the corresponding disk. This unit is coated in worn, flaking, marine grade gray paint and has rust visible, mostly on the base, where the steel is exposed. The reel is in good functioning condition. The condition of the hose is untested, the jacketing appears to be in fair shape, but shows signs of exposure to a harsh nautical environment. This reel was salvaged from the Mayor J Harold Grady, a 6000 GPM (gallon per minute) fireboat built in 1960, serving Baltimore, Maryland, from 1961 until it was decommissioned in 2007. This fireboat and items from it are featured on Season 10, Episode 8, of the Diy Network show, "Salvage Dawgs". Weight: 2100 lbs. Item Measurements: 70.5(L) x 70.5(W) x 76(H) As seen on Season 10, Episode 8.
