Reel is as described works great easy to put together would recommend to buy from this company
We haven’t had the solar reel long but it has been very useful in getting the cover off and on our new pool. Lightweight so it’s easy to maneuver but sturdy once the cover is on.
Looks good. Stronger then the plastic one I had before. Just finished assembly which was very easy. Have not hooked the cover on yet but all prepared. Waiting for it to cool down a bit.. I am sure it will work well. Very basic..
Works great for my sun shade for my lean-to greenhouse. Just a few simple engineering design modifications. My wife was totally pleased.
For $299 I expected a stronger reel. I didn't expect velcro straps and a flimsy base.
I'm very pleased with the value and the construction. Like the other reviews indicated, the instructions are terrible, but it's not difficult to figure out. Compared to the other products offered and the prices for those products, I'd definitely buy again.
This is very sturdy and I like that the turning wheel is high enough I dont have to stoop to roll up my pool cover. I just bend at the waist. I like the large wheels and I can steer the unit away from my pool while cleaning.
This was as easy to assemble as any assembly required furniture. I put it together myself in about two hours.
Arrived early. Easy to assemble. Just follow the pictures. No words required. If you have assembled kids' toys over the years, then this is a piece of cake. Pool cover rolls up pretty straight. Just crank slow and shift the whole unit an inch or so towards you, or away from you, if the cover starts to go on a little crooked.
I was pleasantly surprised by this. The quality of materials and manufacturing is very good. Assembly was easy and it works well as long as we are patient and roll and unroll the pool cover slowly to stop it bunching up. I have high hopes that this will last a long time.
