      I'm picking it up next week. It's an 8ft. bed I need to put the welder on it and I'm looking for some inexpensive welding reels.

        Where I work we have one servcie truck that has an 8' foot bed. We set the welder in the middle with control panel facing to the rear. made hoooks for the welding cable. Does your new truck have bins on the outside? "service body" I'm assuming it does. Are you looking for reels for the welding cables or the torch hoses?

              Hose Reels

              Do yourself a favor and don't buy cheap hose reels, as the old saying goes, "you can pay now or pay later", buy good quality reels now and you won't have to replace them later. I've learned this lesson the hard way! Good luck with the new truck and your new business!

                  Have never seen a reel for welding cable, maybe somebody on here knows who makes them. I have seen hose reels for O/A though. All our stuff is in hand coils.

                  congrats on the good business

                        Thanks for all the good info. GENT!!!!!! I checked out some web-sites **** they are expensive, Hanley makes really nice hand cranks but not sure of the price yet. Does anyone have any pics. of how therie welder is set up with the reels. The new truck is a service body and I'm trying to save as much space as I can.

                          I've been looking for ideas for a good reel set-up too. It's a project that should have been done years ago but I still haven't got around to it. Any good pictures or links to a thread with info would be great!

                              Express Trailer Products

                              I was in contact with Cody, the sales manager at Express Trailers in Victoria on April 30. All prices are in Canadian dollars.

                              Arc Welding Spoolers $795.00
                              Remote Spooler $295.00
                              Oxy/Fuel Spoolers - not in production, still in prototype stage.
                              Welder roll-out bed $795.00

                              I priced out the roller bed so I could mount my Ranger 250 inline with the box, with control panel facing tailgate and be able to roll welder out away from toolboxes to service.

                              Later,
