    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?

    Default 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
