Retractable Hose Reelers

The SealVac unit can be fitted with retractable fuel and vacuum hose reelers for a compact and secure hose storage solution. These reelers are designed for heavy duty use and to provide protection for the hoses while not in use. The reelers house the duplex vacuum hoses for the fuel and adaptor plates. There is also a fifth reel for the air inlet hose. The air inlet reeler has spring loaded return for ease of use, for safety reasons the fuel reelers are a manual return reeler with a manual lockout screw. The reels should be locked when the unit is in operation, being towed or left unattended .The reelers are mounted on open toolboxes that house pelican cases containing the adaptor plates and the accessories kits. To prevent the items getting lost these pelican cases should be checked into a toolstore when the SealVac is not in use.

To be used in conjunction with the Octopus Dribble Drain Interface Plate
