The whole point of having the real is so you dont have all the hose lying around getting tangled if you have a 15m hose for your c130 then you'll have 15m in a heap on the floor
The hose doesn't lie in a heap, it lies in a straight line. I bought a 15m hose as that means I can leave the pw in one place and go round the whole car.

The point of the reel for me is storage

When you've pulled the hose out as far as you need do you then wind it back in if you then don't need the extra

I went for the cheaper but more powerful one(!?) the E160.

Im glad someone can get along with it, so when your finished rinsing or foaming do you leave the gun 15m away from the machine to keep the hose in a line.

I do wind it back in when not in use when doing a weekly maintenance wash as my buckets PW and other bits sit at the back of the drive so once ive rinsed of the foam I walk over to my buckets, next to my pw and put the gun in the holder and wind in a bit of slack to keep in nice and tidy, takes an extra 10 seconds.

I would go with the e150 or 160 as it features the 10m steel armoured superflex hose.

I bought the E145 a few year back over the E140 as the 145 featured the better hose though I see now even the new model E145 has went back to the 9m hose which when I did some research when I bought mine apparently wasn't as good.

When I got my E150 it was £290 and the E160 was £330, they must have dropped the price as they where just gathering dust on the shelves, either way they both have the req'd umph and the superflex
