Winner in: 2009

Suncast Corporation’s No Crank Water Powered Hose Reel uses an ingenious rewind mechanism — a 3-piston water powered hydraulic pump – to facilitate the storage of hoses. You can now neatly and effortlessly rewind your garden hose with the simple flip of a lever. Suncast has been selling this product since 2008, launching them to the dominant market share leader in the hose reel category. The No Crank hose reel can be found at many major retailers including Lowes, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, Costco and more. This hose reel category has seen the most growth over the years, while other systems have remained near stagnant.
