Pressure Hose Reel Attached To Top Of Portable Air Compressor
Aaron Marley, Nokomis, Ill.: When Marley wants to air up a tire on a piece of farm equipment, he just pulls out a pressure hose from a reel that he attached to the top of his portable air compressor.
  "I can reach out 50 ft. with the hose without having to pull the compressor around with me. The reel actually could hold as much as 100 ft. of hose," he says.
