Ames® Introduces NeverLeak™ Hose Cart
New Aluminum Water System Boasts Durable Design to Eliminate Water Leaks
September 2010 – Ames®, a leading manufacturer of non-powered lawn and garden products, today announces the launch of the NeverLeak™ Hose Cart, the first of its kind poly hose reel cart, featuring a patent pending aluminum water system to help prevent water leaks.
“The number one complaint homeowners have with the typical plastic hose reel is that it can leak,” said Dan Marshall, Director of Marketing & Product Development, Ames. “The NeverLeak Hose Cart features a cast aluminum water system that is eight times stronger than plastic so its threads will not strip or cross thread helping to eliminate water leak problems for good.”
The new NeverLeak Hose Cart is designed to meet best-in-class durability standards to increase product life from season to season. While other plastic and even steel units can become brittle and crack during the winter, the NeverLeak Hose Cart’s aluminum water system is strong enough to withstand temperature drops in cold winter weather and won’t corrode. Consumers will no longer need to worry about replacing or patching up their hose cart year after year because of leaking from weather damage.
The new hose cart features additional design improvements to give homeowners added flexibility and ease of use. With a repositionable aluminum inlet tube, the hose is able to shift as needed to reduce kinking, another common issue faced by users. The added accessory basket, capacity to hold up to 225' of 5/8" hose, and easy-spin crank handle allow the new cart to function as a convenient and comfortable hose storage solution.
The NeverLeak Hose Cart has a stylish brown and tan two-tone finish, and comes with a five-year warranty on the water system and two-year warranty on the poly elements of the cart. The new cart is available at several retailers including, Lowe’s and on Amazon.com for $39.99 - $49.99 in Spring 2011. For more information, please visit http://www.ames.com.
