Do yourself a favor get a set of www.Tidweld.com reels. I have a set and there is nothing else like them. Gerald tidwell makes a hell of a nice product and will go out of his way for his customers. He even meet up with my on a sunday just to get a $6 set of fusion solder lugs for my reels.

My only problem is Gerald told me they hold 160' of 1/0 lead. So I bought a 160' of 1/0 direct wire cable. After winding it all on there, I saw I could have easly gotten 200' on them. And most likely 175' of 2/0 cable.

I plow snow with my welding rig so I was concerned that the brake wouldn't hold with the constand slamming into snow. The reels never rotated, all I saw was the last 1' of lead sways around a little.

Here is one thing that sold me on them. He has the largest slip ring of any reel out there. Its rated at 600 amps. He also used carbon electric grease on all connections. So they are truely maintence free. He is a 798 pipeliner with 40 years of experince, so these reels where built to last in the harshness of the pipeline world. I am going to be ordering another set of his reels here shortly for my Sa-250 welding trailer. He only has sold a few sets of his reels in MD, mostly to 798 guys. So everywhere I go I get people asking me where did I get those reels. A buddy of mine riped his reelcraft reels right off his truck and bought a set a soon as he saw mine.

I Had chosen gerald tidweld reels. They are way better bang of cash plus I wont have the hassle of wiring the remote and electric up. Heck I even get to add on my remote and air hose wich is a major plus for me becuse I had to go way out I mean Way out. The sooner they pay for themselves the sooner I gain cash in my pockets. They are a around $1,000.00 In the differnce in between them But Who would not want to buy the extra cords of 3 wire electric and remote for the price of reel itself or all in a package. I aplogize if I had offened anyone but I cannot walk away from a deal and package such as Tidweld offers. There you have it and Hats off to Xtreme Fabrication For intruding me into these products..

I won't promote any product unless I love it. I will make a whole new post here when I get a chance to take pictures of my reels on my rig.
