Macnaught’s Next Generation: NEW Retracta R3 series launched at Agquip

Over the decades the original Retracta poly reel has built a desirable reputation worldwide for performance and reliability. Through this, and with a long history of innovation by design, Macnaught has ?now developed an exciting new range of Retracta reels specifically designed and engineered for the most demanding industrial applications and environments.

Manufactured in Australia, it was only natural that the new R3 Retracta series made its debut at this years Agquip. At the heart of this innovation is the patented RACR® ‘Retracta Adjustable Control Return’ system supplied on all R3-P+ models. This world-first control return system offers not only the safety of slowing the return speed of the hose when released but goes beyond the simple one size fits all ‘slow return’ approach, by offering true control to the user, by setting the speed of return to suit their individual requirements.

For decades the Retracta reel has been the benchmark in industrial hose reels. In addition to the new R3’s inherent durability, the development of innovative functionality has been the key to producing a premium product suitable for the most diverse of applications. The new R3 series caters to air, water, oil, grease or oxy-acetylene applications.

To enhance a product recognised as “best in class” takes dedication and attention to detail. The new R3 offers those enhancements and provides the user with the simplicity of use and confidence in performance, through the new integrated handle, high-wear resistance mouth design, overrun protection on spring and increased internal capacity.

Innovation has always been at the center of the Macnaught success story and it’s the platform for developing our expanded Retracta range. At Macnaught, we call it “Innovation by design”. Because we know that innovation is the only way to stay ahead. ­­
