Harbor Freight sells this hose roller for $20 / $10 or $12 on sale. The problem is the hose hangs up on the eight fingers, making it difficult to roll up hose. I have bought and modified 4 of them by adding 3/8" hoops I bent around an old 15" wheel. They work great after adding the hoops. Here are photos of before and after adding hoops.
