The best heavy duty retractable clothes line is a question we get asked a lot and as there are many models and styles of retractable and retracting clothes lines, here are a few tips to help you choosing the best model for your situation.
Tips on choosing the best heavy duty retractable clothesline:
Extension: How far out does the clothesline need to extend to?
Most modern retractable lines extend to 6.5 metres.
During our in house testing of all current retractable and retracting style clotheslines, we did find that the more they cost the better they performed and operated and in particular the Austral Retractaway range was the standout.
1. Austral Retractaway 40
This clothesline has 5 lines that can extend up to 8m. It is fully Australian made and owned with all steel constructions.
There are lots of mounting options as you can choose to buy ground mount kits, mount bars and ground sockets.
This has been a big seller for years and is a good heavy duty clothesline that you feel good about buying when you are supporting an Australian business.
2. Hills 5 Line Retracting Clothesline
This clothesline is a part of Hills most recent collection which came out in 2022.
It can extend up to 6.75m has 5 lines and has many mounting options (just like the Austral), ground mount kits, sockets and a mount bar.
Hills has been a big clothesline brand for many years that has a good reputation for a reason and their new clotheslines have been a huge upgrade in quality from their past products.
3. Hills 7 Line Retracting Clothesline
This Hills product is the big brother of the Hills 5 Line.
This instead has 7 lines which will suit a family much better.
Even though it is bigger it still has great tension. This will be a great option for families who do lots of washing.
