Inexpensive Wire Roller
This spring I had to remove a mile of 4-wire fence in a hurry and needed a way to roll up the wire. I came up with this quick and inexpensive wire roller. I bolted three 2 by 4's to the sides of a barrel, equally spaced so the barrel would roll evenly.
To start a roll, you loop the wire around the barrel loosely and tie it, then you just push the barrel forward over the wire lying on the ground. I found I could roll up wire very quickly. Once you think there's enough wire on the barrel to make a good sized roll you tie it off and tip up the barrel and step down on the wire to push the roll off.
