Device Rolls Up Plastic Irrigation Pipe
Here's a device I built to roll up plastic irrigation pipe. It could also be used to roll up fence wire.
  I mounted a tire and wheel on a frame fitted with 3-pt. brackets. The tire is held securely in place on one side by an auto hub on an arm. The tire is friction-driven by a 2-in. dia. pipe that turns against it. The pipe mounts on pillow block bearings and is driven by a small hydraulic motor that connects to tractor hydraulics.
  The plastic is rolled up on a spool with a concave disc blade at either end. The spool simply bolts to the lug holes on the wheel.
