Wire Roller Mounts On ATV
Using square steel tubing and 1-in. dia. pipe, Dave Elmquist, Mayerthorpe, Alberta, built a low-cost, removable barbed wire roller for his Honda 450 ATV.
  "It works great for putting up fences on land that has been recently cleared of trees," says Elmquist. "I place the wire roll vertically onto the unroller and it spins like a top as I drive forward."
  The roller consists of a welded-together steel bracket equipped with two 1-in. dia. pipes that lie horizontally over the ATV's rear rack and slide over a pair of steel rods with hooks on the end that catch on the rack. Holes drilled into both the pipes and rods allow them to be pinned together.
  "When I stop the ATV, the wire stops, thus avoiding tangling the wire," says Elmquist. "I hang a big hammer and other tools in metal loops that I welded onto the bracket. It takes only about 10 seconds to remove the roller."
