Pto-Driven Wire Roller
Edward Houle, Pickardville, Alberta, can roll up a half mile of 4-wire fence in a couple hours with his home-built wire roller that he built for $75.
He pto-drives an old automotive rear end (Houle notes that a truck's 4:1 gear ratio would be ideal) with a wire spool on either end of the axle. The center portion of each of the two spools is made with 20? angled pipes that slope toward the center. The end disc on each spool slips off by removing three nuts. The angled piping on the spools makes it easy to slip off the wire rolls. Each spool holds up to a half mile of wire.
"It really works like a charm," says Houle.
