Quickfencer Installs Smooth, Barbed Or Woven Wires
Brewer and Rawcliffe built and patented their first Quickfencer model QF50 nearly 15 years ago and introduced it to farmers in Europe. Over the years the machine won more than a dozen design and engineering awards while being sold throughout Europe and Australia. In 2015 Bare Management, Inc., of Wisconsin took over U.S. and Canadian patents for the machine, then spent several months upgrading and re-defining it for those markets.
Bare Management’s Cara Champeny says the all new USA-made Standard 50 Quickfencer is so-named because it handles 50-in. tall woven wire and is capable of adding a single strand of barbed wire on top of the woven. “Our machine is designed to simplify a tough and labor-intensive farm job. It can more than double the amount of fence that a three-person crew can build in one day,” Champeny says.
The Standard 50, which sells for $5,000, can handle two rolls of 330-ft., 1000-ft. or 1,320-ft. woven wire at once. It mounts on tractors using a Cat III front-end or rear-mount 3 pt. hitch and can also be adapted for skid steers. The machine rolls out woven wire with light tension, then it’s tightened by hand using a tension bar on a spring bolt mechanism. Barbed wire is unrolled fully tensioned. Optional attachments for barbed wire, smooth wire, and up to 8-ft. tall woven wire make the Standard 50 even more versatile. The QF5 arm can unroll up to 5 strands of barbed wire without tangling. The QF8 attachment handles woven, smooth or up to 6 spiders of barbed wire fencing up to 8-ft. tall. Champeny says that option, which is available on special order for delivery in 3 weeks, has been especially popular for commerical game farms that require tall fences for their stock.
Bare Management manufactures and distributes the Quickfencer from Milwaukee, Wisc. Champeny says their equipment is built strong and made to last. The Standard 50 model weighs 1,300 lbs., the barbed wire attachment weighs 500 lbs., and the quick-clamp attachment weighs 800 lbs. The company sells direct to customers without dealers to keep prices competitive.
