Updated Wheel-Mounted Winder For Old Fence Wire
Last winter FARM SHOW published a story on how I used one of the rear wheels on my tractor to make a wheel-mounted winder for old fence wire (Vol. 42, No. 2). I screwed four 10-in. long pipes to studs on the wheels and then jacked up the wheel and put the tractor in gear. It works great and results in neat, reusable wire rolls.
    I recently needed to wind about 300 ft. of fence and decided to expand the concept. I inserted 3-ft. lengths of 1-in. dia. pipe into each of the four original pipes, then slid on a plywood board with holes drilled into it to match the pipes. Within 10 min. I had all 300 ft. of fence neatly rolled. Then I just knocked the board off the pipes and slipped the wire roll off.
