 Shown above, Hotwood's High Tensile Wire Winder, designed to be used with high tensile wire. This reel has been asked for for years, and here it is.

The high tensile kit, can be adapted to any of our 3 point wire winders.

You do not need to have a wire guide as shown in these pictures to make it work, but it is a very popular option that makes the job much easier.

NOTE:  When ordering a high tensile complete kit, the manual wire guide, is included as shown above.

High Tensile Complete Conversion Kit

If you currently have one of our earlier wire winders that the motor mount arm is welded solid to the tool bar, you will need to have a local fab shop, cut that motor mount arm and add our arm extension, to give the clearance needed to operate the larger reel, with the manual guide arm. ( This can be done by the customer also )

 However, if you do not order the manual wire guide, you can order the red reel alone to use on that winder and it will perform perfectly for you as your yellow split reel has for years.

Kit will include:

(1) High tensile red reel.

(1) Manual wire guide with mounting hardware.

(1) 3 1/2" motor mount arm extender with hardware ( added for reel clearance )

This unit is very easy to install ( less than 20 minutes with bolt on, longer if you currently own the older welded arm unit, and need to cut and weld. )

 Once it is installed you do not need to ever take the 3 1/2” motor mount arm extender off the unit. Your winder will perform perfectly with it in place with any reel you put on it.

Features on the reel: Reel splits to load and unload rolls of wire.

Reel is designed to unroll new rolls of high tensile wire that you would purchase in a store.

Reel has 1 larger access hole to use as a tie off before starting to pull wire. (as shown in photo above )

Reel has 4 tie wire locaters on each side of the reel just like the yellow split reel to place your tie wires in pryer to rolling wire. (as shown in photo below)

Reel is tapered from 19” to 18 1/4” to make sliding wire on and off easier.

Reel fits on standard 1” shaft that has been used on our wire winders for over 28 years.

Reel is spun from solid steel to assure the highest quality we can manufacture and give you years of trouble free use.

The wire guide is manufactured from solid steel, with pipe rollers to make pulling that wire in and guiding it with the handle a very easy and safe function.

The extension on the motor mount arm is shown below. This is an easy bolt in if your winder is one of our later models that features the bolt on arm. Cutting and welding will apply if you have an older unit that is welded solid on the tool bar. This extension needs to be added to give the clearance needed to operate the manual wire guide.

Overall outside dimension of the reel is 25”.

Reel weighs 51 pounds. ( empty )

The spacing is 4 3/4” wide. This will accommodate the new rolls of high tensile wire.

Like all our products the unit is painted with premium powder coat paint to assure the finest finish we can provide.

This unit functions and can be operated exactly like our other hydraulic units.

Reel splits to load and unload any and all wire.

Park your tractor in one spot and pull wire towards you.

Place a weight on the end of the wire before you begin rolling.

When unrolling, put your tractor hydraulics in float position and tie your wire to the post where you are starting from and drive slowly away, letting the wire unroll as you go. You can also pull the wire away from the tractor if you do not want to drive to unroll. 

Hotwoods High Tensile Reel is for ideal anyone who has livestock of any kind, vineyards or does any kind of trellis wiring for gardening. We see them being used for many different applications.

If you have problems with deer or any large wildlife breaking down your fence, you can eliminate most of that by using high tensile wire.

All High Tensile units are UPS shippable. ( Unassembled )

However they can be shipped by truck freight  completely assembled.
