A Grand Island, Neb., company has introduced a new gas-powered wire winder.
Pro-Tatch/Hotwoods has been manufacturing three-point winders for more than 26 years and has about 17,000 units in the field.
The latest model works best for the farmer or rancher who is spread out and does not want to use a tractor to travel between fencing locations, according to firm president Kevin Houtwed, and it works off the back of the pickup or on the ground.
The Pro-Tatch wire winder has a 5.5 horsepower Honda gas engine, reusable reel that holds a half mile of barbed wire or a mile of smooth wire. Solid reels are available. The new unit has a wire guide available for the company’s new or old three-point winders new or old.
