The ball valve is your variable speed / safety control. It should be used more as a safety shut off, than a speed control. It is best to control the speed from the hydraulics on the tractor. 

 Our wire winder's hydraulic motor, provides ample power for hard jobs, like pulling
barbed wire through tall grass. This motor will create roughly 12 horse power, that will easily pull old wire up out of the grass and trash that collects in a fence line over the years.

Standard Features and operation:

  • Always regulate speed of this unit from the hydraulics on tractor. 
  • Always plug valve hose into power side of hydraulics.
  • Designed for smooth or barbed wire or light cable.
  • designed to pull wire in to unit ( always have a weight on the end of the wire. ) A short piece of log chain or the best is, the window weights out of old houses.
  •  Winder frame converts for Category 1, Category 2 & Category 3 narrow 3 point mounts (special orders upon request).
  • Removable yellow split reel. Hand spun smooth steel, designed with safety in mind.
  • Holds 1/2 mile of barbed or 1 mile of smooth wire.
  • Replaceable moly-impregnated polyethylene bushings on shaft to prevent wear. This bushing has proven to last for years of performance in the field.
  • Hydraulic motor creates 12 horse power under full load.
  • 1/2" male pipe ends on hydraulic hose's ( we do not include hose tips )
  • Always, start slow and stop slow, to prevent damage to lovejoy coupler between motor and drive shaft. With the inertia of the spinning reel, a fast stop can cause damage to the coupler. This is not common, but can happen if the wire winder is not operated correctly.

Don't forget to ask about our wire guide, which can be added to your 3 point wire winder ($129.00).

The Wire Guide can be added to any new or existing Pro-Tatch wire winder, no matter its age. 

This option has become very popular with anyone using our hydraulic wire winders.

The wire guide can be used on all units including the Magnum, shown above, with the dual cone reels.

The yellow vertical bars out in front of the reel on the guide, are roller sleeves that will keep any type of wire rolling between the guide arms. These are a must when rolling barbed wire.

Manufactured of steel with a comfort grip handle, baked on powder coat finish, this unit is designed to last for the life of your winder.

I use a Hotwood's wire winder because they work, thats it!

Its been 30 plus years since we built the very first wire winder, here at Hotwood's and we would like to sincerely thank all the wonderful farmers and ranchers across the world that have made this wire winder dream a reality.

We cannot show you all of them, but this is a few of our customers, that have stopped by over the years in our Grand Island, Nebraska location to pick up their wire winders. 

Hotwood's, keeping America rolling with jobs, and shipping world wide for 30 plus years.
