Woven Wire Fencing Hack

If you’ve worked with rolls of woven wire fencing, you know how heavy they can be and how awkward it can be to try to unroll and set up. Repairman Jared decided to build his own solution, a rig he can hook to his tracker to hold the roll and make it easy to unroll.

Here’s the swivel hook Jared used. He also suggests searching for “chain swivel.” Just  make sure its rated at over 250-500lb so it does not break from the strain.

Jared can attach the fence at one end and drive the tractor along the fence line to unroll it. Or he can set the tractor at one end, and pull the fence through narrow spaces between trees.

For those of you without a tractor, consider using the base and pole idea for holding the fence. Then unroll it like you would a roll of paper towels.
