hydraulic wire winder
Performs exactly like our 3 point mount Magnums, but with a different mount. This uses a 16" square 1/4" plate with 4 mounting holes punched, one in each corner that can be adapted to mount on many different applications. We see many of these being used on skid loaders, bolted to buckets of loaders, flatbeds on pickups etc. This is a great unit to be used as a cleanup winder also. The reel splits in the center by pulling it apart after the reel is full.
  • 3-tie wire locations on the reel for easy unloading

  • 3/4" bearing keeps everything level and prevents bending problems

  • End plate removes easily when you are ready to unload a full reel of wire

Bale Bed Wire Winder

hydraulic wire winder

The all new mounting design makes it possible to mount your hydraulic
wire winder to any hydraulic bale bed on the market today.
This unit performs exactly like any of our other hydraulic wire winders.
Through our research we have found that bale beds will have a
3"x3", 3"x4",3.5"x3.5" or 4"x4" tube that is the arm that carries the bale.
When ordering, always know the size of the tube on the arm of your bale bed.
This will ensure that you receive the mount that fits your bale bed.

This unit is designed to be operated from either side of your truck. It can be operated on the outside of the arm or inside. As you can see, there are many options in the directions of where the reel will set with the way we designed the mount. Hotwoods suggests that you use it on the drivers side of the truck on the inside as shown in the photos. By doing that, you can raise the arm up and over to set your rolled wire on the bed of your truck. This takes a great amount of the work out of handling the heavy rolls of wire. This unit is designed to operate with the same functions as all of our wire winders do and have for years.

bale bed guide armbale bed guide arm

Our standard split reel holds up to 1/2 mile of barbed wire and up to 1 mile of smooth wire.
*unit will come with 10' hoses 1/2" male pipe ends (no quick couplers will be provided)

*unit comes standard with reusable split yellow reel as shown in the photos.

Any & all solid reels that we manufacture will work with this Bale Bed unit.

hydraulic wire winder
Hydraulic Wire Winder - over 16,000 manufactured and in the field.
ProTatch is the First Name in Wire Winders.

Please call about any questions on special mounting of the wire winders shown
or wire winders designed for any size operation.

A Hotwoods customer that had made many reels over the years
to work with his home made wire winder wanted his reels to
work on our gas powered unit. As you see his center tube was
to large and fit very loose over our shaft. So to make it work
perfectly for him we made a spacer tube to fit inside his reel
that slides over our original shaft and it works perfect.
We will make your reels work also if you have already made
or purchased other reels in the past. This is not a difficult
process as all we need is measurements or a reel to work with.

The image on the right shows the spacer tube prior to
installation over the original winder shaft.
After holes are lined up in the drive shaft with the reel
and spacer tube, insert drive pin and you are ready to roll wire.
Hotwoods can manufacture custom solutions to help you get
even the toughest wire rolling jobs done with ease.


Harry Preisendorf from Grand Island, NE purchased
this wire winder from Pro-Tatch 15 years ago.
Harry has added a few modifications such as tool holders
to his winder to make it just right for his operation.
Harry runs around 1600 cows a year in the stocks.
He moves as much as 20 miles of wire a week when
the season hits. Harry has been very happy with the
operation of the winder and the service he has
received from Pro-Tatch Inc.

We recommend using thread sealer tape when installing
the tips on the hoses and also when mounting hoses on motor etc.

Now that our customer Harry has the weight on the end of the wire and his tractor in place he begins to roll the electric fence on this cat 2 wire winder.


This customer from Nebraska shows us how
they cut out hand holes in the solid reels
for ease of handling when the reel is full.
Also when they are rolling smooth wire they
know when the wire is to the edge of the
hand hole they have 2 miles of wire on that reel.

Make sure all fittings are tight before operating your wire winder.

Kevin Houtwed helping load a new 3 point wire winder in Tim Aitkens pickup on a Sunday morning.
Tim contacted Kevin at home and said he needed to pick up fence that day to beat a storm coming in.
Kevin was more than happy to meet Tim at the office on Sunday morning.
