One-man wiring

Putting up barbed-wire fence is easier with Lloyd Babcock's new Wire Wagon trailer. Pulled by a small tractor or pickup, the unit holds up to five spools of wire and lays them on the ground 2 ft. apart, as you drive parallel to the fencerow. Each spool is loaded simply in an individual compartment by dropping it over a spindle. Wire is fed (directed left or right) through guides.

The unit features a large built-in tool storage compartment. The compact trailer is 13 ft. long, 3 ft. high and 5_1/2 ft. wide. Rated axle is 3,500 lbs., and the wagon weighs up to 1 ton fully loaded. Price: 2,850 dollars plus shipping. Contact Wire Wagon Inc., Dept. FIN, 3247 E. Lombard, Springfield, MO 65802, 877/887-9417 (toll-free).
