who uses a wench to lower netting?

Interested in setting up an easier way to raise and lower our netting in a windy area. I’m not sure what kind of wench or even where to get it? Any advice on your setup would be greatly appreciated. Redoing the poles right because those aluminum Pball poles didn’t work for us.

Any heavy duty(10,000lb) wench should work fine. Simply attach it to the pole base at each corner, as well as one in the center. Then attach a settle cable along the top length of the net and run each end to a wench

Give me a buzz I have alot of experience with wind and netting. contact me via facebook or call.

See if you can find some 7" dia drill pipe 3/8" wall thickness those usually are cheap and strong as hell. Depending on net height you can get 2 20ft poles off one 40ft stick. www.e-rigging.com for wire and accessories. Fulton 3700 lb wenches works well too.

Contact me so I can find out what specific needs you have.

Which type of cables and diameters are you using?

Any big differences for years of use for stainless steel and galvanized cables?
