Pro-Tatch Hydraulic Wire Winder

Rugged construction, ease of use and superior performance have made Pro-Tatch® the best selling wire winder on the market. The Pro-Tatch hydraulic wire winder is 100% Full-Satisfaction Guaranteed. 

The Pro-Tatch wire winder can be mounted and operated by one person. To wind, just park your vehicle, tie a weight on far end of wire to prevent recoil (a short length of chain works well), and pull wire toward you. When the reel is full, tie the roll with 4 retainer wires held by pre-drilled holes at the edges of the reel. The reel splits easily by spinning the nut off the 1" shaft, and the roll lifts away without binding. To unwind wire, tie wire to a post, set your vehicle's hydraulic control lever to the "float" position and drive forward to unwind.

A ball valve provides infinitely variable speed control. The smooth-operating valve allows you to easily select any rotational speed from fast down to creep, as well as completely stopped. The wire winder's hydraulic motor provides ample power for hard jobs like pulling barbed wire through tall grass or vines. Even the heaviest underbrush is no match for the Pro-Tatch winder.

  • “We rolled up 15,000 feet of barbed wire, some of which had to be pulled out of vines and heavy vegetation. The Pro-Tatch worked perfectly every time and saved us countless hours of back breaking work rolling it by hand… My advice is, buy it.”

    – Tim S., TX

The winder rolls barbed or smooth wire, light cable, hose, tubing, rope or similar materials. Holds 1/2 mile of barbed wire or 1 mile of smooth wire. (Click here if you need a larger winder.)

The 20" diameter, 12 gauge steel wire winder drum is virtually indestructible, and mounts on a heavy duty frame constructed of 11 gauge, 3" square tube. Long life, replaceable, moly-impregnated poly bushings prevent wear to steel parts.

After wire has been rolled up on the Pro-Tatch winder, it can easily be put back on the spool for unwinding. Just put your hydraulic lever in "float" position and drive... the circulation of hydraulic fluid through the motor provides perfect resistance to keep the reel from overspinning. If you're using a skid steer loader without a hydraulic "float" position, you can connect the Pro-Tatch's two hose ends together (using your own adapter) for the same effect.

The Pro-Tatch winder can be purchased with a 3/8"-thick steel plate Universal Mount, a Bale Bed Mount, or a quick-tach mount for 3-point tractor hitches (choose from Category I, Cat. II, or Cat. III narrow.) The 3-point tractor hitch mount can be converted to fit a Cat. 1, 2 or 3 Narrow by simply changing the bottom pin size and configuration.

Note: The Cat. 1 will include 7/8" bottom pins and no top pin (customer supplied.) The Cat. 2 will include 1-1/8" pins bottom pins and no top pin (customer supplied.) Questions on what category you might need? Cat. 1: Up to 65HP tractors. Pin size 7/8". Cat. II: 65HP to 125HP tractors. Pin size 1-1/8". Cat. III Narrow: 125HP to 200HP tractors. Pin size 1-1/8". This can vary depending on tractor manufacturer but in most cases will be accurate for what you need. Custom mounts can be fabricated with short lead time for any mounting requirements, including bale carriers and skid loaders.

  • Works very well
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We use it for rolling up used barb wire from fences we are taking down, it worked very well for this application. The thing that we really like about it is being able to remove the roll from the winder without needing a separate spool for each roll. We built a mount to attach it to a skid steer loader, and we installed a flow control to limit speed.

  • Worth twice the price
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The Pro-Tatch winder is fast, easy to use, nice to work with. Smooth startup prevents breakage. Built to last, with replaceable wear bushings. It would be a great value even at twice the price.

  • 1000 miles so far
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We’ve used your wire winder for 18 months and have wound up right around 1000 miles of wire. It’s done a lot of work for us and held up incredibly well. Send us a pair of bushings, and we also want to buy a second winder.

  • More than 5 stars
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Five stars aren't enough. If you have much wire to wind up, it will pay for itself in the first week of use. My brother now uses the Pro-Tatch we got twelve years ago, so I ordered another.

  • Solid machine
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have not used the wire winder yet, but so far it seems to be a very solid machine. It is easy and quick to put together. It’s made of thick steel and very sturdy. I will write a full review after I put it to work.
