We made these reels to wind up our polywire after we are done grazing our cows. They are made out of old shovel handles, small bucket lids, 18-inch ready rod, and locking nuts and washers.

With the battery powered drill in one hand and the handle in the other, one person can quickly wind up the fence. The bucket lids have notches where you can put the end of the wire in when done winding. We think this works better than the hand crank reels.
