HIWER Reel

  • HIWER Reel
  • HIWER Reel in use
Hiwer Row Cover Machine

The Hiwer reel can roll/unroll canvases over a large area and is used with the Hiwer system. Unlike special reel, this one does not dismantle. Once polyethylene/floating row covers are rolled onto the reel, the reel can be taken off the machine for storage. 

The spool is 5’ in diameter and can support up to 1 100 lbs (500 kg). As a guideline, a reel with one hectare of dry floating row cover weighs about 540 lbs (250 kg). Once wet the weight doubles.
