But while there is more than one
way to do it, there are a couple of
tools that make stretching fences a
whole lot easier.
Introduced in the 1940s by the
Dutton-Lainson Company, Goldenrod®
has become synonymous with ‘fence
stretcher.’ The Goldenrod Fence
Stretcher-Splicer can be used to
stretch, splice, staple, raise, and drawdown
fencing both smooth, high tensile,
and barbed wire fences.
All models of the Goldenrod Fence
Stretcher-Splicer are equipped with
hardened guides and clamps that grip
wire fi rmly without causing damage.
The one-piece handle and ergonomic
rounded handle edges make each
model less awkward and more comfortable
The standard model 400 features a
stationary hook that holds the wire in
place and a ratcheting traveler hook
that climbs the bar, stretching the
wire to the right, where it needs to
be, with ease.
For more on the model 400 and other
models, visit www.dutton-lainson.com
Stay Tuff Smooth Wire Puller
The Stay Tuff Smooth Wire Puller
comes with a 4-foot chain allowing
plenty of room for tightening
a fence or splicing
a broken fence. Its hardened
jaws can be used on
both high tensile and
low tensile wire.
