Homemade hops equipment

This is the small square hay bale rack wagon my dad and I repurposed into a hopyard cabling/stringing/harvesting piece of equipment last year. By bolting and welding on a platform, with a floor at 13 feet high off the ground, we’re able to pull it up and down the rows of hops to accomplish several tasks at the height of the upper cables. Each of the hopyard poles are 18 feet high off the ground with a cable strung north and south along each row.
