pole assembly with a plastic pyramid pole cap and two solid 3/8" top
Aluminum pole, aluminum ground stake, aluminum hub brackets, assembled
to aluminum angle sides using stainless steel hardware. Eighteen high-strength 3/8" aluminum gourd arms.
Dimensions: Two-inch square high-tensile strength two-piece aluminum pole and stands 14-feet above the ground when installed. Square poles are superior in strength to round martin poles.
Gourd Arms: Eighteen 3/8" solid aluminum horizontal arms. Arms for
"Deluxe" and "K-Series" style gourd racks have a 90-degree bend on the
end that slips into the hub bracket. There are three configurations;
straight that slip into the single hole on the hub bracket, and left and
right, which are paired in an adjacent side of the hub. The horizontal
gourd arms have a drilled hole at the end of the arm. Slip your gourd
onto the arm and insert your supplied stainless hitch pin. The pin will
keep your gourd from falling off.
Any plastic or natural gourd can be fitted to these horizontal-style
gourd arms. If your gourds are not already drilled front to back in the
upper neck, use a 13/32" drill bit to enlarge the hanging holes.
Four-part pulley system:
Each of the pulleys carries a 1/4 of the load. If your 18 gourds and
hub weigh a total of 72 pounds, you are pulling around 18 pounds.
Always wear a good pair of grippy gloves when raising or lowering any
We highly recommend you extend the height of the pole by two-feet with the Extension Piece
. When adding height to the pole your rope will become too short consider replacing your rope with a 55' rope
Climbing Predator Protection: An optional pole guard (PGS or EZ2) that fits a square pole is available.
