Check it out: How a Northern Ireland farmer deals with tile tangles
Tangles can be one of the most awkward parts of applying drainage tile.
But one farmer in Northern Island has taken a DIY approach to solving this issue by creating a custom tool that allowed him to lay tile without the tangles. Now, he’s taking it national.
Easi-Reel is designed for a “one-man operation” and can handle coils of up to 72 feet. Its design allows users to load the coil upright, then lay it down on a flexible turntable that allows the tile to be continuously fed through as it moves along.
Donal O’Donovan of Coleraine, Northern Ireland, originally created the Easi-Reel for himself, but after word of his creation got around, requests came pouring in – and he soon created about 30 in half a year.
Now, Easi-Reel has its own site and is ready to serve drainage contractors in the area. So far, delivery is only to other parts of the U.K. as well as Ireland.
