The three fans we use on the golf course must be taken in for storage each fall and then hauled back onto the course in the spring. Previously this was a harrowing and hazardous job, as we swung each fan onto a trailer and then hoisted it up by a chain once out on location.
Fortunately, over the winter, Don Robel came up with a simpler and safer way to transport the fans. Don fabricated a pair of devices which attach to our front end loader forks. The fans can now be picked up from their storage pole, and transported securely by one person, without ever touching the ground, or swinging around like a 500 pound pendulum.
Ever looking to improve the operation, Don has already come up with a few modifications for this great device which we'll try when we bring the fans in for storage this fall.
