Customers frequently mention how much effort their set net roller saves them, and how much more productive their fishing is. This might just pay for itself in money you save not going to the chiropractor! As with all of our gillnet products, this roller was designed in collaboration with fishermen, and the basic design has been in use on set net sites for over 30 years.
The roller is equipped with a 4x4 hub to engage and disengage the motor, and comes with a compact, corrosion resistant directional valve mounted directly to the roller. This simplifies plumbing and maintenance, and fewer fittings mean fewer potential leak points. Self-lubricating bushings support both ends of roller, and are easily accessed when service is needed. The one-piece rubber vulcanization on core reduces web snag potential compared to the multi-piece vulcanization process used on some rollers.
Side frames are made from heavy duty cast aluminum, and are available in a standard or roller fairlead configuration. Standard height from roller to top of side frame is approximately 9”, with custom heights available. Hinging foot brackets are standard and allow roller to be hinged into the boat when working alongside tenders. Foot brackets also provide convenient mounting points when installing roller on skiff, and facilitate easy removal of roller for off-season storage.
When ordered with our Honda 5.5 power pack and hose/fitting set, you have a turnkey package ready to fish! Our standard hose/fitting set includes two each 15’ hoses and quick-connect fittings to couple roller to power pack.
