Expandable 6 Rack (without gourds) (DGR6H)

Features: It features a four-part pulley system for easy raising and lowering.  The gourd arms slip easily in and out of the all-aluminum, assembled hub, which has nylon glide tabs for squeak-free operation. Also included; six 3/8” high-strength aluminum arms; 45-feet of polyester rope; an aluminum rope cleat; and a 2-inch-square aluminum pole assembly with a plastic pyramid pole cap and two solid 3/8" top perch rods. 

Materials: Aluminum pole, aluminum ground stake, aluminum hub brackets, assembled to aluminum angle sides using stainless steel hardware.  Six 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: Six 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.

Gourd Accommodation: 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 6 gourds and hub weigh a total of 30 pounds, you are pulling around 5 pounds.  Always wear a good pair of grippy gloves when raising or lowering any gourd rack.

Extras:  This 6-arm rack comes with a hub designed to accept 6 additional arms on a lower tier in the future should your desire or conditions warrant it. You do not need to remove the hub from the pole to assemble this upgrade.  (Upgrade Kit)  There is also a 6 up 18 Kit available, you will need to remove the hub from the pole to add this upgrade.

Climbing Predator Protection:  An optional pole guard (PGS or EZ2) that fits a square pole is available.
