I need to put a Beverage over an area that is flat but full of
implementable brush of weeds, tan tan, cacha, and cactus. A Brush Hog
would be great to cut a path but actually the brush would keep a wire at
least 5 feet above ground if I could get across it. About 750 feet
down range is a clearance for the termination etc...but is there anyway
to get a wire 750 feet down wind? 100 feet up is one thing but can
anything launch a fishing line with a down range distance of 750 feet.
Which device would have the greatest thrown power to make this
I have even considered renting one of the islands sightseeing
helicopters for a few minutes to pull the wire.
