Best New Safety Product or Innovation” Agfest 2015
Joint winners 
1) REEL-EASY UNCOILER – created by Southern Wire (Perth WA) being exhibited by MJ Cook agricultural supplies at N 41
It removes the need to lift the coil of wire onto a dispenser or the traditional wire-spinner, as well as can act as a trolley for wheeling the wire to a destination or onto the ute, plus acts as a simple unwinder of the wire when dispensing it. It decreases the risk of musculoskeletal damage to backs and shoulders when manual handling the wire and traditional wire spinner.
