Form a martin colony in your own backyard or add to your existing one with the Purple Martin SuperGourd Rack System without Gourds.  The rack features a 2-inch-square, high-tensile strength aluminum two-piece pole that is now 14 feet tall above ground when installed.  The gourd hub and arms accommodate 8 gourds, and raise and lower with a 2-pulley rope & pulley lanyard system(included).   Pre-installed nylon glide buttons in the hub assure squeak-free operation.  The aluminum gourd arms attach to the hub using stainless steel hardware.

The gourd rack comes with a 42 ground stake; a two-piece high-tensile strength square aluminum pole; two 36 top perches; a plastic pole cap; a rope winder with attached stainless steel hardware; polyester rope with attached eyebolts and pulleys; a hub; gourd-hanging arms; and all the hardware necessary for installing the rack (3 bags of concrete mix not included). 

Square poles are superior in strength to customary round martin poles.  A square pole also makes it easy to align gourds correctly when raising and lowering the system.

This rack will work with any vertical-hanging gourd, natural or plastic.  When hanging SuperGourds (or natural gourds) on this rack you will need eight 14-inch-long pieces of #10, or #12 plastic-coated, solid copper wire (not included).  All gourd racks and gourd rack systems come with complete instructions.  Assembly required.

If you’re new to being a martin landlord you might consider adding this book with your order written by the designer of this product.  It’s full of helpful tips for landlords.

Purple Martin 8 Rack System without Gourds

Nina Koehler
Could use some modifications

There is too much slop in the lines when hoisting and lowering. The sailor in me believes this could be addressed easily with a padeye or some sort of guide for the line midway down. Also, it would be helpful to offer or sell an additional line bracket for placement for a predator guard.
