Create a purple martin colony in your own backyard or enlarge your existing one with the Purple Martin SuperGourd Starter System with 8 Gourds.  The STAR-ter 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.   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 STAR-ter 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.
The STAR-ter Economy Gourd System is available with eight 2-1/8 round-holed SuperGourds or with eight crescent-holed gourds. The crescent shaped holes are advisable if you have starlings in the area that will compete with the martins for nesting.  All gourd racks and gourd rack systems come with complete instructions.  Assembly required.
