Vineyard Wire Tension Check System

The Fastest Cable Tension Meter

Measuring cable tension, including placement and removal from the cable can be accomplished in under five seconds with the Dillon Quick-Check . Operating the Dillon Quick-Check only requires selecting one of the fifteen different wire sizes and types stored in memory without the need to consult complex lookup tables & conversion charts. The graphically displays the current and target tensions for extremely quick setting of line tension. Current and target tensions are displayed graphically in Check-Tensioning mode for exceedingly rapid setting of line tension. Everything is quick including the infrequent battery changes.
