400mm Lift Kit for Caterpillar Tunnels
$16.80 – $350.25 AUD excl gst
Options for 15m and 30m Caterpillar Tunnels
Use the swaged end Lift Kit to raise the overall height of your Caterpillar Tunnel 400mm. Simply TEK screw the additional pipe lengths onto the bottom of your bows and, voila, your tunnel is 400mm taller! It’s great for trellised crops like tomatoes or cucumbers. It also makes your outer beds more accessible. The kit uses the same rebar, anchor plates and carabiners that came with your standard kit. It can actually be retrofitted on a standing tunnel!
Each kit includes: either 22 (for 15m tunnel) or 42 (for 30m tunnel) 475mm pipe pieces (75mm is swedged to slide into the bows), and TEK screws.
Lift Kits work best with a Solid Centre Purlin to stop end hoop tops from being bent inward, alternatively tie off end hoops to the star picket with a second strap or rope before refitting poly-film.
You must use our 8.5m wide plastic with the Lift Kit in order to reach the ground on both sides. The 8.5m wide plastic is now standard on all tunnels, but if you ordered your tunnel before Feb 2019, you may need to order the wider plastic.
