Rotary Clotheslines

Rotary clotheslines are a popular choice among Kiwi homeowners for their reliability and convenience. With their large line space, they are perfect for families who do a lot of washing or people who want to be able to dry sheets and towels outside rather than using a drier.

Choose from a fixed head or folding head clotheslines

The original rotary clotheslines were typically fixed head hoists, which were put into the ground and formed a permanent part of the outdoor section.

As sections became smaller and space was at more of a premium, folding head clotheslines became more popular. These can be folded down when not in use and can also be removed easily to clear the space in your garden.

Folding head washing lines come in a variety of powder-coated colours, while fixed-head washing lines tend to be a more traditional galvanised steel.

Both types range up to four or five metres in diameter, but fixed head clotheslines offer more line space.

Hills Rotary Clotheslines

Hills clotheslines have been a staple of New Zealand and Australian backyards since the 1940s and they are still going strong today.

The heritage hoist clothesline listed below is one of the brand’s most popular choices and is ideal for people who do a lot of washing. You can even easily hang king-size sheets on the line space offered by this clothesline. Made from galvanised steel and galvanised steel wire, these lines are very durable, which is reflected in their 10-year warranty.

Installing a rotary clothesline

Installing a rotary clothesline can be a DIY job. See our Install a Galvanised Clothesline Video. You need to dig a hole of appropriate depth, sink your ground socket and then concrete it in place making sure your washing line will be straight. Once the concrete is dry, you can put the main pole into the ground socket and then set up your line and tension the wires accordingly.
