Perfect for a family of 2 - 3 people.

The Hills Rotary 6 Hoist Washing Line belongs to a family of rotary clothes airers that are considered to be the finest rotary clotheslines in the world. It is a medium sized, 6 line, folding clothes line, giving a total of 36 metres of drying line. In Australia "Hills hoist" is the term used to describe a rotary airer (much as we might use the word Hoover instead of vacuum cleaner) and these high quality products are now available in the UK. This washing line comes assembled and pre-wired, ready to install. Put your garden to use and dry your laundry with no cost of electricity and no risk of damp to your walls.

Strong and reliable

The Rotary 6 Hills hoist is the smallest member of the family of 3 Hills rotary airers that we offer. It requires an open space at least 3.9 metres wide (2.9 metres diameter for the airer and a further 0.5 metres of clearance all around). The 36 metres of line and large span between arms allows the airer to hold double size sheets. So now you can dry a medium family wash in one go.

The airer is made from powder coated, rust resistant, high grade steel tubing which is galvanized with zinc for complete protection from the elements. It has a traditional winding handle mechanism (so no back breaking lifting required to erect it). The line is a premium grade polycore with 22 polyester filaments braded and sheathed in UV stabilised plastic.

The Rotary 6 comes with a ground socket, and installation instructions. The airer is best mounted in a concrete base to ensure a stable footing - clear diagrams are supplied to make this an easy process. The washing line is available in green or blue - please choose at the bottom of this page.

Hills Handy Hints

  • One of the benefits of a Rotary Hoist is that it spins naturally in the breeze, allowing the sun to shine on all your clothes and speed up drying time.
  • Raise your hoist for maximum drying efficiency and to ensure clearance for longer items. The wind brake assists in the pegging and unpegging of clothes on windy days by restricting the free rotation of the clothesline. It can be engaging by winding the "˜head "TM of the hoist fully down.
  • Place smaller items of clothing on the lines nearest the centre and work your way outwards for larger items. When hanging thick or bulky items, you may hang the item over more than one line.
  • When you do not expect to fill the capacity of your hoist, hang your clothes on the outer lines, this will allow your clothesline to spin more easily.
