Nine foot patio umbrellas are one of the most popular sizes in outdoor umbrellas. They are very versatile and can cover larger dining tables and even intimate conversation areas. They provide a nice area of shade and if they have a tilting option, they can provide more than ample shade throughout the day no matter what position the sun in at. Umbrellas in the nine foot to ten foot range can be a bit more of a challenge to handle than the 4 to 6.5 foot patio umbrellas, so it is important to get features that can help you manipulate these umbrellas with ease. Many of our 9 foot market umbrellas come with pulley systems that make opening and closing them extremely easy. Other such features are crank lift systems and auto-tilt options which can be found on a number of our aluminum patio umbrellas.
A crank lift system allows you to easily open and close your umbrella by cranking a handle that is attached to the umbrella pole. Crank lift systems allow just about anyone to open and close an umbrella. Some crank lift umbrellas also have an auto-tilt option that allows the umbrella shade to be tilted by simply cranking the handle past the fully open position.
Nine to ten foot patio umbrellas require a substantially weighted base whether they will be placed through a table or free-standing. You can see a table that outlines minimum base sizes at the bottom of our umbrella stands page.
