Cable Pullers –The Affordable Alternative to Bulky wire pulling systems

by Greg Tompkins GC Electric, LLC
For safe wire management at construction sites and in renovation sites wire pulling can be tiring if proper equipments are not used. Many cable pullers are available in the market in different sizes and power modes. Read more for more information...

At any construction site, few surveys are necessary to carry on work smoothly. Utility amenities including water, electricity, phone lines, cable lines, drainage pipes, etc. are to be set up in early stages. This process requires a considerable manpower and highly specialized tools. If we talk about lying cable wires, a contractor with high skilled electricians and staff are to be hired. Electrician along with architects prepare the blueprints of the wiring areas. Proper coordination between them is required for safe electrical work. Determining the exact boundaries for fencing with the help of the blueprints given by the architects or engineers involved in the project is an inevitable step. The cable setup should not be rushed, as it includes components that might be crucial for later developments.

Cables can be Shielded cables, whether coaxial cable or medium-voltage power cable. They need to be pulled for several kilometers, sometimes and hence for the help of electricians, various types of equipment including power drills, adapters, Jack-stands, cable reel arbors and other hardware are available. Using these tools is time-consuming, so to reduce the usage of all these equipment, cable pullers came into the market. The cable pullers support the work of electricians in the construction and renovation jobs. These compact and powerful pieces of equipment are responsible for running cable through ducts and behind walls. The tough work of running cables through rigid conduit piping and on transmission towers are made easy with them. These innovative pullers are ideal for electrical contractors with space limitations and smaller wire pulling budgets.

Cable pullers are a vital part of the cable set up. They offer an affordable alternative to expensive and often bulky wire pulling systems. They are best for pulling Fiber Optic and Video Cable. Being truly a marvel of compact engineering considered by many contractors they deliver plenty of wire pulling muscle to the job site with amazing ease and flexibility

For use in cable pulling ropes are specifically designed. The size of a rope has a corresponding capacity for allowable pulling tension. Cable pulling tension calculations is done. Gravity, length of the raceway, type of raceway, the total degrees of bend, individual bend radii, and friction coefficients are few essential parameters which are calculated.

If you are looking for wire pulling tools, then you must search online. You will find many reliable contractors who sell them at affordable prices. For them, quality control is important because a bad pulling system can result in hazards at construction sites and renovation projects.
