General Machine Products Company, Inc. (GMP) is pleased to introduce the “Sidewinder” Trailer-Mounted Fiber Optic Puller. The Sidewinder has been designed to exceed the requirements of installing telecommunication cables, employing a single 32” diameter capstan to provide a controlled force to the pulling of rope or tape. The unit can be used as an end-puller, or it can be placed at the mid-point of a section to assist the pull, thus enabling longer pulls to be achieved.

The Sidewinder has a rope/tape take-up drum, which is driven independently by a hydraulic motor. The Sidewinder weighs 1,400 lbs. and is powered by a commercial-grade Honda GX390 gasoline engine which drives fixed displacement, tandem mounted, hydraulic pumps.

The pulling tension is displayed on a dial gauge, allowing the operator to monitor the pull. Tension is adjustable from 0-1100 lbs., with maximum pulling speeds up to 200 feet per minute. The trailer equipment complies with D.O.T. standards, and features a single axle and telescopic jockey wheel.

Hendrix Wire & Cable announces the offering of Spacer Cable Systems, which improve the reliability and power quality of primary distribution systems while making them more resistant to storm damage. The compact configuration and reduced clearance requirements allow for multiple circuits to be installed on a single pole.

Overall the system strength makes Hendrix Spacer Cable ideal for long spans of up to 1500’. The close spacing of each individual phase conductor results in lower total line impedance and maintains voltage.

Hendrix Spacer Cable Systems come equipped with a conductor covering that is able to withstand temporary contact with tree branches and other vegetation.
