Self-Loading Functionality

Our range of 6-tonne cable drum trailers can be used for a one-man operation. Because of the overall mechanized design of the trailers – hydraulic lift arms, hydraulic jacklegs, and drum rotators – the trailers can be utilised for rotating and lifting drums, all by one individual.

Lifting System

This self-loading cable drum trailer has been designed to transport drums featuring electrical power cable and also delivering cable at the given work site. The unit sports a wide number of specific features that help in improving the overall productivity through the provision of one-man, safe handling of the respective cable drums.

  • The cable trailer doesn’t need to be positioned precisely for picking up the load, the chains attached to the pickup arms give it the needed flexibility.
  • It relies on hydraulic power to load the trailer and deliver cable at the given work site.
  • The support shaft for the drums is made out of high tensile steel material so it can be easily fitted across the cable drum by a single person.
  • Hydraulic drum drive uses low friction on the cable drum rim to assist controlled spooling or rewinding the cable.
  • A drum rotator is capable of turning the drum for reeling in or paying out cable.

Industrial Applications

As the cable trailer has been designed for ensuring a one-man operation, using this trailer can free up staff from other tasks while allowing small-sized working groups to maintain the overall output effectively. The working principles of our self-loading cable drum trailer can be used in various applications, including:

  • Irrigating hose
  • Optical and telephone cable
  • Defence equipment
  • Conveyor belting
  • Seismic line
