Standard Features of Redmond Gary Cable Trailers

Each Redmond Gary Cable Trailer is designed to seamlessly perform tasks that encompass cable operations in an efficient and safe manner. The self-loading design allows for safe, one-man operation so that other personnel can be freed up for other tasks or allow smaller workgroups to maintain efficient output. It’s not required to be positioned accurately to pick up the load as chains attached to the pickup arms provide flexibility. Hydraulic power supplies a lifting system and lets you easily pay out cable at the worksite. The drum support shaft is manufactured from high tensile steel tube and rotates on low friction, weather-resistant bearings. The drum rotator can be switched to either pay out or reel in, depending on the situation.

The performance capabilities vary as each is designed to cater to different needs. Standard features that are included across the range include:

  • Trailer frame finished in hot-dip galvanising
  • Operational controls housed in a weather-proof cabinet located on the kerbside of the trailer
  • All tanks and hydraulic cylinders are finished in 2-pack enamel
  • Wind Down Front Jackleg/Stabiliser
  • Control Cabinet manufactured from 1.6mm zinc anneal sheeting finished with powder coating – all seams and edges are sandblasted, primed prior to powder coating
