PowerHandling Cable & Wire Safety Stop Chock
Used as a safety precaution to prevent large loads from rolling beyond their intended travel, this Safety Chock is ideal for when rolling large cable reels safely. A Safety Chock should be used in conjunction with all PowerHandling products and comes with a steel handle, painted in bright orange for high visibility. The ergonomically designed, soft rubberized handle grip is ideal for comfortable use and perfect for multi-positioning your chock.
Its steel base is clamped and bolted to the recessed underside of the chock, with adjacent wheels for easy manoeuvring. The impact resistant rubber wedge is designed with the heaviest applications in mind and perfect for safely halting rolling reels. Our Safety Chock is lightweight, sturdy, effective and strong enough to last.
PowerHandling Cable Reel Turner CRT
Designed for rotating any flanged cable reel above 1m (40″) in diameter up to a maximum 7,000kg (15,500lbs) reel weight on a smooth, flat floor. The rotation principle is that one flange remains on the ground while the other flange is rotated around it.
The Reel Turner which is designed to be used with one of our PowerHandlers, is placed behind one flange (the one to be rotated) and then with the use of a PowerHandler one of the flanges is rolled forward, up and over, into the center channel of the reel turner. For ease, the front channel lip will tip down onto the ground and brake as the flange enters the channel, then tip back up. The operator can then manually push or pull the flange on the reel skate and it will pivot around the other flange that is still in contact with the ground. Once in position the flange can be carefully rolled back off the reel turner. Due to the decline we recommend using one of our Chock Stops to ensure the cable reel doesn’t go beyond its intended travel.
