WESTECH SHOVEL LIVE CABLE REEL
Shovel Live Cable Handlers are attached to and pulled behind the shovel, sled fashion, on pontoon runners protected by abrasion resistant liner plates.
The Cable Handler automatically pays out cable as the shovel moves down the cut. When rewinding the cable, the shovel simply swings around and lifts the cable reel with the dipper. The operator or oiler can activate the reel by remote control or at the reel.
The Cable Reel will automatically maintain maximum line pull without exceeding the cable manufacturer’s recommended tension.
The reduction of manpower and extra machinery will substantially reduce the cost and time normally required for moving the shovel and cable.
WESTECH DRAGLINE LIVE CABLE REEL
Dragline Live Cable Reels are designed to be pulled by a dozer in conjunction with movements of the Dragline. The cable support side mounted boom allows a D-10 class dozer to pass under the cable while moving from one end of the Cable Handler to the other.
The Cable Reel pays out cable as the Dragline works its way down the cut. The Cable Handler can be activated to rewind the cable by remote control, or at the reel, when the Dragline moves in the opposite direction. All WESTECH Cable Reels maintain a steady, safe tension on the cable during the “pay out” and rewind cycles.
