Designed to give reliable, flexible winching system to meet all 11/33kV work, together with some 66kV and 132kV maintenance requirements. The system employs a range of drums to suit particular applications. The powerful winch is mounted on a robust steel chassis with a single axle trailer facility for site manoeuvrability. The engine fitted with electric start, powers the drive spindle of the drum via a gearbox and hydraulic circuit, which is designed to achieve smooth, variable control of the winding operation in either direction. The powered hydraulic drum lifting device, together with hydraulic stabilising jacks provides safe drum handling. Hydraulic layering device fitted as standard.
More and more cables are on the market than ever before, so you need one machine that can be adaptable to all types of cables and sizes – meet the CBS Whisper.
Designed around being adaptable to different cable sizes ranging from 2-8.5mm in diameter, the Whisper provides a single solution for installing cables at the end of the infrastructure network with its unparalleled flexibility and simple to use design. In addition the Whisper can be configured to be compatible with flat drop fibres with or without tracers.
Powered by an external drill, we recommend using a variable speed model with adjustable torque setting powered by an 18-20 volt battery. Additionally a brushless type drill manufactured by an industrial grade manufacturer will ensure a long life for both the blowing machine and drill.
[The Whisper] works well, is easy to use, and offers value [unsurpassed] in it’s price range.Chris Gemme
Versatile general purpose winch, the Lightweight Capstan Winch packs a powerful pulling capacity of 1000kg when powered by the 8 HP engine, and 500kg when powered by the lighter 5.5 HP engine. this makes the C-1035 perfect for pulling lines for fibre optics and small diameter power conductors.
The simple and elegant design of this winch combines a reliable Honda gasoline engine with a right angle gear box with is all mounted onto a capstan. This design can be positioned over a manhole for easy lifting and pulling. The integrated crossbar stabiliser is practical and can be stored within the frame for a more compact size when transporting and storing.
The simple design also lends a simple operation and maintenance so that the Capstan Winch spends more of its time on the job and not in the garage, making it one of our most productive pieces of equipment.
Ideal for installing cables in trenches and underground work, the CBS C-1350 Cable Pusher boosts the efficiency of your team by providing the often needed mid-assisting support between the cable reel and winch.
Hydraulically driven and powered by an external power pack with an output of 4 gallons/minute and 1500 max psi for peak performance we recommend using the C-1203 Hydraulic Power Pack which features an integrated oil cooler which is required for long periods of work.
Compatible with a wide range of accessories, the C-1350 can meet all your cable pushing needs, and can be used with the following:
- Corrosion protected steel “V” Frame Guide Set is positioned in front of the cable reel to guide the cable into the trench or duct.
- The Trench Feed Roller, also manufactured from corrosion protected steel, features adjustable vertical guide rollers designed to feed cables into trenches or ducts.
- Hoop Rollers, Heavy Duty Cable Rollers or Trench Rollers can be used at necessary intervals to help minimise cable drag.
- Corner Rollers should be used for guiding cable around corners and reducing friction.
