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.
CBS supply’s a range of self gripping clamps and grips, designed to suit a variety of conductors and applications. Range taking self gripping clamps to suit 6mm to 41mm aluminium, ACSR, steel and copper conductors, the range taking liners are available to suit in aluminium for aluminium/steel conductors and bronze for copper, steel anti-twisting and steel earth wire conductors. Now owned by Klein Tools, we supply a range of Chicago Grips, Parallel Jaw Grips, Havens Grips and grips for large conductors to suit every size and type of conductor.
Highly regarded as the best winch produced by CBS Products, the C-821 Hydraulic Universal Winch is highly suited to ADSS installations, but can also be used for general aerial stringing work, conductor recovery, and even underground cable handling as well. When installing ADSS cable you need a winch that you can trust to provide optimal service throughout the job.
Rugged and powerful, while being east to position and control, the C-821 is easy to set up. Double grooved bullwheels provide superior handling of the pulling rope providing constant maximum tension capability. The chassis is constructed of your steel and features manually operated stabilising props to assist when pulling.
Fitted with a semi-automatic layering arm provides you with the ability to monitor the pulling rope being wound and make manual adjustments as necessary. The powerful Honda GTX 390 engine drives a tandem hydraulic pump – one drives the high torque, fixed displacement motor on the bullwheel drive grearbox to provide constant tension. Sealed hydraulic oil tank is outfitted with an inlet filter/breather as wheel as return and suction filters.
Operator friendly controls have been designed to be ergonomic is use and provide complete control over the operation of the winch. A spring centred lever controls the direction of the bullwheel, while a detented lever engages the take-drum drive. A control knob is used to limit the rope/cable tension using the panel mounted tension indicator.
The pulling rope of the C-821 can be stored on a de-mountable drum reel for easy storage and is driven independently of the bullwheels to provide a nominal back tension that always matches the speed of the pulling rope.
