CBS Duct Rodders

CBS Duct Rodders

Crucial for underground installation of cabling, the Duct Rodders fill a multitude of uses from cleaning ducts to locating paths, threading lines, and even pulling cables. The frequent use of a duct rodder often leaves it subject to wear and tear which is why you need the best in the business.

CBS Duct Rodders combine the ease of operation with reliable performance to increase the efficiency of your rodding operations. We use the highest quality materials to produce durable and long lasting duct rodders.

What Make CBS Rodders Different?

Considered to be the best duct rodders on the market – and for good reason. We pride ourselves on creating the highest quality rodders that are renowned for their strength and durability.

Crafted from fibreglass using a proprietary process where the glass fibres are strictly uni-directional with an optimal density of 80% which results in substantially stronger rodders than pultruded manufacturing can offer. They are then covered in a UV stabilised, polypropylene thermoplastic jacket to provide excellent handling characteristics throughout its life span, and boost the corrosion resistance without adding weight.

Designed not to soften or lose tensile strength in hot weather nor become brittle under cold conditions, the CBS Duct Rodders can be used throughout the year.

Rodder Carriers

Each Duct Rodder is mounted on a tough frame that assists with the payout/pay-in of the rod using an eyebolt with nylon bushing design. This frame is crafted from tubular steel alloy and powder coated for corrosion resistance to last as long as the Duct Rodders.

Larger diameter carriers are equipped with inboard wheels for easier manoeuvrability on site and features a hand-operated brake to control payout.

Rodder Ends

CBS Rodders come supplied with a male threaded end fitting with a tapered head on the leading end, and a female threaded fitting on the back end and can be used with the following accessories to easily meet the needs of the job at hand.

  • Flexible Leader – Large and small, this leader manoeuvres around corners effectively.
  • Roller guide – Over an existing cable or empty conduit, the roller guide reduces the amount of pushing force required.
  • Swivel Coupling – This coupling rotates freely to prevent rotation of the rod when being pulled, avoiding any twisting or breakage that could occur.
CBS Lightweight Capstan Winch – Where Versatility Meets Ease

CBS Lightweight Capstan Winch – Where Versatility Meets Ease

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.

CBS C-1350 Cable Pusher – Pushing Through the Trenches

CBS C-1350 Cable Pusher – Pushing Through the Trenches

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.

CBS C-821 Hydraulic Universal Winch

CBS C-821 Hydraulic Universal Winch

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.
