CBS C-1045 Pull and Assist Winch – Power and Ease of use

CBS C-1045 Pull and Assist Winch – Power and Ease of use

Designed to exceed the requirements of installing underground cables, the CBS C-1045 Pull and Assist Winch employs a large 32″ diameter single capstan to provide controlled pulling force on rope or tape. This single capstan design allows the winch to be placed at the mid point of a section to assist in the pull enabling longer overall pull lengths.

Unlike traditional pullers that must be re-assembled on every operation, the C-1045 is always ready for the job. Mounted on a sturdy all steel chassis equipped with torsion suspension axles and stabilising prop legs, the C-1045 is secure and easy to position of multitude of ground types.

The integrated storage reel will pull the line off the capstan and store it as you are pulling which means you might be able to reuse your pulling line instead of disposing of it after the operation is finished. The C-1045’s capstan can also be angled at 45 degrees in order to figure eight the cable.

Operator controls are simple to use and ergonomic with a spring-centred lever that controls the direction of rotation of the capstan while the detent level engages the take-up drum drive. A control knob limits the maximum rope/cable tension based on readings from the panel mounted  tension indicator.

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.
