Roller conductor lifters provide more flexibility

Diversified

Waco, Texas—Diversified Products introduces two roller conductor lifters, offering power line and electric utility crews more flexibility when moving and supporting energized lines. The roller conductor lifters allow for safer work while optimizing the utilization of equipment and personnel on the job.

Constructed of high strength steel, yet still lightweight, each roller conductor lifter is designed for use in conjunction with an insulated link supported by the same crane or derrick being used to hold other conductors. This helps increase efficiency by freeing up bucket trucks or other equipment for different functions. The rolling support allows more freedom of movement for an energized conductor, preventing conductor damage often caused when holding lines with abrasive hooks.

Both single and dual roller conductor lifters are available. The single lifter weighs just 15 pounds and has a lift capacity of 2,000 pounds. The dual lifter weighs only 40 pounds and has a working load of 4,000 pounds, while spacing the two conductors either 16 or 18 inches apart. Each lifter supports a maximum cable diameter of 1.5 inches, and rated capacity information is clearly marked on each unit.

Field-tested and approved by transmission and distribution maintenance professionals, the roller conductor lifters are quick and simple to set up. A pivoting gate over each roller retains the conductor within the lifter, and an attachment point for a hot stick allows linemen to guide the lifter.

Development of the roller conductor lifters was initiated through a request from a leading electrical utility company, with the product concept derived from actual line crews in the field.

Diversified Products designs, engineers and manufactures a full line of utility products, including line lifters, insulated work platforms, man baskets and pole pullers.
