construction equipment Sherman-Reilly

Construction equipment: Sherman+Reilly, a Textron Inc. company and manufacturer of power line stringing and installation equipment, introduces its newly redesigned Duct Dawg X underground puller. The Duct Dawg X puller comes with either 7,500 lbs. or 10,000 lbs. of pulling capacity for underground cable installations.

The Duct Dawg X puller provides accurate, real-time display readouts of the machine system status. CANbus technology records stringing data to provide an accurate readout of digital line tensions. These readouts can then be stored on a flash drive.

Both the DDHX-75 and DDHX-100 can simplify job-site setup with its full articulating, self-supported 3-axis boom, capable of an over 55-degree swing arc (left or right); 85-degree vertical arc (up or down); 24-in. telescoping (in or out) and with a 17-in. sheave that can swivel 30 degrees.

Each Duct Dawg X puller has wireless technology through a remote control that allows the operator complete location flexibility. This also lowers the risk of “touch potential,” helping protect the operator from electrical shock when pulls are in proximity to energized environments. The remote control’s graphics system displays relevant pull information, including direction, speed, line tension and footage, as well as battery and connectivity strength. A battery charger is mounted on the unit to charge a spare battery during operations. In addition, the Duct Dawg X puller has a compact design with a shorter 16-ft. footprint and has been optimized with an intelligent solution for accessory storage and organization.
