About the Adjustable Width Trailers
Are you looking to transfer cable drums over a long distance? Or even just around site? Well, you’re in the right place. The Adjustable Cable Width Trailers are designed to support cable pulling machines in all operations, with its unique adapting width feature.
High voltage cables are now being laid underground to improve safety instead of over headlines. Due to this, cables are now being manufactured in longer lengths, which reduces the number of joints being made. However, this is having a major impact on the size of the drums.
Standard cable drum trailers are finding it very difficult to deal with the increase in width and diameter of these drums, proving to be too wide. This is where the adjustable width cable drum trailers have an advantage. They guarantee the safe transportation of trailers to their site, with the feature of adjusting the width to accept all relevant drum sizes.
Adjustable Width Cable Drum Trailers are hydraulically adjusted and are available in a variety of sizes ranging from a 20,000kg to a 50,000kg capacity. These trailers can be adjusted on site to accommodate the varying width of drums.
