General Machine introduced four reel-handling accessories to its line of aerial and underground cable placement tools and equipment. All feature steel construction and a bright yellow, powder-coat finish for visibility and corrosion protection. The C Reel Payout Frame weighs 87 lb and can support any reel up to 24-in. wide and 36 in. in diameter. The Pole Mount Spindle is engineered to accommodate the specific requirements of FIOS/VATS cable reels, and two sizes are available. The Reel Buck can support any utility reel up to 36-in. wide and up to a 50-in. diameter. Finally, the Reel Caddy can be used to support and dispense drop cable quickly and easily. It’s lightweight and folds flat for compact storage.
