Southwire introduces Qwikjax reel stands
By Renée Francoeur
December 1, 2016 – Southwire says its new Qwikjax reel stand helps “increase efficiency and safety in transportation as well as setup and payoff of wire reels”.
The Qwikjax features a collapsible design, which can be picked up and carried from pull site to pull site. Once in place, it uses a purpose-built gear and cradle system, ensuring the stand can be adjusted to axle height and, then, lift wire reels to 72 in. tall. Southwire says the stand can also be adjusted for uneven surfaces.
Qwikjax reel stands can lift up to 6000 lb when used as a set and feature axle safety catch hooks and wide steel rollers.
