20kN Top Mount
The 20kN top-mount version is designed to grip cable from 50 –140mm in diameter and push (or pull) it by driving it through two caterpillar tracks that grip the wall of the cable with rubber shoes. Using an electrical control pendant, the operator has full remote control of the pusher. This pendant is connected to the unit by 5 metres of cable allowing the operator to observe and control the cable pusher from an optimum vantage point. All parameters of the pusher are adjustable to give the machine the largest possible envelope, maximise its versatility and ensure that cables are not damaged through bruising or buckling.
These machines are designed to couple directly to a hydraulic power pack or similar hydraulic power source. All control circuits etc are incorporated into the pusher unit. The only connections to the machine are hydraulic power in and out (200 bar 23 litres/minute) and electrical power (30W, 12V DC, 3 amp).
Parts Books & Operating Instructions
The equipment is supplied with one copy of an operation manual which includes operating instructions, safety information, major assembly drawings, hydraulic and electrical schematics (if applicable), etc. Additional copies are available upon request at nominal cost.

The cable bender has been designed to straighten the ends of heavy cables before putting them through the cable pusher or during the joining process. It is of lightweight aluminium construction, hand-pump operated by a single acting hydraulic cylinder. The cable bender can handle cable from 50-160mm diameter (view image).
