The ARS916 hydraulic puller is truck mounted, electronically controlled and self-contained.
The unit offers 62,947 lb.-ft. of pulling force and is designed for stringing one rope up to 3.75 inches in diameter. The bull-wheel grooves on the ARS916 are made from heat-treated steel. Other features include negative self-acting hydraulic brakes, integrated hydraulic dynamometers, hydraulic cooling systems, and advanced user controls. Hydraulically controlled systems allow the pullers to eliminate conductor galloping, the company says.
