Turret Reel Trailer – TRT-184 – One Reel

TRT-184 – SINGLE REEL Trailer

The Sherman+Reilly TRT-184/60 is a single reel trailer for transporting and deploying power-distribution or transmission conductor and optical-fiber cable. It has the capability of independently orienting the direction of payout without having to re-position the trailer.

Capable of handling reels up to 84 in. OD by 60 in. wide, weighing up to 7,000 lbs. The rotating turret may be locked at 15 different intervals. The shaft and drive bars can be coupled to a 16 in. diameter ventilated Al-bronze caliper/disc tension brake. Also, the turret can also be removed, leaving a flat deck with tie-downs, allowing the transportation of other equipment.

Turret reel trailer equipment includes DOT lighting, adjustable front pintle eye, safety chains and hooks, grounding lug, and electric brakes. Additionally at each corner is an adjustable jack for stability during tough pulls.
