We test our products throughout our manufacturing process. One example, we took a 30K CRS 108, loaded it up with a 24,000 lb. reel of conductor suspended it with a crane 27” in the air, and dropped it onto a concrete slab while recording with strain gauges and high-speed video and to capture the effects. This is just a fraction of what we do to help ensure that all stands are durable and solid. If you are looking for a solid, all-welded steel stand designed and built for rugged utility work, you found it.
The payout disc brake maintains smooth tailing tension. All stands include grounding bars and anchor rings at each corner. Available with an optional hydraulic retriever for further functionality.
