The manual wire rope puller is a hand operated lifting and pulling device. The puller could also be used for lowering, tensioning and guying which makes it a versatile, portable and multipurpose tool.

The principle function of the wire puller is that the rope passes through mechanical jaws rather than being reeled on a drum of a puller or conventional winch. The tension of the rope is applied by means of two pairs of self-energized jaws which apply a grip onto the wire rope in sections. The effort is transferred to the jaws by two parallel levers, one for forward operation and the other for reverse operation. A telescopic bar, fitted to either the forward or reverse lever, transmits the effort to the jaw mechanism. This parallel clamping system provides an evenly distributed grip at a lower force, resulting in less rope wear. The load is held securely at all times.

Increase the Pulling and Lifting Capacity:

Various methods of rigging are shown. For the correct and incorrect method refer to figures 1 and 2. Other methods of rigging will increase the capacity of the machine – refer to figures 3 and 4.

Figures 1 2 3

In examples 3 and 4 the maximum working load limit (WLL) of the pulley and anchor point shall be equal to or greater than two times the WLL.

NOTE: When the wire rope puller is anchored directly to a fixed point, ensure that there are no obstructions around the machine which could prevent the wire rope, puller and anchor from operating in a straight line.

It is recommended to use a sling of similar capacity between the anchor point and the unit.

Figure 4

WARNING: Any rigging configuration which requires the calculation of forces applied should be checked by a competent engineer, with special attention to the strength of the fixed point used.

Certification

Each unit comes fully certified with a test certificate or an EC Declaration of Conformity stating compliance with the essential health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
