As standard the machine is fitted with manual hydraulic jacking to raise and lower the drum but motorised hydraulic lift can be supplied if required. Cable is fed from the payout medium through a calibrated measuring head to the despatch side of the machine. Here it is paid onto a drum mounted on a shaft ready for despatch to your customer. Alternatively, for shorter lengths of cable a simple coiling head may be used. The unit is very simple in operation and highly mobile around the warehouse. When in operation a braking system prevents movement.
