Under the category winches, you will find a product we stock known as cable pullers. To provide you with more information on this handy piece of equipment, we’ve laid out some details on the cable pullers that you can purchase from us here at Lifting Gear Direct.

What is a cable puller?

First, let’s start with the basics; what actually is a cable puller? Cable pullers, as you may have guessed, help with the pulling of cable. Said cable is run through the cable puller, which acts as a centralised control point for the moving of the cable.

It can be tough to pull cables, especially if you are dealing with heavy loads, and a cable puller, which can be both manually and electrically operated, makes this job much easier. Cable pullers come with overload protection devices, braking systems, and have both forward and reverse levers.

Some cable pullers even come with optional extras, such as eye sling hooks, drum reels or storage boxes. You will find that cable pullers are compact devices, making them easy to transport and move around worksites. Despite their small and compact nature, they are robust, powerful and highly reliable.

Using a cable puller

There are a few ways to use a cable puller, but we’ve outlined the main usage here. First, you’ll need to attach the cable puller to the two points from which you would like to run cable through. Most cable pullers generally come with hooks attached on the end, making this an easy job, but you can purchase additional extras.

To begin pulling the load, you either crank the lever or release the cable, depending on the type of cable puller that you have. Once your load has reached its desired destination, you will either stop cranking the lever, or engage the stop lever. Make sure that your load is securely fastened and safe, and then you can disengage the cable puller.
