Making Wire Pulling Easier, Safer, Faster

Late last year, Encore Wire updated its already quite popular and robust wire pulling tool PullPro.

The company’s pre-filled wire caddy sits upright at a job site, with an ergonomically-friendly top handle, reducing the act of stooping to pick up a spool of heavy, cumber-some conductor.

Enclosed wire is available in 14 AGW, 12 AGW and 10 AGW solid or stranded, and the length of wire in each PullPro has now been increased by an additional 250 feet, to a total of between 750 and 1500 feet per PullPro (dependent on the thickness of the conductor).

Even with that increase in length, all sizes and lengths of PullPros weigh less than 30 lbs., which the company says makes moving wire spools not only faster but also safer, reducing strain on the backs and arms of workers.

The product features a unique coil pattern that allows for tangle-free and memory-free wire pulling, resulting in smooth, straight pulls. The coil retains weight distribution dur-ing the pull, improving balance. A footage estimator on the side of the unit is a visual indicator of how much is left in each spool during a pull, and a shrink-wrapped inner coil allows wire to be pulled with or without the case.

Other features include a pocket on the case to secure wire between pulls and a set of four ingenious “snap-together” tabs on each side of each case. These tabs let wire pullers stack PullPro cases vertically, horizontally or even in an “X” pattern for smooth, simultaneous multi-conductor pulls.

The PullPro is also impact-resistant; on the company’s Web site are videos showing a fully loaded PullPro being dropped from 80 feet without any damage.
