AFQ708 Hydraulic Puller-Tensioner

The AFQ708 features four pairs of bull-wheels with completely independent controls, offering 4 x 10,100 lbf (45 kN), 2 x 20,200 lbf (90 kN) or 1 x 40,400 lbf (180 kN) of pulling or tensioning capacity and is designed for stringing one, two, three or four ropes or conductors. The bull-wheel grooves are made from high resistance interchangeable nylon sectors. Wear-proof thermally and chemically treated steel bull-wheel grooves are also available on the AFQ708.

Hydraulic Transmission
4 closed hydraulic circuits for stepless speed variation in both rotating directions. This machine is provided with 4 pull pre-setting systems that maintain the pre-set pulling value (also when the speed is reduced to “0”) by automatically adjusting the operation speed according to the friction and unexpected loads which may develop along the line.
