New re-reeving unit

19 March 2008

Oklahoma City, OK-based Reel-O-Matic has designed a line of re-reeving machinery to make the job of removing and installing crane rigging safer and easier. The machinery also allows for faster, simpler and more cost effective rigging inspections, the company says.

The Reel-O-Matic Re-Reeving units come in standard capacities of 5,000 and 10,000 pounds. The units feature self-contained hydraulic systems that are either gasoline or diesel-driven, with either recoil or electric start systems. The units are designed for outdoor environments with a rain shield to protect the drive system components.

The drive system provides tension-controlled pay-out and take-up, and are offered with an optional slide coupling drive shaft disconnect that allows for free-wheeling capability. The Re-Reeving units come standard with a forklift base for mobility, and are also provided with lift lugs for loading and unloading of reels. They are also designed to be trailer-mounted. Reel-O-Matic builds custom-made units up to 80,000 pound capacity and for hazardous location operation.
