Lightweight cable puller
The Pull-It 3000X is this company’s third generation of lightweight cable pullers for electrical contractors. The new cable puller features structural reinforcements to handle the greater pulling capacity provided by new power drills, used to operate the device. The puller can attach to the receiver hitch of a truck, and with the company’s new tripod attachment, can pull wire in underground situations. Estimated to be 30% stronger than prior versions, it can pull at speeds of up to 100 ft/min and requires only one person to operate. Its carrying/storage bag is now reinforced and has wheels for ease of transporting.
