T140-2H/2DD-1600 Hydraulic Bullwheel Tensioner

The T140-2H/2DD-1600 is capable of tensioning 1 or 2 conductors with dual hydraulic infinite variable tensioning control allowing independent control of each individual conductor.

The exclusive open-sided canted bullwheel design prevents potentially damaging birdcaging or torquing of the conductor. This design also allows for a more compact machine.

The trailer is equipped with high flotation tires suitable for pulling the unit through sand or swamp land conditions.
