Customer Input Leads to New Sherman+Reilly Line of Utility Equipment

Nov. 17, 2021
The Heritage series features two new pieces of equipment including a new 3,000 lb puller tensioner and a 2,000 lb pilot line winder.

A collaboration between Sherman+Reilly and its customers led to the new Heritage Series line of products, which includes a new 3000 lb puller tensioner and a 2000 lb pilot line winder. 

“We spoke to many of our customers and distilled down what they told us they wanted: 'old-school' feel, solid, easy-to-use products with the operator safety features for which Sherman+Reilly are well known,” said CEO Mike Dunn.

These units pack in all the things expected from equipment produced by Sherman+Reilly and are built with the same reliability the company is known for in a redesigned trimmed down style, without sacrificing safety or comfort.

First developed in the Heritage Series is the PT-3000H – a single-drum, multi-purpose distribution puller/tensioner. This model can pull 3,100 lbs. and tension 2,000 lbs. overhead. Tensioning at very low forces – down to 100 lbs. hydraulically and even less force manually – is possible with the PT-3000H. An optional underground package with the capability of pulling 7,500 lbs. adds to the unit’s versatility. The PT-3000H can also be outfitted with an optional Spider Pilot Line System with independent levelwind.

Quick and easy X-Change bolt-action drum coupling, a Safe-Zone enclosure with Ocu-View, ergonomic control panel, adjustable seat, and a compact footprint round out the unit. Solidly built, the PT-3000H offers safe and easy-to-use operation at a competitive price point.

Next in the Heritage Series is the PLW-200H – a four-drum pilot line winder with a single drum capacity of 6,000 ft of 7/16 in. rope in an economical package. A Tier 4 Final, turbo-charged, 49 hp industrial diesel engine provides 2,000 lbs top of drum pulling capacity and an optional synchronized levelwind switch supports the installation of four conductors at once. Independent roller assemblies designed for each of the four pilot lines are operated with remote reel engagement from the control panel inside the Safe-Zone enclosure with Ocu-View screen.
