Utility Solutions, Inc., which will be in Booth #723 at the 2023 Lineman's Expo, announces the next generation of load break tools, the LOAD-RANGER FLEX-LT. This tool features a patent-pending 180º rotating Flex Head, which is designed to solve a common industry issue: tool binding when approaching cutouts from certain angles.
“The Flex Head significantly reduces or eliminates most binding positions and tool stresses, and offers the widest operating range available in any load break tool,” said Peter Shirilla, lead design engineer at Utility Solutions.
The product also addresses a common pain point in the industry: complicated service procedures. It can be disassembled in minutes using just two tools, simplifying maintenance and minimizing repair costs.
"Linemen will immediately notice how much easier our tool is to handle," continued Shirilla. “We knew there were limitations with the other load break tools available on the market, especially when trying to open underslung or hard-to-reach switches. The rotating head deals with these problems and makes short work of them.”
These improvements reinforce Utility Solutions' commitment to providing efficient and reliable equipment that meets the needs of utilities everywhere.
