Reel Trailer – TRT-384/60
The Sherman + Reilly TRT-384/60 is a reel trailer for transporting and deploying power-distribution or transmission conductor and optical-fiber cable. It has the capability of independently orienting the direction of payout from up to three separate reels without having to re-position the trailer.
Capacity of three reels, each up to 84 in. OD by 60 in. wide, weighing up to 8,000 lbs. on an independently rotating turret (360°). The TRT-384/60 provides high capacity and flexible operation in a compact, stable, easy-to-maneuver, and easy-to-orient configuration.
Reel shafts are mounted in quick-release bearing-blocks, enabling fast, easy, and foolproof securing (and dismounting) of reels to their turrets. Each turret’s reel shaft is equipped with a 16 in. ventilated Al-bronze disc tension brake that may be engaged or not, giving an operator the flexibility to chose between free-rotation payout and payout under controlled tension, whichever best suits the demands for the given installation.
The standard trailer equipment includes heavy-duty air brakes with ABS, US DOT lighting, 3 in. adjustable front pintle eye, safety chains and hooks, and grounding lugs. Each corner has a telescoping outrigger jack that may be deployed to enhance stability on awkward surfaces when carrying heavy loads, or on tough pulls. Safety is enhanced and the risk of delay during a pull is reduced.
