Powerline Sagging

The modern economy moves on energy, both hydrocarbon and electric. Demand for additional electric power continues to grow as more electronics and more electric vehicles fill our lives. Electrical transmission lines are being built and upgraded to meet this demand.

The rear-mounted towing winch has proven to be a versatile tool in support of the expansion of the electrical grid. In new construction, several miles of electrical wire are supported on sheaves to allow the wire to move laterally into its final position. The winch is used to apply just the right amount of tension on the wire so that it "sags" into the position that achieves the best balance between ground clearance and mechanical tension in the wire. The new generation of hydraulic winch is a perfect tool in that it delivers as much line pull as the crawler can sustain while able to control the position of the wire to within a fraction of an inch.
