Methods of Pulling Cable:
The GRICE PIPE REPLACEMENT TOOL can be pulled from main or meter side of street. A backhoe, truck or winch can be used to pull the GRICE TOOL through the damaged service while simultaneously laying new pipe.
A Word from Our Wire Rope Supplier:
"Severe bending and curling over a tight radius or angle will cause damage to the wire rope. This action would have a severely detrimental effect on the life of the wire. The relative movement of each individual strand and wire must remain within a radius not to be limited to less than 19 times the diameter of the wire. In most cases, 19 x .385 or 7.315 inches of minimum ratio between the rope and the curvature of excessive bending not only restricts correct wire support but also limits the relative movement of the adjacent individual strands. In order for the wire to complete a bend, two factors are related for continued wire rope life. One is the initial bend within its correct radius and the other is the normalizing of the wires in the straightened or passive position. If either of these is altered, premature rope life will come into play."
