About the NEW PT-3500
The Sherman+Reilly Revolution Series PT-3500 Single Drum Puller Tensioner is a multi-purpose puller and tensioner capable of pulling up to 3,500 lbs., with additional re-conductoring capabilities. This distribution class puller utilizes an automatic horizontal floating levelwind that permits overhead rope retrieval with precision control. The PT-3500 is equipped with an ACG (advanced control group), allowing for a single operator at a protected central console to control payout speed, pulling speed and tension, levelwind controls, and jack position. The operator controls employ PLC machine control with CAN-bus technology, providing for accurate to-the-second display readouts of the machine system status.

The hydraulically actuated automatic floating levelwind helps to ensure even distribution of rope during pulling operations, thereby minimizing the risk of tangles and overlap, and maximizing rope life. The horizontal floating style of the levelwind also allows for easy upright standby positioning during payout and tensioning operations. The PT-3500 is equipped with a turbo charged 42 hp. industrial diesel engine capable of delivering a full 3,500 lbs. of line pull (at the top of the drum loaded with maximum10,500 ft. of 5/8 in. Uniline™ synthetic rope). The fully hydraulic direct drive system, provides the operator with precise and intuitive automatic drive/drum braking. The PT-3500’s single axle trailer is equipped with three hydraulic jacks, an adjustable pintle eye, safety chains/hooks, and U.S. DOT-approved LED lighting.

The PT-3500 features a Safe-Zone Cab® providing ultimate safety and comfort for the operator. The Safe-Zone Cab® employs a floor to ceiling poly carbonate front window for maximum visibility while providing superior protection against impact. The cab includes climate control, a fully adjustable ergonomic seat, and all required electronic controls and gauges. The Safe-Zone Cab® is designed to reduce operator fatigue, and provide an “off-ground” envelope for greatly reducing the risk of “touch potential” in energized environments.
