The Sherman+Reilly Revolution Series PTR-7240S- (Split Model) is a bullwheel puller/tensioner/reconductorer in a paired unit, delivering up to 40,000 lbs. of pulling force and tensions up to 25,000 lbs. With a maximum speed of 4 mph, this Revolution Series PTR’s 72 inch bullwheels provide constant tension and can handle transmission-class conductors.

The PTR-7240S features a fully-electronic integrated control system for precision application of force to conductors. This split model PTR comes with a separated reel carrying trailer that includes a pulling drum designed for synthetic rope or steel hardline. Having a separate reel-carrying trailer provides a reduced equipment footprint for storage purposes, and minimizes operating space in the field. The PTR is also equipped with an automatic levelwind and an optional reconductoring reel that can be used in place of the provided rope drum. Additionally, the usage of the reel carrying trailer can be bypassed altogether for use of external conductor reel stands – all under system control.

The PTR-7240S offers either a heavy-duty 5th wheel king pin hitch or a pintle eye hitch option for maximum vehicle towing compatibility, providing excellent ground clearance that can handle very rugged terrain. Also included are a powerful 7.1 liter, 268 hp 6-cylinder diesel engine, PLC machine control with CAN-bus technology, a removable/replaceable USB memory card interface for recording and storing all relevant stringing data, and complete system self-diagnostics for all hydraulic circuits shown on the large color display.

The PTR-7240S features a Safe-Zone™ Cab providing ultimate safety and comfort for the operator. The Safe-Zone™ Cab employs a polycarbonate 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.
