The Sherman + Reilly™ Revolution Series PTV-6013 is a puller/tensioner/reconductorer in a single unit delivering 13,000 lb of pulling force and tensions up to 8,000 lb.  With a max speed of 4 mph, the 60 inch bullwheels provide constant tension and handle transmission class conductors. The PTV-6013 also features a reconductoring 60-inch V-groove application for “wrecking-out” old conductor.

Included is a self-loading reel stand capable of supporting a 96H inch by 67W inch reel, up to 18,000 lb.  The operator controls employ PLC machine control with CAN-bus technology, and use a removable/replaceable memory card to store all relevant stringing data. The onboard computer system allows for self-diagnostics of all hydraulic circuits with results shown on a large color display.

The PTV-6013 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 protecting against impact.  The cab also has 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” envelop for greatly reducing the risk of touch potential in energized environments.
