For electrical professionals in the field that have to work with large spools have several very common complaints. Why do the stands need to be bulky and heavy? Why is there a left and right? Why do I need to crank all day to even get the stand to the material? Greenlee answers to the demands of electrical contractors with the release of their new GreenLee RXM Reel Stand ($479).
This newly designed stand makes cable pulling quick and easy by featuring an open spindle head to allow for quick set up without any tools and a patent-pending quick adjust system that quickly adjusts to new spool diameters. Forward head extensions keep the spindle safely secured during operation. The stands are interchangeable and can be used on both sides of the reel. The RXM Reel Stand also offers several features to reduce operator strain and fatigue, such as an ergonomic sidewind crank to lift the spool that is conveniently located towards the top of the stand.
Weighing in at only 35 lbs, these stands have the capacity to hold up to 6,000 lbs and working height of 23” to 72” spools. Greenlee also makes transportation easy with a convenient fold down design that fully collapses the stand with no lose parts. The folded down stand can then be easily transported with the attached rubber handle. Be sure to pair it with your choice of 5 or 6 foot spindle.
