If you’ve ever tried to tension wire with a brake that has rusted, you will recall the panic when the line is surging and the difficulty you had maintaining tension. That scenario is most often experienced because the tensioning brake was made from steel components that have rusted in place.
Here, precision braking is guaranteed to be smooth and controlled by our patented ventilated bronze disc braking system. Components are all bronze, and modular for easy serviceability. The 16″ Ventilated bronze disc rotor is machined from a single casting and provides 3000 ft-lbs. torque. The industry’s best performance for distribution wire stringing.
