Tensioning Brake & Take-up Retriever

Precision braking is guaranteed to be smooth and controlled by our patented ventilated bronze disc braking system. Components are modular for easy serviceability. Our versatile Take-Up Retriever fits any Sauber brake without modification. This enhancement is designed to pull through short spans of new conductor and salvage wire. Optional hydraulically activated calipers are ideal for remotely controlling braking tension on elevated platforms. Multiple reels can be controlled from a single operator’s station.
