Popular Options


  • Can be towed by a 1 ton pickup.
  • Can be charged exclusively from line power, on-board provided generator or a combination of the two.
  • Significant reduction of (CAIDI) Customer Average Interruption Duration Index.
  • Smaller crew size for initial restore operation while finishing permanent repairs on the next available shift rather than calling crews out after hours to work on replacing a broken pole in the dark, inclimate weather, or in areas of high traffic in order to restore all customers impacted.
  • Eliminates wait times required for multi-step pole replacement involving utility location services, site prep & material gathering.
  • Permanent replacement can be accomplished during regular time windows with less stress on the utility, its people, equipment and other resources.
  • Has the unique potential to protect physical property, livestock and people by minimizing outage durations.
  • Faster pole vs. vehicle cleanup time = open roadways.
  • With multiple staged units, crews will have the tools to reduce outage durations across the system as well as improve efficiency during routine maintenance.
  • Storm response teams will have the ability to deploy where pole damage is most significant.
  • Lowers costs for RIP (Replace In Place) jobs.
  • Reduce outage duration and improve customer satisfaction through continued low electric delivery rates by reducing operating costs.
  • Can be used at intersection crossings to support new or replacement conductor installation.
  • Allows temporary bypass for electrical equipment replacement or inspection at substations.
  • Fractional investment compared to a line truck with much lower maintenance and licensing costs with a vastly greater economical service life.
