Feed the cable through hole (3) until it emerges from the other side of the puller and continue until desired length
If, during operation, a considerable length of slack has to be taken up before the puller takes the load, open the
jaws by the method described in step (2) and pull the slack through by hand.
Preparing Puller to Take Load
If the jaws have been opened they must be re engaged before the puller can take load. This is achieved by giving the
jaw clamp (1) a sharp downward and forward blow with the palm of the hand, away from lever (2). It will engage with a definite
Because four pullers are used in unison when tensioning the link It is Important that all four are set in
the same gear. Therefore always use low gear In any bridging operation. It should be a general rule
that pullers are kept in low gear and only rarely set at high. If high speed Is used, it should be
returned to low after use.
Raise the gear change plunger (4) on top of lever (5).
Rotate the gear change control (6) until the indicator points to high or low.
Place the handle (7) over lever (5).
Make full definite strokes backwards and forwards of the handle. The cable will move with each backward and
forward stroke. Do not be tempted to make small strokes as the jaws inside the machine will fail to operate
Place the handle (7) over lever (2).
Make full definate strokes as in step d.(2) above. There is no extra control to be operated to obtain reverse.
Anchoring the Puller
The puller should only be attached to an anchorage, post tensioner, jacking bracket and davits, using the pin and clip
