• Two-Reel Spool-Handling Trailer

    The Wilco™ two-reel spool-handling trailer is designed for field handling and deployment of two spools of power cable. The cable spools are 96×68 in. and weigh approximately 20,000 lb each (40,000 lb for two cable spools). The trailer is typically used in conjunction with tensioner trailers and other equipment dedicated to deploying and assembling power cable.



    This piece of electrical transmission construction equipment utilizes cable support spindles, and brakes are specified by customer. They are built into trailer frame at two positions. These two areas are designed to hold a spool with a maximum outside diameter of 96 in. and width of 68 in. The trailer structure has two outside wide flange beams with king pin plate structure, transitional primary crossmembers, and standard crossmembers. The king pin is Ø2-in. or customer preference. Our two-reel spool-handling trailer has a dual-axle trailer frame with mechanical (leaf spring) Hutchens suspension.



    • Rear “dozer push” structures project off rear of trailers to allow bull dozer to push a stuck trailer. Structure is integrated into trailer frame to allow 100,000-lb. push force from rear.
    • Catwalks and fold-out walkways with handrails can be deployed during a job and stowed during transit.
    • A “fair lead” structure at the rear of the trailer may be deployed and used to control cable connecting to tensioner unit. This feature can be enhanced with addition of vertically and horizontally oriented neoprene lined rollers (specified by customer). Vertical cable handling structure at rear of trailer can be laid down and fastened to deck during road travel.
    • Dual tires are 11R22.5 (standard model).
    • Standard running lights meet DOT and other legal requirements.
    • Custom features can be added as requested.
