MODIFIED LONG STROKE RAMS

Custom-made modified long stroke rams, purchased from HTC, proved valuable in tensioning up large conductors on heavy tension lines in the Wairarapa.

Electrix Contract Manager in Palmerston North, Jon Edwards, says the specially-fitted
out 22ton 800mm long stroke rams mean some re-wiring projects can be done on the ground, making work easier and cutting the time in half.

Says Jon, "We gave HTC the ratings and measurements and the rams were fabricated to suit. We specified what we needed and they came up with the solution."

Special collars were fitted to the ends of the rams, along with chain shorteners, for use when chain hoists are too cumbersome.
