Right after the invention of the wheel, a man sought further ease and this was it. He created a reel to make the wheel go its distance faster and with lesser man-power. Given below are a few advantages of using reel stands:
1. Changing the direction of a cable roller
It is almost impossible to change the direction of a cable drum roller. You will either end up wrecking it when turning corners or getting splinters yourself. Using a reel stand will make it much more easily movable and save you from accidents.
2. Loading and unloading the reel
You mustn’t underestimate the weight of a cable reel. It is no good for a person willing to do such a task alone. With the help of a reel, the cable drum can be adjusted and transported with greater ease!
3. Better handling
Without a reel or a cable roller stand, the wire is at a greater risk of getting damaged, the repairs of which could cost double. Reels ensure proper care.
4. Compact and readily usable
The cable is wound around in a circular motion that guarantees optimal storage. It can be accessed through simple means, without having to create a mess.
5. Increased durability
It is more likely that a cable, wrapped around a reel stand, can stand the test of time. Damage is less probable if caution is taken.
You know what they say; if it looks stupid but works, it’s not stupid! So, if you’re in the construction business, chances are you need this reel and as time will tell, you will be thankful you made the decision.
