The Role of a Reel Trailer in Cable Installations

October 15, 2018

A reel trailer shares a similar resemblance to a spindle that has cable wrapped around it. Reel trailers have wheels and a hitch that are usually attached to a large vehicle so the reel can be easily transported and moved around. These trailers serve two functions: for laying new cable or moving old cable from the ground. Our reel trailers vary in sizes because they need to accommodate different sizes spools of cable, despite that, they all share similar design. Most trailers have controls and onboard batteries to let cables loose or to reel it up.


At AMAC Equipment, our reel trailer is durable, reliable, and ideal for transporting cables to job sites!


Reel trailers are useful in the cable installation industry as they make the process easy to move cables to different locations. It is necessary to use a reel trailer when kilometers of cable are being laid out. Our trailers at AMAC Equipment are designed and built to tackle the weight and stress of large lengths of cable. They can efficiently pull cable, ensuring that each project where they are used is a successful one.


Our wide range of reel trailers and accessories include the following:
