Developed with Australian utilities the Earth Reel has a 1000V insulated handle covering a strong stainless steel rod to eliminate a requirement in some regions to cover the spike. The tapered auger assists with easy driving into the variety of soil densities encountered in the field. Incorporated into the earth reel is a custom brass bushing running the full width of the reel, this runs smoothly on the stainless steel shaft ensuring continuous reliable continuity. There is a fully adjustable drag system to prevent the reel from over spooling and it also allows the reel to be locked when not in use. To accommodate a variety of test equipment accessories a stackable 4mm banana plug is fitted to 20 metres of green cable flexible 1.0mm cable 0.6/1kV and a robust crocodile clip. The green cable has an inner white colour wear indicator layer to alert the user to cable damage. This Earth Reel has been designed to be robust, reliable and maintenance free and it is available now.
