The company says the ReelLift enables utility workers and contractors to reduce their reel and cable handling time by up to 50%, and combines the
functions of reel pickup and transport with semi-autonomous hydraulic cable payout, retrieval and figure-8 deployment in one compact, truck bed-based package.

Featuring a 5,000-lb. reel capacity, the company says the ReelLift System eliminates the need for a dedicated reel trailer, while enabling a cable crew to transport and position reels of telecom wire, fiber-optic cable and other reel-based connective media to jobsites, and then precisely pay out, retrieve and even create figure-8 patterns via its variable-speed controls, the company says. Features include a contractor-tested, quick-release axle security latch, a built-in 20,000-lb.-rated tow hitch and a five-year structural warranty.

The ReelLift System is customized to fit most popular chassis cab truck models, or it can be factory-installed at HydraBed’s Sabetha, Kansas location, the company says.
