The following calculator is to be used as a general guide to determining Line Pull for your application.
As recommended by IEEE Standard 524, the maximum pulling tension applied to the conductor should not exceed 10%
of the rated strength of the conductor. Results given using this calculator assume a level pull. Tighter sag values, clearing high obstacles and pulls including angles and/or elevation changes will increase the pulling force suggested below.
All fields are required in order to provide an accurate calculation. Values provided cannot be a negative number, zero or a letter. Suggested Line Pull will display automatically when all fields have been entered.
*This calculator is an estimate based on the information that you provide. Wagner-Smith Equipment Co. is providing this as a tool to help your stringing application.
