The Model J2 Cable Lasher is used to lash a single aerial cable or numerous cables to a supporting strand or to an existing lashed cable with stainless steel lashing wire. Will lash any single or multiple aerial cables up to 3 in. (76mm) diameter across on any suspension strand from 1/4 in. to 7/16 in. A factory modification will allow the lasher to accommodate 1/2 in. strand if necessary. Consists of a rotating drum supported on a carriage that provides the mounting for a driving mechanism, cable lifters, cable and strand rollers.
Each of two recessed magazines will hold a 1200 ft. coil of .045 in. wire) lashing wire (or 450 ft. of .065 in.). The Lashing Wire is fully recessed and covered by a gate. Features a fast setup procedure, quick coil loading, and automatic drum lock for easy span transfers and smooth forward travel. J2 Lashers make overlashing easy. Just push down on the strand roller knob, rotate it a quarter turn and you can lash additional cables together on previously lashed cable.
