"Pulling Heavy Gauge Cable Manually & Efficiently:"

From: Michael Hilbert dmg38@telusplanet.net

When you need slack (to enter a building) while pulling heavy-guage cable manually with a cable crew, to save time and effort (a tugger can take too long), first use length tape to get a measurement on your first run. Then, the trick is to pull loops between your pulleys to reach your crews' acquired lengths before splitting up your crew. This procedure helps to complete your pulls effectively, efficiently, and specifically, safely, to prevent back breaking work for one or more men feeding into the building.
