Another Southwire SimPull Solutions success story.
Job: Tissue Services Center Dayton, OH
Contractor: Chapel Electric
Distributor: Richards Electric
Rep: Fields Electrical Sales
This job truly is a testament to the benefits provided when utilizing Southwire's "SIMpull Solutions" in conjunction with Maxis tools! It is important to keep in mind that the contractor was planning 4-5 days to complete this portion of the project, with 700 total labor hours. We accomplished the project in about 9 hours and 5 minutes. Taking only 320 labor hours total. That's a contractor labor savings of 380 man hours!
SIMpull Solutions Utilized
-SIMpull "no-lube THHN" Aluminum 277/480 Volt Colors
-Parralels and Stack Reels
-SIMpull Truck with A-Frames
-Maxis chugger and jack stands
We used the above tools to pull 32,125' of feeder cable ranging in sizes from 4 conductor 700 alum with a 600 ground to 4 conductor 600 with a 600 ground. Lengths varied from 230' to 275'. There were 25 seperate runs and 8 total reels. We accomplished everything in just over one 9-hour day.
It is also very important to note that the Maxis 6K Chugger managed to pull 3 x 230' runs of 4 conductor 600 with a 600 ground in the time that it took the Greelee Chugger to pull 1 x 275' run of the same sizes. That's almost 2.5 to 1 ration.
