Diversified Products introduces its Auxiliary Arm for cranes, bucket trucks and digger derricks. The Auxiliary Arm supports one or three conductors while line crews replace insulators, crossarms, poles or hardware. It can also be used for creating additional workspace clearance.
Diversified’s Auxiliary Arm uses simple hardware for attaching to the tip of any crane, bucket truck or digger derrick boom. The unit features a five-foot mast, which consists of a four-foot clear span fiberglass, and a 12-foot horizontal support arm, which consists of a five-foot clear span fiberglass. Without the use of any tools, the mast and support arm can be easily angled and rotated for proper alignment with the conductors.
The horizontal support arm contains three wire holders with spring-loaded latches and rollers for preventing damage to conductors. The outside holders can be quickly repositioned along the support bar in order to accommodate any conductor spacing. Also, the mast can be used without the support arm to perform single-phase lifts.
The Auxiliary Arm has been field-tested and approved by transmission and distribution maintenance professionals. It can support a maximum balanced vertical load of 1,350 pounds, or an unbalanced vertical load of 1,000 pounds.
Options include regular- or heavy-duty wire holders, neutral wire support and storage bags for the mast and support arm.
