I Am Totally Impressed!

I bet it’s not cheap but damn.

If you have ever had to fish wires through conduit, you know this thing is cool.

Impressive

    • They look like utility sweeps, not true 90 degree turns… but I could be mistaken, I always put a pull box just after 3 90’s as it is hard to pull even them.

  1. If I can’t push a fish tape through the conduit, I use a shop vac and pull a string trough it and then pull wire.

    Seldom is there a conduit that you can’t vacuum a string through.

  2. My business partner modified an old salt water pole and reel to pull wire. Pole was busted, so he cut it down to about 12″ past the reel. Uses, I think, 100lb test nylon line. Vacuum it into the conduit, reel it back out. We often have to pull control wire out around 100′. Works good up to about #8 wire.

      • I should have mentioned; We work inside of factory’s. This is used on control wiring for machinery being installed/modified. So, nope, no corrosion problems.

        • I was being kinda round about smart assed… You stated your partner used an old SALT water pole… salt and connections and terminations are not friends of each other.

    • I had a 100′ plus run with a sweep type rigid elbow and a single
      pull box. In place of a vacuum, I used an air nozzle. I cut a
      small piece of shop rag, tied nylon twine to rag and used
      electrical tape to make a ball. Hold twine in one hand and
      use an air nozzle in the other. You have to maintain a little
      drag or the twine or will ball up inside the conduit.

      During a shutdown at the Chevron refinery, I witnessed a
      half-dozen guys pulling some very heavy power cables using
      the Egyptian method. The foreman was yelling 1,2,3 pull
      repeatedly, and during a break, I asked the foreman if he
      was aware they made machines for that. He responded
      that this technique was quicker and easier.
