Safety Conditions
3.

3.
A. SAFETY DEVICES
This machine has the following safety devices:
1. a load-limiting device which automatically stops the endothermic engine once
the maximum pre-set load value has been exceeded.
2. a mechanical negative safety brake to stop movement in case of a lack of
hydraulic pressure.
3. a timing case to protect moving parts where technologically possible.

!DANGER: It is absolutely forbidden to use the machine without


protecting the timing cases or with damaged/disconnected safety
devices.

!ATTENTION: After a serious emergency and/or use of the


negative safety brake, check the wear condition of the discs and
the efficiency of the brake itself. If necessary, replace the brake
discs before re-using the machine.

B. EMERGENCY STOP DEVICE


An emergency stop device acts directly on the diesel engine.

!ATTENTION: Use the emergency stop device ONLY in dangerous


situations and for the operators’ safety.

NOTE: For restoring the machine, unlock the emergency device by


turning the push-button one quarter turn in a clockwise direction.

!PROHIBITION: Use the emergency stop device only for


emergency situations.

C. PERIODIC OPERATIONS
Every day, before starting work, the operator must verify the performance of the
machine’s safety devices.

!ATTENTION: Do not, for any reason, modify the machine’s safety


devices. The manufacturer declines any responsibility as a
consequence of the non-functioning of those devices.

D. RESIDUAL RISKS
The machine has the following residual risks:

1. Sudden break of the rope-conductor. The break of the rope causes


sudden movements of the machine and the rope or conductor connected to the
machine. To minimize the risks, the operator has to:
• Check the rope and replace it as soon as defects or wear signs appear.
• Comply with the working positions indicated in the manual.

1-866-326-6782 www.comstarsupply.com

2. Sudden break of the anchoring stakes. The sudden break of the anchoring
stakes causes machine instability and sudden movements. To minimize the
risks the operator has to:
• Periodically check the anchoring stakes and replace them as soon as
defects or wear signs appear.
• Follow the anchoring suggestions described in the present manual.
• Comply with the working positions indicated in the manual.

3. Entangling or dragging the accessible rotating units. Due to the effective


use of the machine, it is not possible to cover some rotating parts (i.e. winding
of the rope or of the conductor on the bull-wheels or on the driving gears). To
minimize the risks, the operator has to:
• Avoid contact with the machine’s rotating units except for the control
devices.
• Respect the prescriptions indicated in the present manual about wearing
and using necessary safety devices.

4. Limb crushing during loading or removal of the reel and during rope-
conductor loading. These operations have a large risk margin due to the use
of mechanical parts to be moved. To minimize the risks the operator has to:
• Know the directives for accident prevention and apply them.

5. Electrostatic discharges. Since the machine does not have a proper


grounding device for during stringing operations, it is possible to have
dangerous electrostatics discharges on ropes and conductors. To minimize the
risks, the operator has to:
• Know the directives for accident prevention and apply them.
• Check if the job site has a suitable grounding device for the machine-rope-
conductors system.

6. Inhalation of the endothermic engine exhausting gas. This machine


discharges exhaust gas. To minimize the risks, the operator has to:
• Respect the working recommendations indicated in the manual.
• Respect the attentions and prohibitions indicated in the present manual.
• If necessary, use safety devices for respiratory tracts.

7. Command lever that can be locked in working position. For functional


reasons and for comfort, the control joystick will stay where it is positioned. The
machine is equipped with two security devices which prevent the creation of
dangerous situations: an electric limiting device of the pull on the dynamometer
which stops the power station when the stated value is reached, and a pull
limiting device which maintains a preset pulling load regardless of the speed
that the machine is operated. To minimize the risks, the operator must:
• Put the electric limiting device of the pull on a value just superior to the
regulating valves of the pull.
• Plan the desired pull as described in the manual.

Operating Procedure
5.

4.
A. SET-UP
1. Position puller-tensioner slightly to left or to the right of the first overhead
structure being worked with. The machine should not be positioned directly
inline with the overhead structure. A slight offset to the right or left will provide
better engagement during operation.

The puller-tensioner also needs to be positioned far enough away from the
first structure to obtain a 1.5- to 2-degree fleet angle. This distance can be
calculated by multiplying 2.5 by the height of the first block on the pulling
structure. For example if the first block is at 80 feet high, the puller-tensioner
should be positioned 240 feet back.

2. Set rear stabilizer leg by removing the keeper pin (See Figure 1) and lowering
the leg as close to the ground as possible and replacing pin. (See Figure 2)

Figure 1. Remove Keeper Pin Figure 2. Lower Leg, Replace Pin

D. REEVING THE DRUM


1. Reeve the drum appropriately for the type of operation being performed.
When reeving the drums, always start on the inside of the drum, toward the
center of the machine and reeve the rope so that it goes over the top of the
lower drum and enters within the first groove of the upper drum and comes
back around entering on the first groove of the lower drum. The rope then
travels to the second groove of the upper drum. Continue reeving accordingly
moving one position to the left each time. (See Figure 14)

E. GUIDE ROLLERS
1. Align guide rollers to correspond with the pulling position of the reel stand.
Loosen guide roller bracket bolts. Slide guide rollers to the left or right to
properly align. Re-tighten bolts. Thread poly rope through guide rollers.
(See Figure 15)

F. POSITION REEL ELEVATOR


1. Position and connect reel elevator according to specific reel elevator
instructions.

G. DETERMINE PULLING OR
TENSIONING RANGE
Determine the proper pulling or tensioning
range for the particular operation.

The inside scale of the dynamometer


represents pulling or tensioning in the low
range, between 400 to 1,500 foot-pounds.
The center scale represents tensioning in
the high range between 1,500 to 10,000
foot-pounds. The outer scale represents
pulling in the high range between 1,500
and 10,000 foot-pounds. (See Figure 16)
Figure 16. Dynamometer
Scale Settings

1-866-326-6782 www.comstarsupply.com

To determine pulling or tensioning ranges use the following formula: (See Table 2)

A (Final Sag Tension) minus B (Max Pulling Tension Below Final Sag
Tension) minus C (1,000 ft-pounds)= Dynamometer setting

Example:

Final Sag Tension= 2,500 ft-pounds


-minus-
Maximum Pulling Tension Under Final Sag Tension= 500 ft-pounds
Equals: 2,000 ft-pounds
-minus-
Tension setting of 1,000 ft-pounds below pulling tension
Equals: 1,000 ft-pounds

Table 2

H. SET PULLING/TENSIONING RANGE LEVER


1. Position range lever according to the range of pulling or tensioning being
performed. The center position is neutral. The position toward the machine is
high range. And the position moving away from the machine is for low range
operation. To move the lever, pull out and hold the lever detent then push or
pull the lever into the appropriate position. (See Figures 17 & 18) Release
detent.

Figure 17. Pull Out and Hold Figure 18. Push or Pull the Lever
Lever Detent to Appropriate Postition

!IMPORTANT! The pulling range lever will not set when there is
pressure on the drum. Also, never set or adjust pulling range
lever when there is tension on placed conductor. Moving the lever
to neutral will release conductor tension.
