Pulling Heads

Pulling Heads Wire Management

Graybar knows that saving time and reducing labor costs are critical to your bottom line. As we cut and parallel your wire, we can install pulling heads to get your crew pulling wire immediately. Pulling heads work with both copper and aluminum. We can supply crimp-on pulling heads in bulk or have them installed in our warehouse on each reel to save your crew prep time before the pull.

Paralleling Reels and Stands

Contractors regularly report reducing crew size as well as labor hours by 10 to 40 percent. Spool up to five wires/cables together on one reel, enabling faster and easier cable installation by reducing the number of cable pulls. This can also be provided by spooling three or four cables together on one multi-flange, returnable reel. Compare Graybar wire and cable services to your next estimate to see how much you will save!

Case Study

Graybar Truck Delivery Wire
A contractor needed to pull 250,000 lbs. (1.2 million dollars) of wire in two weeks. Graybar responded with a custom plan of aggressive wire management. Services included: custom cuts, parallel color feeders, and staging to meet varying pull schedules. Graybar utilized a pair of flatbeds to ensure that the jobsite always had wire ready to pull. This complicated pull required 3,000 foot reels of 500 MCM, two cable pushers and one cable puller. The job was completed under budget and in time!
