Designed specifically for utility and construction fleets, the Hydra Bed Reel Lift is an integrated reel transport flatbed that is meant to quickly and safely load and transport conduit or cable without the need for a reel trailer. It is operable by a one-man team and can transport reels weighing up to 5,000 pounds.
“The crew can reduce costly trips to the jobsite because the truck can now tow equipment trailers loaded with boring rigs, excavators and a wide variety of other essential equipment,” explained Jay Russell, Hydra Bed general manager.
In addition, Hydra Bed designed the HydraWinder, a bolt-on attachment for the Reel Lift bed that enables crews to safely and efficiently retrieve or payout cable and conduit from nearly any size reel. The self-stowing design allows for quick adaptations from reel transport to winder, controlling cable backlash and substantial efficiency and safety to busy jobsites.
