Felling Releases Re-Engineered Utility Reel “R” Series


The Felling Trailers’ Utility Cable Reel “R” series model lines have undergone design modifications to increase operator safety and ease of use. The most significant update to the model design is the auto-locking reel bar system. The auto-locking reel bar system eliminates the use of pins and brackets; it now utilizes a locking plate system.

The new Reel design with the auto-locking system debuted to the Utility/Telecom industry at the 2021 Utility Expo in Louisville, Kentucky. The “R” series product line offers payload capacities ranging from 790 kg to 6,130 kg. All models have the capability to load up to a 3 m diameter reel.

For enhanced operator and transport safety, the auto-locking reel bar system’s locking plates automatically open when lowering the reel to the ground for unloading. As the reel is loaded and raised, the locking plates automatically close to contain the reel bar. Once the reel is raised to transport position, spring-loaded pins automatically lock the slides into place providing visual validation to the operator that the reel is properly locked for transport.

Solid and reliable, Felling’s “R” series continues to offer a broad selection of options and features to ensure the trailer is built to the spec that utilities/municipalities need for their applications.

“These are quality-built trailers that provide the versatility and functionality that utility workers need for transporting, deploying, and retrieving material," said Mark Rapp, Felling Trailers Utility & Telecom Product Specialist.
The new “R” series design was released into production in Fall 2022.
