A cable pusher is a device or equipment whose primary usage is to store cables safely, thus preventing twisting or sustaining damage to the cables. It is very important to carefully wrap the cable around the pusher before carrying it from one place to another. This ensures that the cable remains unharmed.
You can buy a cable pusher from a retailer both online and in store. You can also buy an electric cable pusher which is easier to operate and gets the job done much faster. Machinery of this kind requires proper care and maintenance, here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. When it comes to storage, the cable pusher as well as the spooled cable should always be stored in a cool, dry place. If there is any moisture, it can cause the equipment to start gathering rust. It can also spread to the cables which are then damaged and can alter of affect their functioning such as transmission. Moisture in the wiring can also cause short circuiting, leading to fire hazards.
2. Furthermore, properly maintaining a cable pusher also entails regular cleaning typically after every time you put the machine to use. Construction sites are where you will mostly put a cable pusher to use and, in such environments, it is very easy for dust to gather and overtime a buildup of dust can cause major problems. Combined with dust and moisture, it can worsen so; make sure there is no moisture when you put it safely back inside the store-room.
The above tips will help you keep your electric cable pusher in shipshape.
