The Metro
     
 

The variable speed power cable feed makes The Metro easier for your customers to use. The automatic feed drives cable into the line at up to 20 feet per minute. Put the feed in reverse and it retracts the cable easily too.

The Power cable feed and guide tube combination allows the cable to feed smoothly into the line while keeping your customers hands clean and away from the spinning cable.

The Metro's heavy-duty reinforced frame takes rough handling in the field. The big 10” heavy duty wheels and a truck loading wheel make it easier to transport the machine to and from the job. A cutter holder on the frame keeps all the cutters within easy reach. And the fold down handle makes the machine more compact to take up less space in the truck.

With tough 9/16” Flexicore® cable, the Metro clears 2” – 3”, and most 4” lines up to 100 feet long

The Metro
 


Power Cable Feed
The Metro's power cable feed is real labor saver. It enables you to vary feeding speed in and out of the line and gives you better control when working tough stoppages
  Folding Handle
The handle is tall enough to make it easy to move to the job, yet quickly folds to take less room in your truck.
  Easily Transportable
Ten-inch heavy-duty semi-pneumatic wheels roll easily over rough terrain to and from the job. Truck loading wheel in the handle makes it easy for one person to lift the machine onto a truck bed.
 
 

Reverse Switch
A momentary contact reverse switch protects the cable by preventing the operator from running the machine in reverse for more than a few seconds at a time.

 

Heavy gauge wire is coiled around 49 strand wire rope and then heat treated. This cable has unequalled strength and the right amount of flexibility. It’s so tough, it has a one year warranty against defect or breakage.

Flexicore Patent Nos. 2,244,735 and 2,849,870
