Welcome to the Advantage Equipment Website

Advantage Equipment is synonymous with cable handling equipment, from cable drum racking, cable coiling machines (also called cable reel machines, cable reeling machines, cable cutting machines, cable spooling machines, drum winding machines, take up and pay out machines).

The cable racking is purposely designed to safely store and operate cable drums. We start with the small rack for cable drums of 500mm diameter and less. The drums used on this this rack are cardboard, plastic or plywood in the main.

Free standing the Piccolo can be the answer to the small operation or to tidy up those small drums found lying around a wholesaler’s warehouse. Larger racking for drums up to 1.5 metres is designed to your specification and can carry up to 5 tonnes per section.

This rack is tailor made to suit your available space and drum sizes and weight. To save on space we also have the DOUBLE DENSITY rack which allows twice as much cable drums to be stacked in the space of single drum stacking.

To protect the rack from accidental damage caused by forklifts we supply as standing protection guards fitted to the base of the rack in high visibility colour.

To protect your staff from injury we also supply Safety-Lift simply fit to the forklift and the drum is held safely in position in correct bay in rack.

The range of cable coiling and drum winding machines is immense. There will be a machine to suit your needs, if not we will make you one to suit. We start with a very basic drum or spooler, this can be hooked up to a measuring device and either mounted to a bench or we can supply the whole lot on an industrial wheeled cart with locking wheels. For the small busy wholesaler the all in one manual coiling machine may be more appropriate, either with or without built in drum rollers. The basic machine, without drum rollers, is probably the smallest foot print available, less than 1 metre square. The machine with built in drum rollers has the added advantage of a high level drum roller for storing often used drums of twin & earth or for broken drums.
For the smaller wholesaler that requires an electric driven machine these can be offered at very affordable prices, often modified manual machines through to purpose made machines.For the larger cable distributor we have a range of electro-hydraulic machines to suit most applications. They range form 500kg capacity through to 6 tonne machines.In addition to these machines we can also offer a range of payout machines from 1 tonne to 6 tonnes.
In addition to these machines we can also offer a range of payout machines from 1 tonne to 6 tonnes. As you would expect we also supply a range of measuring heads. From the very small accurate devise which measures cable, wire, rope, flat section tube and copper braid, to heads that can cope with cable diameters of 100mm diameter. These large measuring heads can also allow the cable to be entered sideways.
