Safety is a concern for all manufacturing plants, and costs for non-compliant work practice can be expensive, so operators need tools to make their jobs safer and easier.

The Reel Walker features a design that incorporates a free-rolling shaft, available in 50, 76 or 127mm diameters (2", 3" or 5"). It also features a grip enhancing arbor sleeve, self-lubricating bearings, ergonomic shaped handle, non-slip hand grip and powder-coated finish.
The device is suitable for reels up to 1,250mm (49"), and reel weights up to 660kg (1,450 lb).
