Figure 4— Three Phase Lift Set where all three wires

are lifted at once.

Figure 3— Wire Tongs, lever lift, link stick, and rope

blocks used on heavy conductors.

(1) Supports

• Maximum recommended load for Saddles with exten-

sions is 800 lbs.

• Lever Lift will exceed Wire Tong strength when load is

properly applied in line with pole

(2) Working Loads

• Any elevated structure requires an analysis in deter-

mining the load

• When calculations are impractical or unnecessary, and

a pole is slightly higher than neighboring poles, con-

sider total weight of span on each side as maximum

working load

• Does not apply to hilltop structures where special

analysis must be made to determine load

• When working load is greater than that given in the

table for a particular Wire Tong, it will be necessary

to use double Wire Tongs with double-type lever lift,

or use larger Wire Tong

(3) Epoxiglas® Working Loads

• Maximum working loads are based on a pole deflec-

tion of approximately one inch when used in man-

ner shown

• Cantilever values, with a safety factor of more than

two, are: 1-1/2” – 375 ft.-lb.; 2” – 900 ft.-lb.; 2-1/2” –

1500 ft.-lb.; and 3” – 2500 ft.-lb.

• Tensile strength values, with a safety factor more

than two, are: 1-1/2” – 1500 lb.; 2” – 2000 lb.; 2-1/2”

– 2500 lb.; and 3” – 3000 lb.
