The 4" x 4" mast is fitted with a quick mounting assembly which attaches to booms from 5-7/8" x 7-3/8" to 12" x 12", both square and rectangular. The working end of the mast will accept several accessories such as an Epoxiglas® Auxiliary Arm, single lifting wire holder or a sheave for gin work.
The Auxiliary Arm may be swiveled to and locked into any desired position. The single lifting wire holder may also be swiveled to maintain conductor alignment.
The gin sheave will not swivel and is pinned stationary to keep the plane of the sheave in the vertical position at all times.
For use above 15kV, add M48057 insulator to each wireholder; see Page 4155.

The Auxiliary Arm consists of a boom mast and arm of Epoxiglas® construction for mounting on an insulated boom such as the Pitman Polecat®. The arm is designed for use on light construction when handling multiple conductors. The two-legged mast can be mounted on square or rectangular shaped booms designed to handle 2,000 pounds or more. If boom units of lesser ratings are employed, the lifting and maneuvering application of this unit must be reduced accordingly.
Mechanical rating for a balanced vertical load is 1,000 pounds maximum or a limit of the boom arm in the position used, whichever is the least. The 10' arm, recommended for use with braces only, is rated at 200 pounds per conductor holder.
Chance C4000268 roller wireholders are used on the Boom Auxiliary Arm and Mast. Each wireholer is rated for 100 lb. max. side load.

Fork type wireholders - with 1" or 1-1/2" opening, counter balanced latch which closes automatically behind the conductor to hold it in the wireholder. Complete with 2-1/2" pole clamp.
C-Type Wireholder - For rubber glove work, the Chance "C"-type Wireholder is suspended for a 2-1/2" diameter temporary crossarm above the conductor as a hook to receive the conductor after it is untied.
Roller Wireholder - Seven Delrin plastic rollers offer protection to conductors while raising the conductor above the work area. Accommodates conductors up to and including 1-1/2 inches in diameter. The gate is held closed by a springloaded latch which must be manually opened.
Insulators - Epoxy based, available as separate items or can be added to existing auxiliary arm wireholders to upgrade for 34.5 kV use.
