Utility Solutions Inc. has added another ice removal product to their overhead distribution line. The patented Ice Breaker – Spline End Attachment is a solid aluminum roller that attaches to a hot stick to remove ice on overhead power lines. Utilities now have three unique options to safely remove ice.
The company's first product in this category was the Ice Wacker – Polymeric Ice Removal Tool. Crews attach this tool to any standard fiberglass hot stick to remove ice and debris from overhead distribution systems. The solid polymer material can withstand lots of abuse and eliminates unnecessary damage to fiberglass end sections.
Last year, Utility Solutions Inc. debuted their second ice removal product, called the BLUE STRIPE Heavy Duty Ice Roller. This is a complete ice removal system that includes a large aluminum roller head, foam-filled fiberglass sections (5 feet or 10 feet), and a swivel pull ring. Each component attaches with a metal push-button, which makes for easy transport and storage. This unique device can handle long runs of ice-covered overhead lines.
