Cable Plow models
Our Cable plows offer high quality and performance, from one professional to another.
For heavy duty work and demanding conditions
The new Viestra Cable Plows were originally designed for cable-laying sites in eastern Finland, where machines are really put to the test, work is done in two shifts and there is almost no possibility of maintenance. Viestra Cable Plows have a frame structure designed to last, they are very easy to use and the maintenance solutions have proven themselves functional. Viestra Cable Plows offer years of reliable and efficient plowing. Viestra’s Cable Plow models are suitable for excavators of between 8 and 30 tons.
An easy-to-use, hassle-free choice
No special skills are required to use the Viestra Cable Plow – a quick introduction to best practices is enough. The Viestra Cable Plow is virtually maintenance-free, leaving more time for productive work. The tip of the Cable Plow is replaceable, and we recommend replacing it regularly to ensure that the Cable Plow can easily retain its plowing depth. The only daily maintenance required is to check the claw on the Cable Plow’s tip – the Viestra Cable Plow is otherwise maintenance-free.
The durable Viestra Cable Plow
The Viestra Cable Plow has a strong frame designed to withstand even the hardest wear and the stresses of shifting rocks out of the plowing route. It can also withstand traversing rocks when the plow is used for pre-plowing. Cables/pipes for installation are easy to add to and remove from the cable plow. The Cable Plow’s openable rear case is light and easy for the assistant to handle, as the indicator tape holder is attached to the frame of the Cable Plow.
The Viestra Cable Plow has been developed on cable network construction sites since the 1980s
The plow model has been built in such a way that the Cable Plow reliably remains at plowing depth. This ensures that the power output by the excavator can be used to pull the plow, as the excavator does not need to push down on the plow to keep it at the correct depth. The Viestra Cable Plow is easy to manoeuvre thanks to the folding rear part, which requires very little force. This solution means that power is transferred efficiently, less fuel is consumed and the plow is more environmentally friendly. The Cable plow’s feeder tray does not have any welding seams, so it is not possible for the plowed cable to sustain surface damage.
