1. Size matters:

The drum rollers are chosen in accordance to the reel you are using. It should neither be too small, nor too large; just the right size.

2. Weight is to be considered:

You mustn’t underestimate the weight of a cable drum. For a large and heavily-weighted drum, heavy duty rollers are adequate for the job. Majority of such rollers are made up of steel, which guarantees the greatest durability.

3. Rushing is out of the question!

Rollers provide triple the speed when pushed lightly, minimizing the need for sturdy man-labor. The sole purpose is to get work involving heavy load done strategically. If you rush it, you could cause damage to not only the reel but to the cable itself.

4. Amount of laborers:

Remember; too many cooks spoil the broth. You’ll need fewer workers to supervise the job.

5. Care and caution are necessary:

Use a strong grip when handling the cable drum on the rollers. The slightest mishap could cause the drum to slip in an unwanted direction, causing destruction. Wear gloves to avoid getting splinters.
