The Model J2 Cable Lasher is used to lash a single aerial cable or numerous cables to a supporting strand or to an existing lashed cable with stainless steel lashing wire.

• Will lash any single or multiple aerial cables up to 3 in. (76 mm) diameter across on any suspension strand from 1/4 in. (6 mm) to 7/16 in. (11 mm). A factory modification will allow the lasher to accommodate 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) strand if necessary.
86070 J2 Cable Lasher with Case

• Consists of a rotating drum supported on a carriage that provides the mounting for a driving mechanism, cable lifters, cable and strand rollers

• Each of two recessed magazines will hold a 1200 ft. coil of .045 in. (365 m of 1.1 mm wire) lashing wire (or 450 ft. of .065 in.). The Lashing Wire is fully recessed and covered by a gate.

• Features a fast setup procedure, quick coil loading, and automatic drum lock for easy span transfers and smooth forward travel

In response to customer's requests, GMP developed a J2 derivative, P/N 86074, that's capable of large bundle overlashing. We've removed the strand lock and enlarged the opening to prevent cable from rubbing on the housing. Included is a removable front handle to aid in moving the lasher around a pole.

• J2 Lashers make overlashing easy. Just push down on the strand roller knob, rotate it a quarter turn and you can lash additional cables together on previously lashed cable

• Positive internal gear to gear mechanism has no chains or belts to stretch, slip or break

• Constructed with heat-treated, plated steel, stainless steel, brass and aluminum components. Contains sealed and oiless bearings to minimize maintenance and assure durability.
