At the 2019 NECA Tradeshow and Convention, Southwire showcased a few excellent products. One that was exceptionally innovative was the Maxis™ XD6 Puller. This mid-range workhorse puller was made in America and designed for difficult environments. It has on-board wheels and axle, a low voltage foot switch for a hands-free operation, and an on-board tension indicator. It also has an extension arm available for additional length, which can be used for difficult set ups.

Southwire’s other product, the Maxis™ 10K tensiometer is untethered and battery-powered for maximum adaptability. Its wireless design allows for remote monitoring, pull speed, and distance pull. It has a USB port for easy data extraction, a touch screen with easy control settings, and it easily inserts into rope-line without having to be dissembled.
