Re: RANT - 750MCM cable sucks

One pulling, one soaping and one turning the three reels.

As a yellow hat, that was my introduction into cable pulling, standing in a wet pit with rubbers on while slopping snake snot on the cable as it was pulled in.

I always enjoy hearing the different regional slangs. It's usually a far less politically correct term that I hear.

I've had to pull 777 before, fortunately it was a pretty short length. We still ended up using a forklift to tug on it as the come-along we had just wasn't doing it.
