iTOOLco Launches New Multi-Rollers in 24” and 36” Sizes

OAK RIDGE, TN. (May 4, 2017) – iTOOLco, a leading developer of products that increase safety, save time, lower worker effort, and improve results for hard-working contractors and the professionals they employ, announced today the introduction of Multi-Rollers™ in two sizes – 24” and 36”.

iTOOLco Multi-Rollers were designed with adjustable picking arms that allow users to fine tune the adjustment angle without extra rigging during wire pulls. Both sizes have two picking arms – each with five adjustment holes so rigging the perfect angle is quick and easy.

Multi Rollers also feature 5” wide profiled phenolic rollers that ride on rated bearings. With extra deep side walls (made from 1/4″ 6061 aluminum) for light weight durability, wire stays safely nested between the tool’s side walls during wire pulls. Perfect for vertical pulls, Multi-Rollers can also be installed horizontally for navigating difficult corners.

“Our new Multi-Rollers are much easier to rig at the proper pulling angle because of the flexibility of the adjustable picking arms,” said David Jordan, President at iTOOLco. “The opportunities to reconfigure for any job are unlimited.”

The 36” Multi-Roller (MR36) has a 36” radius, is 58.66″L x 6″W x 24″H and weighs 83 lb. The 24” Multi-Roller (MR24) has a 24” radius, is 42.5″L x 6″W x 24″H and weighs 70 lb. Both Multi-Rollers come with a six year warranty and are manufactured in the USA with global components.

Bolt-on Wire Bar for MC Cart

iTOOLco Launches Innovative New MC Cart™ for Transporting MC Cable Quickly and Safely

KNOXVILLE, TN. (September 15, 2016) – iTOOLco, a leading developer of products that increase safety, save time, lower worker effort, and improve results for hard- working contractors and the professionals they employ, is pleased to announce the launch of the MC Cart™. The MC Cart is a revolutionary new cart designed to transport up to two 1000’ spools and one 250’ coil of MC Cable quickly at one time (as sold).

Strong yet lightweight, the MC Cart makes it possible for electricians to rough-in an entire suite using only a single cart to transport the wire required. All-welded steel construction, the MC Cart won’t tip over and glides effortlessly around jobsites on heavy-duty wheels.  With a unique front-loading carriage, the MC Cart eliminates the need to lift heavy spools. Loading two 1000’ spools is as easy as tipping the MC Cart forward and rolling the spools into the axle saddle.

A 250’ coil of MC Cable slides easily onto the cart using the Cable Mate™ — an accessory that comes with the MC Cart.  The Cable Mate keeps the coil neat and untangled. Swiveling smoothly on the Bolt-on Wire Bar, the Cable Mate improves the pre-fab process and is perfect for service trucks. The MC Cart can hold a total of seven coils of wire with the purchase of an additional Bolt-on Wire Bar and six additional Cable Mates.

“Responding to the safety needs of our customers, we designed the MC Cart to ensure safe mobility of MC Cable without heavy lifting or the fear of tipping.” said David Jordan, President at iTOOLco. “The new MC Cart delivers superior maneuverability and durability — as well as the performance our customers have come to expect from iTOOLco.”

The MC Cart also has a flexible configuration with interchangeable components. The Bolt-on Wire Bar can hold two 12-1/2″ spools and like the Cable Mate, one Bolt-on Wire Bar is included with the MC Cart.  Additional Cable Mates and Bolt-on Wire Bars can be purchased separately to deliver the ultimate flexibility on the jobsite.
