Our telecoms plough launch and recovery system features a 30t SWL A-frame designed to interface with the Royal IHC MD3 telecoms plough and handle it over its range of operation for safe deployment, towing and recovery. This is a wide angle A-Frame which incorporates an adjustable towing position designed to cater for a wide range of cable lay deck layouts, the A-frame can also be used with a range of 3rd party ploughing systems and is suitable for use in H=3.5m. The hydraulic tow winch has render capabilities and can achieve a maximum load of 80t which allows the system to deal with any ‘snag’ event whilst towing.
