Reel Lift Hydrabed

Integrated Reel Transport Flatbed


Safe, Dependable, Single-Operator Reel Handling

Since 1983, HydraBed has built a reputation of providing rugged hay handling flatbeds to the ranching industry. During the last three decades, other industries such as oilfield, municipalities and construction have utilized this arm flatbed in their industry as well, as a way of reducing labor and better utilizing ¾ and 1 ton trucks common to every job site. In 2013, Marty Ferguson, owner of FS3 in Annandale, MN, reached out to HydraBed to express his interest in providing a specialized bed designed to handle reels while not compromising the everyday functionality of the flatbed for contractors in the underground utility industry. After a mutually enjoyable four years of research and development with Marty, HydraBed is excited to introduce the Reel Lift Utility HydraBed to the industry.

Features


The Reel Lift Utility HydraBed will load and transport reels weighing up to 5,000 lbs. Every bed comes with a control valve mounted in a top body toolbox mounted at the back corner of the bed. This valve is fully proportional, giving the operator reliable, safe control of the reel, heavy materials or equipment needed to be transported to and from the job site. Engine driven hydraulics are typically utilized to power the bed but electric over hydraulic operation is possible as well. Reel axle jaws are located at the end of the arms and are simple for a single person to safely use. The bed is designed to carry reels over the truck axle for maximum stability. Engineered into the bed is a drop hitch with a Category 5 receiver tube as well as a 30,000 lb. rated gooseneck ball recessed beneath the deck. An optional tool circuit is also available to run hydraulic tools requiring between 5 GPM and 11 GPM of flow and up to 2,200 psi.

Reel Lift Hydrabed can accomodate tool boxes on or under the deck.

One operator can easily, quickly and safely load and transport conduit or cable without the need to pull a reel trailer.

Jobsite reel payout and material engagement is safe and efficient.

The open deck allows transport of other material and equipment.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For it…

“Our guys absolutely love this set up! We can load a reel with one person and load more products like pedestals, handholes, marker posts and anything else we want behind the cab and in front of the reel. We can pull other equipment to the jobsite, such as Mini Excavators, Vacuum Excavators, HDD equipment, or bring more reels on a single, double or triple reel trailer. The hydraulic tool circuit also comes in handy when we need it to run pumps, saws, tampers and other equipment.”Warren Sunderland, President T-Ray Construction
“This piece of equipment has helped us be more efficient at all types of jobsites. In crowded metro environments by being able to haul a reel of cable or duct on the truck bed, we can eliminate another trailer…The hydraulic tool circuit can run any of our dual line hydraulic tools and we can run a fiber optic cable blower from the tool circuit, too. Being able to lay the arms flat on the deck when we are not transporting reels allows us to haul more materials and equipment, similar to a flatbed…We recommend the Hydra Bed Utility Series to anyone serious about getting the work done on time.”Jay Fischer, Asset Manager MP Nexlevel, LLC
