HD Electric Co.’s new FT-1 Fuse Tool assists in the removal and installation of most cutout-type overhead fuse links. The Fuse Tool has a 7-inch fuse receiver that provides increased safety and greater control by keeping the fuse link securely in place during removal and installation. The built-in switch hook is then used to close in the fuse link.
By using the Fuse Tool, line crews are able to quickly and safely remove and install most cutout-type overhead fuse links found in overhead distribution systems. An instructional video is also available on the company’s web site. (www.hdelectriccompany.com/fusetool.htm)
