PAKADERINGA Feedlot's Cattle cable crimper
What's the issue/challenge?
Fixing heavy cattle cable to eyelets can be a time consuming, difficult job, and can often pose a personal safety risk. Pakaderinga Feedlot's Cattle Cable Crimper innovation has helped their maintenance team bypass these issues.
How does the innovation/idea work?
The Cattle Cable Crimper makes attaching cattle cable to eyelets safer, faster and easier. It achieves this by mechanically putting a tight 180 degree bend in the cable, which facilitates easy fitment of cable clamps. Watch the above video to see the Cattle Cable Crimper in action.
Cost of Innovation:
$100 - 150
