In general, cable reel jacks should not be used in cable or strand placing operations that require braking of the reel.
These operations should be performed with the reel mounted on a trailer that is equipped with a brake.
When used on soft or uneven ground the jacks should be placed on heavy planks or lags to prevent sinking or tipping. A reel of cable may weigh as much as several tons; therefore its movement must be controlled at all times. Careful watch must be maintained throughout the operation to ensure that the reel is level and that the jacks have not sunk into soft earth.
Jacks should be stored flat to minimize the possibility of tipping, and with the screw assembly fully retracted to protect the threads.
