CommScope Chooses Larson LCT7500 Cable Trailer for Product testing.
Catawba, North Carolina- CommScope is a respected leader and innovator in the communication/fiber optic cable industry. When they wanted to test a new process of ink jet printing vs. their current impact printing on their fiber optic cable, they chose a Larson LCT 7500 cable trailer to figure 8 the cable and simulate a real world installation test for wear and tear at their headquarters in Catawba, North Carolina, with their executives and engineers in attendance.
To test the durability of the new ink jet process, one side of the cable was printed with their old impact method, the other side the new ink jet. The simulation required the cable to be blown through what would amount to be over two miles of duct. Rick Larson, President of Larson Cable Trailers, was on hand for the test to figure 8 the cable and set up the trailer to blow the cable through ducting equal to normal field conditions.
“This was a great way to simulate field conditions right here at our facility, and to have our engineers and staff on sight to see the results” said Chris Gemme, Director, Field Application Engineering at Comscope. “The Larson 7500 is versatile and impressive, and provided us with exactly the field simulation we needed”.
"...9800 Feet In 36 Minutes..."

"...It just makes sense..."
"I've been in the cable business most of my life. Our company is located in Linton, North Dakota. We bury fiber and power cable for most of North Dakota and northern South Dakota. I shopped around a long time for a cable trailer that was multi-functional and easy to operate. Sure, I could have bought a cheaper frame mounted cable cart but that wasn't what suited my needs. I needed a trailer that we could use day in and day out and stand up to the punishment of being used by many different crewmen. Since I have purchased a Larson Cable Trailer, I have increased my productivity enormously. You can use the LCT for so many tasks. It's so versatile and there's no trailer on the market like it. Sure, you can buy a traditional cable trailer along with a dump truck, flat bed trailer, figure 8 eliminator and add hydraulics to your equipment but that's a lot of money invested when the Larson Cable Trailer can do it all! It just makes sense."
