Yes. Even though our pullers can create up to 20,000 or 40,000 pounds of line pull, they can only create that if there is that much resistance to the pull. If there is only a 100 pounds resistance, our puller only creates enough to overcome that resistance. For fibre optic cable, we suggest you utilize a capstan on the auxiliary drive shaft rather than the main reel drive. We suggest the capstan marketed by GMP that utilizes a slip clutch to protect the fibre-optic cable should the resistance exceed the cable strength.
