Some jobs we do go real easy and then it seems the next job is really tough. But the jobs have the same footage of cable, what gives?

Since I am not on your particular job I can’t give you a definitive answer. However, there are many aspects that effect pulling ease besides the amount of cable. Some of those are cable type, cable sheath, duct type and condition, number of sweeps and their angles in the duct and duct cleanliness. A duct that has flooded many times over the years and filled with silt is always a tough pull. Electrolysis and lead sheath cables create a situation where a cable can virtually weld itself to the duct. A duct that has cracked or settled can create tough pulls. The easy ones are always nice, but a lot of things can be going on down below that will make it tough.
