General Machine Products Company, Inc. reintroduces its repair facility dedicated to the reconditioning of the company’s brand of cable lashing machines. Staffed by a team of experts with decades of hands-on experience, GMP’s Lasher Repair Center facility thoroughly inspects, reconditions or replaces worn-out or damaged cable lasher components with original quality parts. Cable lashing machines, sometimes called “lashers” or “spinners”, are designed to wind stainless steel wire around telephone, power, and other utility cable, thereby securing or “lashing” the cable to the supporting messenger strand that spans between utility poles. Since its introduction, GMP has produced over 30,000 lashing machines, with some manufactured in the 1950’s still in service today.
Accepted as the industry standard, GMP lashers have been known to operate typically for 25 years or more, lashing thousands of miles of cable in their lifetimes. This wear and tear can necessitate factory-authorized repairs during the life of the machine. The Lasher Repair Center provides a convenient solution for keeping lashers on the job longer. GMP also discounts the parts used in its repairs, adding more value to this needed maintenance function.
To offset the purchase price of brand new units, the company also accepts GMP brand lasher trade-ins. Contact the sales department at 215-357-5500 or info@GMPtools.com for details about the lasher trade-in program or visit www.GMPtools.com.
