TELSTRA 2kN Certification


PROCEDURE – Application must be made by the Owner / Prospective Owner of the winch directly to Telstra, a $150 fee (current understood price) will be charged for processing & issuing of the Certification Documentation. Telstra will then issue TAGS which are required to be fitted by the manufacturer prior to shipping. This process can take anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks so early attention to this application is recommended. On placement of a firm order with Cable Winches Australia Pty. Ltd, we will supply the appropriate Telstra contact details to expedite the application process.


ADDITIONAL COST – Cable Winches Australia Pty. Ltd. requires an additional fee to cover Telstra documentation, extra guarding to meet Telstra's specifications and tamper proof sealing devices to be fitted to control valves.


IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS – Telstra Certification effectively locks out any Line Pull adjustments, 2kN fixed. Capstan speed and direction of rotation remains operator controllable. The optional 600mm Capstan wheels is not permitted.
