Tidland Reel Spools Overview

The Series 860 is a heavy-duty air shaft designed for maximum reliability and performance in demanding mill environments, reducing the cost and storage of expensive reel spool mandrels. This reel spool shaft utilizes our innovative two-piece expanding elements, with a spiral design that provides 360º of radial grip and intrinsically equalized load distribution.

The advanced features of these reel spool shafts include a two-piece expanding element design, nonmetallic retraction springs, durable poly bladder and a fail-safe multi-circuit air system, with check valves to ensure that a loss of air in one element will not affect the expansion and performance of the other elements. Its ergonomic design also provides increased safety by eliminating the need for dangerous locking collars or wrenches.
