Industrial Electrician – Cable jointing at a cannabis farm – Part 1

In this one we’ve been tasked with partially rewiring a building supply after it was tapered with to supply a cannabis farm. In this first part we show us pulling in a …


  1. Just a thought,but could be an idea if you had sound kind of rounded over cover for the end of the cable! That way if it was to catch something itโ€™d slide by instead of snagging! Probably be easier to get round bends too! They use something similar to dragged trees out the forest after they have been felled! Just stops anything catching! Just a thought!

  2. Just imagining the conversation when you got home! โ€œWhat have you been doing today?โ€ โ€œDid a massive joint at a cannabis farmโ€ ๐Ÿคฃ

  3. I think you should have pulled the cable in from the other end, and used the truck to pull it, just feed the cable in from inside the building, keep you out if the crappy pit and muck and in the dry. Why use man power when you got horse power.

  4. Not long ago, my IBEW Union brothers and I finished up 30 high voltage splices at an enormous psychiatric hospital. Underground in a confined space, down a manhole into a duct system. Using tripods, fall protection, harnesses, air-quality sniffers, fresh air blowers Etc.. Etc…

  5. Cracking video this! Really enjoy seeing this side, largest Iโ€™ve ever had to deal with was a 120mm 3 4 core and that was a beast…took about 8 of us to pull it in I was a long run of about 110meters which was real ballache but that one youโ€™ve got is a beast!

    Nice bit of scrap that too!

    Great to see this side and all the info you pick up from it nice one Mike ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

  6. Interesting video mate I've only ever done a job like that once that was enough! Can I ask why not cut the original cable where it goes into the cannabis joint then joint a new length if cable to that then joint that onto the rest of the feed to the paint shop

  7. Mate that looks like a total ball ake you can sling in cables all day long but its always the last foot or a mtr that will be a total ball ake.๐Ÿ‘

  8. Great work boys and what a shitty job, shades of long ago. I used to carry a comealong with me. It gives a nice slow easy pull so you can check cable safety during the pull. I guess you could also use a block and tackle but they are never around when you need them. Also a clove hitch is a very handy knot to know for the rope job, a rolling hitch is even better they can pull to the right or left. Your gonna love your new portable band saw they are so good, no more puffing out. Looking forward to part 2. Stay safe and well boys๐Ÿ‘

  9. Need better comms with your bother. When you both pulled at the same moment, the cable moves over a foot at at time. Then you seem to go out of sync and neither of you can get it going on your own.

    โ€˜Pull, two, three, pull, two, three, pull, two threeโ€™ and youโ€™ll probably find itโ€™ll move every time you tug.

    Or get a winch (hand job will do ๐Ÿคช), attached to a rafter in the shed, so the pull is in a straight line.

  10. I feel your pain ๐Ÿคฃ. Cordless bandsaw is the way to go ๐Ÿ˜œ I also use Pentel fine tip white permanent marker for marking SWAs up, great for onsite and for where to cut for glanding off ๐Ÿ’ช

  11. Great vid mate. You should make a video on those knots used. Can't imagine everyone will want to watch it admittedly but what a brilliant bit of knowledge that would be for anyone who does.

    Maybe make a #shorts vid? ๐Ÿ˜
