GMP Introduces Gentle Air Cable Blower

General Machine Products (KT), LLC, a subsidiary of Klein Tools, introduces the Gentle Air Micro Fiber Cable Blower (P/N 89916). Engineered to install micro fiber cable into pre-installed 0.15- to 0.27-inch-diameter microduct, the Gentle Air will place 0.03- to 0.11-inch-diameter cable at speeds up to 300 feet per minute. This, along with low maintenance and high durability, makes the Gentle Air an excellent value.

Powered by a conventional, cordless drill (not included), a drive roller with precision clutch introduces the micro fiber cable into the microduct’s opening. The clutch feature enables the operator to select a custom torque range (zero to infinity). From there, compressed air propels the cable throughout the length of the microduct to its destination.

Ideal for smaller jobs, where traditional, larger blowing machines are unsuitable, the Gentle Air’s versatility, compact size and maneuverability are well-suited for both interior and exterior fiber cable placement applications.
Other Features Include:

  • Electronic monitoring system provides digital read-outs of speed and distance
  • Lightweight, precision- machined and durable construction
  • Integral air valve and pressure gauge
  • Can be operated by a single person
