Yale Cordage Pilot Line

Pilot line is something that should always be close at hand for electrical utility workers. Given the important role that this line plays in the stringing process, cutting corners here would be a mistake. We are proud to carry Pilot Line from Yale Cordage, a high-quality product that offers all of the performance characteristics needed to string conductors safely.

Pilot Line Applications

  • Stringing. The designated purpose of this product is as a lead for stringing work. This Yale Cordage Pilot Line is a starting point that will be used to pull a larger rope or cable, which will then be attached to the conductor that is being moved into place. The whole system is only as strong as its weakest component, so don’t trust this job to low-quality pilot line from a lesser supplier. 
  • Other lead line roles. In addition to stringing for electrical utility projects, this product can also be used as a lead line in many other settings. 

Features of Pilot Line

  • Tough exterior. This line features Yale’s innovative Maxijacket coating, which gives it the toughness necessary to stand up to abrasion and maintain its strength out in the field. 
  • Sufficient strength. The smallest 5/16’’ diameter line comes with an average spliced break strength of 3,900 pounds, making it more than strong enough for most stringing jobs. The thickest diameter, 1 inch, offers an average spliced break strength of 41,600 pounds!
  • Bright colors. It’s important to have good visibility for your pilot line out in the field. Four standard colors are available, including red, blue, green, and black. Get the colors you need for your specific project.
