If you or your techs have a difficult time walking out fiber drops; if your longer drop lines are difficult to manage because they tend to 'spring' back, U-TECK has the solution.

Made from solid impact-resistant plastic, Fiber Drop Caddy can handle the everyday wear and tear all your equipment is subjected to, and then some. 

U-TECK's Fiber Drop Caddy is designed to hold and manage Fiber Drop Hand Coils. This caddy is adjustable to accommodate various inside diameters of coils from various manufacturers. The removable spools can be easily adjusted by removing the thumb screws, sliding the (six) black spacers within the yellow spool sides to the desired location, and reinserting the thumb screws. 

This caddy can also be used to pay out fiber coils, wire, or pull tape, that are already on a core with a 1.25-inch inside diameter and a 5.25-inch width, by using the spindle only. 


  • Loads in seconds 
  • Constructed from impact resistant plastic 
  • Fiber coil easily attaches to caddy with just ONE carabiner (included) OR zip ties (not included). 
  • Can handle up to 1,500-foot fiber drops

X-Air⁺ 750-25 heralds a new era in compact solutions for medium-depth drilling, by being fully flexible, between 16 and 25 bar pressure and a flow between 350 and 320 liters per second. 

Engineered with a highly efficient 6.7-liter Cummins engine, it offers toughness and power with half the footprint and weight of the predecessor, enhancing agility and versatility. 

At the heart of the unit’s performance is the AirXpert patented, automatic regulation technology that adjusts operating parameters based on real-time flow requirements. This leads to significant reductions in fuel and energy consumption and optimizes medium-depth drilling operations. 

The dynamic flow boost feature further optimizes performance by enhancing flow rates during drilling's most demanding phases, notably improving flushing and drill stem refilling. This innovation ensures a quicker, more efficient borewell completion process, streamlining operations and significantly cutting down project timelines. 

This X-Air⁺ model is tailored for a wide range of industries, offering robust and efficient solutions for construction, mining, and energy sectors. Additionally, the compressor's quiet operation; reliability; reduced maintenance costs; and logistical ease, due to its significantly reduced weight, simplify transportation and lowers warehousing costs for Atlas Copco fleet owners.
