The hardwood used to make cable drums is typically sourced from trees with dense, sturdy wood, such as oak, maple, or beech. This hardwood is chosen for its durability and ability to withstand the weight and tension of the cable wound around it.Hardwood cable drums come in a variety of sizes, depending on the diameter and weight of the cable being wound. They are constructed with a central axial hole, which allows them to be mounted on a spindle or axle for easy unwinding of the cable.
The advantages of using hardwood cable drums include their durability, strength, and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. Unlike plastic or metal drums, hardwood cable drums are less likely to crack or break when exposed to extreme temperatures or weather conditions. They are also environmentally friendly, as they can be easily recycled or reused.
