90 ft. of 3" PVC with 1 90 deg. sweep at the meter socket and 1 at the other end stubbed up about 3 ft.
How hard would it be to pull (2) 350s and (1) 300 kcmil by hand?

My "Pulll-o-meter" calculator comes up with 0.75 Gazillion degrees of "hard."

Pipe's plenty big but the 90's will kill ya.


There are 10 types of people. Those who know binary, and those who don't.

Better soap 'er up good! If your 90's are pvc and not galv. rigid, you'll get some drag on the wire.

shouldn't be too hard. I've pulled 4-500s longer by hand. (there were four of us) key is to swab the conduit prior to the pull. dirt in the pipe really slows you down.

Agreed....we've pulled longer runs. Just use lots of soap. Make sure you had your wheaties that day too.

You shouldn't have a problem but, if you are going to do this sort of thing regularly, I would recommend one of any number of different portable pullers.
We do alot of bigger industrial wiring and even a small greenlee chugger is a valuable item.
Good luck
