Drone With Flamethrower Clears Debris From Power Lines… Seems Safe Right?

Like they always say, if the opportunity presents itself, it’s a better decision, in most cases, to work smarter instead of working harder, especially if working smarter comes alongside the byproduct that means you’re not going to be in is much danger with a little bit extra equipment on hand. When you look at this situation, that’s exactly the case as a drone is in place to take on a job that might put a human in some pretty reasonable danger. Instead, the machinery removes some of the direct human interaction to the point where the danger is minimized to a pretty small level.
As it turns out, sometimes there might be trash or potentially even some sort of growth that has to be removed from power lines as to not inhibit them from doing their job. If that debris continues to hang in there, not only is it going to put stress on the wire, but it also could bring down the entire system, meaning that eventually a pole or something of the like might break or bend. In order to make sure that this doesn’t happen, a drone is sent up into the air, complete with a flamethrower, to burn away at the piece of debris that is hanging where it shouldn’t be.
If you follow along down in video below, you’ll be able to witness how exactly this use of technology is going in and helping workers to do their job more efficiently and safely to protect the powerlines hanging over your head, making sure that you have electricity to your home or business at all times. Nobody likes an outage and with equipment like this, we can prevent that kind of situation along with keeping workers in a much better place. It really seems like a win-win all the way around.
