Pushing or pulling new PE pipe into a host pipe using winches, slings on a backhoe bucket or plain brute strength is slow, labor-intensive, potentially dangerous and risks damage to the PE pipe.
New Way: The Pipe Handler easily grips and maneuvers the PE into the host pipe seamlessly without damage. The unit attaches to the end of an excavator’s arm and the entire operation is controlled from the cab. Inserting up to 33 feet of pipe per minute with lengths of 1,600 feet or more is now possible.
Workers never need to handle the pipe or enter the trench. Typical attachments handle 2″ through 6″ PE pipe.
