WORLD'S LARGEST RAMMER
HB100 static pipe-bursting system offers 100 tons (89 tonnes) of pulling power — 25 percent more power in a smaller package — the most in its class. The HB100 has the muscle to replace water, sewer and gas lines as large as 16" (400 mm), yet is compact enough to replace lines as small as 3" (75 mm).
Two levers control all pipe-bursting functions — a first in larger tonnage static-bursting machines.
Simple one-man operation and on-board storage for 150 feet of rod allow the HB100 to complete a 400' (123 m) job, including payout and pullback in only two hours.
Optional hydraulic leveling jacks adjust to place the machine on grade and aligned with the existing utility. Adjustments can be made during the burst as conditions change without stopping the burst process.
Proven rod design
HammerHead uses a heat-treated alloy rod that weighs only 27 pounds (12 kg). An API-style joint handles thrust loads encountered when pushing around sweeping bends and encrusted or collapsed pipes compared to loose joint rod designs, which can buckle in encrusted or collapsed pipes.
Rod lock vice
A standard feature on HammerHead static-bursting systems, the rod lock vice places constant tension on the pipe string eliminating rod rebound and increasing production.
Auto rod spinner
The optional rod spinner makes and breaks joints with 250 ft-lb (339 Nm) of torque and helps to increase overall production.
HammerHead offers an extensive line of tooling for various types of pipe replacement projects. Ductile slitters are available to replace non-fracturable pipes such as ductile iron and steel.
