WORLD'S LARGEST RAMMER
With the highest pulling tonnage in its class, the HammerHead
HB175 static pipe-bursting system has the brute force and versatility to replace 8" (200 mm) to 24" (600 mm) water, sewer and gas mains with ease. Packed with user-friendly features and on-board rod storage, the HB175 allows for simple one-man operation.
Seven hydraulic leveling, lateral and rear 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
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.
Rotational torque assist
HammerHead offers the only pipe-bursting machine that combines thrust and rotational torque during payout allowing you to push and rotate through collapsed or encrusted pipes.
Rod lock vice
A standard feature on HammerHead static bursting systems, the rod lock vice places constant tension on pipe string eliminating rod rebound and increasing production.
Auto rod spinner
The optional rod spinner makes and breaks joints with 800 ft-lb (1085 Nm) of torque and increases overall production.
HammerHead offers an extensive line of tooling for various types of pipe replacement projects. Ductile slitters are available to replace nonfracturable pipes such as ductile iron and steel.
