The Model PD-33M pipe bursting machine from Pow-r Mole Sales is designed to replace existing underground pipes 2 to 6 inches in diameter. Its nonslip cylinder-activated jaws prevent cable damage while providing 60,000 pounds of pulling force. It offers a cost-effective alternative to opencut excavation, which reduces customer disruption and increases company profits. The process replaces the existing pipe with a fused HDPE pipe, which eliminates all joints, and allows the operator to pull through bends such as 45-degree fittings. This system is modular, and can be easily disassembled and reassembled for manhole and basement applications. With a compact design and very small footprint of only 20 by 20 inches, this unit can be used in tight locations. 800/344-6653;
