The lightweight lateral pipe bursting machine from RODDIE slides apart into two components of 50 and 60 pounds that can be lowered and reassembled by hand in the excavated pulling pit. In most cases this machine is powered and operated by a mini-excavator or bobcat tractor. It is capable of 30 to 50 tons of pulling force and can be used on 4-, 6- and 8-inch sewer laterals, but can also replace 1- to 4-inch water services. 888/406-3821;
