Bursting

Spartan Tool UnderTaker

The UnderTaker pipe bursting system from Spartan Tool will replace existing sewer laterals with new, seamless, high-flow HDPE pipe from 2 to 6 inches in diameter. The system sets up quickly without any tools and handles up to three 45-degree bends in the existing pipe. No component weights over 70 pounds, so it’s easy to position for any job with minimal disruption to the customer’s yard or business. 800/435-3866; www.spartantool.com.
 

TRIC Tools X30 

The small, lightweight X30 pipe bursting unit from TRIC Tools is ideally used to replace 4- and 6-inch sewer laterals. It is designed for home sewer bursting of 1- to 6-inch lines and weighs less than 85 pounds. Cylinders cycle quickly with matching high-pressure hydraulic power packs, resulting in fast job completion. Complete down-hole assembly consists of puller, pulley base and resistance plate. The compact unit has a monolithic, gun-drilled hard aluminum cylinder body for simplicity and easy maintenance, and a steel pulling bridge for extra reliability and longevity. 888/883-8742; www.trictools.com.

 

Excavating

Doosan DX255LC

The 184 hp DX255LC crawler excavator from Doosan Infracore America Corporation includes a selectable Smart Power Control with Variable Speed Control and Pump Torque Control that work together to improve machine efficiency while maintaining productivity and reducing fuel consumption. A 7-inch LCD screen allows operators to continue monitoring parameters while viewing the rearview and/or side-view camera image. Operators can configure the idle time from 3 to 60 minutes. When enabled, the feature will shut down the excavator’s engine when the preset idle time is met. It comes with improved antiskid plates for easier engine access for machine maintenance, auto belt tensioner, fan and air conditioning. Options include straight travel pedal, which allows the operator to travel in a straight line more easily; two-way auxiliary hydraulic pedal (in addition to joystick control); diesel-powered coolant heater for cold starts; cab guarding for special applications; additional work lamps; rotate circuit hydraulic piping; and an intelligent floating boom. 770/831-2200; www.doosanequipment.com.
 

John Deere 35G

The 35G compact excavator from John Deere offers a 23 hp Final Tier 4 diesel engine, with auto-idle that slows engine speed when the pilot-control levers are momentarily released for reduced fuel consumption and noise. A new door improves entry and visibility to the left-hand side of the machine. The door design also widens the size of the opening for entering the cab. Within the operator station, a multifunction monitor provides a coolant temperature and fuel gauge, clock, two trip meters, regeneration inhibit, auto shutdown control and machine hours. A third service door provides improved access to the cooling core for cleaning purposes. The cores were also positioned side by side to permit easier access. It can be equipped with an optional, hydraulic, adjustable-angle backfill blade with 25 degrees of adjustment to both the left and right. A standard coupler accommodates a wide variety of available attachments such as hydraulic breakers and augers. Rubber tracks, steel tracks and steel tracks with rubber pads are available. 800/503-3373; www.johndeere.com.
 

Petrofield Industries Tornado F3

The Tornado F3 hydrovac from Petrofield Industries holds 13 cubic yards of mud and more than 1,600 gallons of freshwater. The key components include a water tank to excavate from, a mud tank where spoils are held, a water pump, a boiler to heat the water, and a positive displacement vacuum blower (3,800 to 6,400 cfm) to pull the spoils to the tank via boom. The boom has a 342-degree rotation and a 26-foot reach. All of the critical components are housed in an insulated and heated aluminum van body. The mud sweep means the tank doesn’t need to be hoisted to empty it. This eliminates the dangers of dumping on uneven ground and near overhead power lines. 877/340-8141; www.tornadotrucks.com.
 

Super Products Mud Dog 650 

The Mud Dog 650 compact truck-mounted hydroexcavator from Super Products has a 6.5-cubic-yard debris dump body, making it easy to maneuver. It is ideal for confined urban settings, rough compact terrains and remote hard-to-reach locations. It has a 500-gallon freshwater tank and offers water pressures up to 10 gpm at 2,500 psi, while its 8-inch positive displacement vacuum system provides airflow of 3,600 cfm at 18 inches Hg. It has an efficient single-engine design and a simple control panel setup. 800/837-9711; www.superproductsllc.com.
 

Vac-Con X-Cavator

The easy-to-operate X-Cavator from Vac-Con comes with a hydrostatic drive that uses the chassis engine to eliminate the need for PTO, clutch and gearbox operation. It offers water systems up to 4,000 psi and a mobile wireless remote control enabling the operator to work the chassis engine rpm, boom, automatic vacuum breaker, dump controls and hydraulic door locks from remote areas up to a half mile away. The boom rotates up to 270 degrees. 855/336-2962; www.vac-con.com.
