HammerHead Trenchless launches remote-controlled 22-ton winch at ICUEE

HammerHead Trenchless, a Charles Machine Works company, introduced its new 22-ton, radio remote-controlled HydroGuide® HG2200 cable winch at the 2017 International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) in Louisville, Kentucky. The HG2200 completes the HammerHead line of next-generation winches designed for maximum efficiency and ease-of-use in pipe-bursting, slip-lining and pipe-slitting applications.

"Our 20-ton winch had proven to be a top performer in the field," said Josh Hood, HammerHead Product Manager. "We knew how much operators appreciated the efficiency-enhancing improvements recently made to the other HydroGuide models so our goal was to incorporate those features into the 20-ton model, as well as develop new features to further productivity. The result was our new 22-ton unit, unlike any other cable winch on the market."

Radio remote-control enhances ease-of-use and productivity. It provides operators maximum visibility when positioning the winch by freeing them from a position at the controls on the back of the unit. Operators simply launch the unit's patented 23-foot hydraulic boom with the touch of a button and can fine-tune its depth to 20 feet. The boom is adjustable along all three axes for exact positioning. The HG2200 is now the largest tonnage unit equipped with the unique, self-deploying boom, exclusive to HammerHead Trenchless.

Line speed and pressure for the unit's 2,500 feet of cable are both infinitely adjustable within their parameters. At pressures providing 0.5 to 22 tons, payout speed can be set anywhere from 0 to 100 feet per minute and pulling speed from 0 to 60 feet per minute.

The unit is available in wheeled or tracked configurations and is powered by a fuel-efficient, 24.8 hp Tier 4-compliant Kubota® radial piston engine. The HG2200 comes standard with hydraulic levelling jacks making set up more efficient by allowing the operator to adjust the grade of the machine via the wireless remote control.

The HydroGuide HG2200 shares much in common with the HG1200 released last year. The HG2200 is the final model to undergo a redesign making the full line of HydroGuide winches the most advanced and user-friendly in the industry.

All HydroGuide models utilize a similar control platform. Standardization across the line of winches means users familiar with one can easily operate and service the other. Commonality of parts also lessens inventory requirements, assuring high part availability. Large panel doors on both sides with under-hood lighting make servicing the unit quick and easy.

An optional Electrical Strike Identification system (ESID) adds extra safety when working near underground electrical utilities.

Large underground projects benefit from subsurface utility engineering

The vast number of utilities under cities can be a challenge for large projects. Using locating tools can help work through the tangle of services already in place.

Large underground projects such as rapid transit tunnels are today being built through highly congested areas, both above and below ground. One of the most complex challenges involves accurately locating existing utilities during the design phase and discerning whether the utility can be accommodated or if it must be relocated.
