New cable winch from HammerHead Trenchless lets operators precisely match payout and pullback to the task
The HydroGuide HG550 high-performance cable winch from HammerHead Trenchless enables operators to precisely match tonnage and speed to a job's specific requirements. The winch is ideal for slitting plastic gas pipes and pulling back new product in lines ranging from 1/2 inch to 2 inches in diameter.
The HG550 provides infinite, proportional control of up to 5.5 tons of pulling force at payout/pullback speeds ranging from 3 inches to 110 feet per minute. This means operators not only can use a HG550 to precisely match payout and pullback to the task, but they also have a top-rate capability to complete runs up to 20 percent faster than with competing winches.
The HG550 also features a data tracking system to record performance information. Documentation can be used to meet reporting requirements, to support operator training programs, or for internal project tracking, assessment and more. The easy-to-read, Precision Digital Job Data Recorder keeps track of line speed, distance, force and pressure. A USB flash drive makes it easy to store and download data.
