Pipe bursting system
Roddie Inc. builds the lightest pipe bursting system on the market. This machine breaks down into two major components at 50 and 60 pounds each that are easily assembled by hand in the excavated pulling pit. In most cases, the machine is operated by using a 17mm cable at a pulling force up to 30 tons at 2,800 psi.
The hydraulic source is a mini excavator or skid steer loader. This system can also be upgraded to a pulling force of 50 tons simply by increasing the psi up to 4,700 and changing the cable and grippers to 22 mm.
