X20 System

The X20 is the smallest and lightest of the new super-reliable X-Series pullers. Distinguished by a sleek, monolithic aluminum body first released by TRIC more than a decade ago, the revised X-Series machines feature a steel pulling bridge for extra strength and reliability. Designed primarily to replace 4-inch sewer laterals, the X20 weighs less than 60 pounds!

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Pulling force:20 tons @ 9,600 psi
  • Piston area:4.15 square inches
  • Hydraulic flow rate:6 GPM and under
  • Cable size:Maximum ¾” (19mm) swaged
  • Puller weight:60 pounds
  • 10” pulley base:90 pounds

X30 System

With formidable power in a super-sleek package, the X30 is your tool of choice to burst sewer and drain pipes up to 6” in diameter. Accessory kits are available for other residential utilities as well. The X-Series pullers are the new standard for rugged reliability in home lateral pipebursting. Designed for minimum maintenance and maximum performance!

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Pulling force: 29.5 tons @ 6,000 psi
  • Piston area: 9.82 square inches
  • Hydraulic flow rate: Maximum 8 GPM
  • Cable size: Maximum ¾” swaged
  • Puller weight: 85 pounds
  • 10” pulley base: 80 pounds

M50 System

Contractors on municipal jobs don’t have any time to waste. The TRIC M50 is the perfect combination of size and power for those easements and other tight spots where bigger equipment just won’t fit. Strong enough to burst 8-inch main lines, yet compact enough to set up by hand. Use either a backhoe* or our dedicated high-flow hydraulic pump to operate.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Pulling force: 48 tons @ 5,000 psi
  • Piston area: 19.24 square inches
  • Hydraulic flow rate: 5 to 20 GPM
  • Cable sizes:  5/8″ (17mm), 3/4″ (19mm), 7/8” (22mm) swaged

M100 System

The TRIC formula puts big power in a small footprint, and the M100 is the most formidable example of that formula. Projects with tough ground conditions or limited access are natural candidates for the M100. This unit is designed to burst 8” to 12” municipal sewers as well as other drains and utility lines.* The M100 can be powered by a back hoe or similar piece of field equipment, ** or by our Hi-Flow series of portable hydraulic pumps.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Pulling force: 98 tons @ 5,000 psi
  • Piston area: 39.27 square inches
  • Hydraulic flow rate: 10 to 30 GPM
  • Cable size: 1” (25mm), 1.125” (28mm), 1.25” (32mm) swaged
  • Puller weight: 380 pounds
  • 10” pulley base: 525 pounds (24” L x 16” W x 27.5” H)
  • 36” x 1.5” steel resistance plate: 500 pounds

V24 System

The V24 is a stripped-down version of the original TRIC system that started the industry of sewer lateral pipe-bursting back in 1997. Simple, fast, and economical, the V24 pulls directly in-line with the pipe, eliminating the pulley wheel found in the standard TRIC configuration. Geared for higher flow and lower pressure, the unit can run as an auxiliary device connected to an excavator or similar piece of hydraulic equipment,* or it can be powered by our new line of dedicated Hi-Flow hydraulic pumps. Standard resistance plate recommended.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Pulling force: 24 tons @ 2,500 psi
  • Piston area: 19.24 square inches
  • Hydraulic flow rate: 5GPM-20GPM
  • Cable size: Maximum ¾” (19mm) swaged
  • Puller weight: 230 pounds assembled

Pumps

Hydraulic Pumps & Accessories

The hydraulic power pack, or pump, is a crucial component of every TRIC pipebursting system. It is the other half of the performance equation. Combined with the puller, the pump determines both power and speed of operation. We have developed a full line of pumps to complement every TRIC pulller, and we’ve greatly improved performance and value with our own series of Hi-Flow power packs.

Technology

TRIC created an entirely new segment of the underground utility industry, namely trenchless home sewer replacement, or lateral pipebursting. This was made possible by the unprecedented combination of a number of elements:

  1. flexible replacement pipe (fusible HDPE)
  2. cable or wire rope
  3. a uniquely adapted cable-pulling device, better known as the TRIC Trenchless System.

This system puts big power in a very small footprint. It is also modular, adjustable, compact, and reliable.

TRIC continues to be a pioneer in the research and development of cable-pulling pipebursting equipment ranging in capacity from 2″ to 30″ diameter replacements.

About Us

TRIC Tools Inc. is a company born of invention. That invention started not only a corporation, but an entire industry that continues to grow to this day. In 1996, when company founder Ward Carter was foreman with an underground construction firm near San Francisco, the term “lateral pipe bursting” was not yet a part of any contractor’s vocabulary. Repair or replacement of a home sewer meant digging it up, in whole or in part, with results that were messy, disruptive, and often incomplete. Then Ward assembled and tested the prototype of what was to become the TRIC lateral pipe bursting system. His father, engineer Robert (Bob) Carter, made drawings and applied the principles of manufacturing that turned the idea into a product. This whole process was not new to the Carters. Bob’s father, Mitchell Carter, invented the Coleman Stove, the Garbage Grinder, and Foam Rubber. Innovation just runs in the family.
