The Leader in Trenchless Pipe Bursting Equipment and Accessories

Here at TRIC Tools, we understand exactly how important equipment is to pipeline and sewer system technicians. For a job that would normally take 40 minutes or so to complete, it can take hours if the equipment is worn, outdated, or broken. TRIC Tools carries state-of-the-art equipment designed to help you complete each job and move on as efficiently as possible. The craftsmanship in this family extends three generations and we have consistently produced powerful and durable equipment at reasonable prices.

A Range of Top Quality Products

Bursting pipes without the right equipment can result in hard, messy work that is not satisfactory for home and business owners. Fortunately, we carry trenchless pipe bursting equipment and accessories.

We also have state-of-the-art pulling units to assist you as well. A quick job can easily turn into a few hours without the proper equipment. The X30 is the ideal package when bursting pipes up to 6-inches in diameter. TRIC has our own line of hydraulic pumps for pipe bursting equipment designed to be very simple and efficient.

Bursting heads are essential in the plumbing business and if any are broken it's very problematic. Pipe fusion equipment is for fusing bursting heads to the pipe for easy manipulation. TRIC offers three different designs for any sized job and ensures great durability.

Lastly, we design accessories as well that prove to be vital to the task at hand. These trenchless technologies accessories include but are not limited to, 10K Gauges, duct rodder, 3/4″ compact swaged cable, and many more.
