At TRIC Tools, we've proven ourselves to be an industry-leading manufacturer of pipe pulling equipment. Our history goes back to 1996, when underground construction foreman Ward Carter made the first prototype for a lateral pipe-bursting machine. Initially getting approval for our equipment by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials in 1999, we've since grown our product line substantially.
Although we've made several improvements over the years, the V24 is based off of our original lateral pipe-bursting machine. At 2,500 pounds per square inch, the V24 has a maximum pulling force of 24 tons. Our V24 model can be used in an auxiliary manner or as a primary pipe puller machine using hydraulic pumps. With a puller weight of 230 pounds, this model packs a hydraulic flow rate of up to 20 gallons per minute.
The X30 is our next-strongest trenchless pipe puller. Although its hydraulic flow rate maxes out at 8 gallons per minute, it can pull up to 29.5 tons at 6,000 pounds per square inch.
We recommend using the X30 for removing pipes as wide as 6 inches in diameter. The X30 has a 10-inch pulley base and a 24-inch resistance plate that weigh 80 and 50 pounds, respectively.
We engineered the M50 to be a compact bursting system that doesn't compromise on power. The M50 is perfect for tightly confined spaces that other pipe-bursting equipment won't fit into.
Pulling 48 tons at 5,000 psi, the M50 can be powered with a hydraulic pump or backhoe. Being compact enough to squeeze inside manhole covers, we view the M50 as being perfect for municipal use.
Of all our pipe pullers for sale, this is our highest-powered model. Ideal for 8-inch to 12-inch sewers, the M100 pulls 98 tons at 5,000 pounds per square inch. We recommend using backhoes or our portable hydraulic pumps for powering the M100.
