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.
