Pipe Bursting Equipment Sales


TTS Chain Drive Pipe Bursting


All Chain Drive pipebursting equipment features smooth, quiet hydraulic power. Chain Drive pullers are integrally mounted into certified trench boxes as standard, or may be supplied separately to order. Chain is available in a wide range of sizes and specifications to meet all project requirements.

  • Steady non-shock hydraulic power eliminates impact and hazards to adjacent utilities and surrounding structures.
  • Integral trench boxes enhance safety and minimize the need for special thrust bracing and shoring to absorb puller forces, a major advantage when pits are in poor ground.
  • Equipment is available in 80, 100, 200 and 300 ton pulling capacities, plus 25 tons for sewer lateral replacement, or may be built to order.
  • Optional chain clamp available.



All pullers feature simple, rugged, job-site proven design. TTS 100 and 200 include integral trench boxes. For easier handling TTS-300 is supplied with a separate box matched to the puller in the pit at site. All boxes are certified. All units include hydraulic power packs, which may be conveniently driven from a tractor-loader or similar small equipment.
