What’s New

Inline Services

Inline Services’ Pit Cleaning Pig® is built for heavy-duty cleaning. The steel body is encompassed by steel wire pencil brushes and polyurethane discs that scrape along the pipeline and make for an aggressive circumferential cleaning. This mandrel bodied pig is very efficient for rust, black powder and mill scale removal. www.inlineservices.com

B&B Pipe and Industrial Services

The new B&B 6K Mega Roller from B&B Pipe and Industrial Tools is an increased capacity pipe roller designed for heavy-duty jobsite use. The oversized 6 6X3 inch wheels are a urethane over steel design offering numerous advantages. They allow ultra-smooth pipe rotation via heavy-duty sealed bearings and urethane coating allows carbon pipe rotation as well as contamination free exotic pipe rotation. The unique head design also allows the removal of the wheels, transforming to a V head stand restricting pipe rotation.  www.bbpipetools.com


McElroy’s new fusion machine, the MegaMc® 1648 Series 2, is mounted on a wheeled chassis and is removable for in-ditch or close quarters work. The carriage can convert from 4 to 3 jaws as needed and interchanges easily with its tracked counterpart to create a self-propelled, all-terrain, track-mounted fusion machine. “The MegaMc 1648  is designed to give contractors the flexibility they need on any jobsite where large-diameter pipe (16-OD to 48-inch OD) is being fused. An electric-powered hydraulic system gives the Series 2 twice the amount of force capability to assist in all fusion functions, including the complete operation of the jaws, pipe lifts, heater and facer. The Series 2 allows for the butt fusion of most fittings without special holders or the removal of the outer jaw. Mitered inserts are available for fabricating ells.www.mcelroy.com

Ditch Witch®

Three new turbocharged utility tractors are offered from Ditch Witch®, a Charles Machine Works Company. The new models – RT105, RT125 and the RT125 Quad tractor – feature innovative control consoles and operator stations. Easy-to-read gauges and 120-degree seat rotation provide project visibility while dial controls for ground and attachment operations provide the option to adjust power to each system, maximizing machine productivity. The redesigned workstations are equipped with advanced, 5-inch, color LCD engine displays that rotate with the operator, providing direct visibility into all machine functions, including engine performance. All three are powered by 107-hp and 121-hp turbocharged, Tier 4 DEUTZ® engines, respectively. www.ditchwitch.com/trenchers#content-352
