The TERRA-EXTRACTOR X 400 is an inovative cable burster (wire burster) which replaces old pipes from 1 1/2“ (ID 40 mm) up to 10“ (ID 250 mm). Lengths up to 150 m are possible. Old pipe from cast iron, steel, clayware or PE/PVC can be replaced. New HDPE pipes with outer diameters of 63 – 250 mm are pulled in. The TERRA-EXTRACTOR X 400 is operated via an electric remote control. No operator has to be in the pit or in the manhole during operation. An integrated electric control box changes the direction of the hydraulic cylinder.
The TERRA-EXTRACTOR X 400 may be used in pits or “manhole-to-manhole”. If space is very limited, the TERRA-EXTRACTOR X 400 may be equipped with an optional special button frame. Then it can be used in pits which are only 1 m long and 1 m wide.
