HammerHead HydroBurst HB125 from the Earth ToolThe HammerHead HydroBurst HB125 from the Earth Tool Co. is a “high-tonnage” pipe-bursting system designed for use in the water- and sewer-pipe replacement market. The HB125 is based on the Vermeer Navigator HDD platform and generates 250,000 pounds of pulling force. The HydroBurst HB125, says the manufacturer, is capable of replacing pipes from 4 to 20 inches in diameter and features a rotating rod string that is designed to penetrate collapsed lines. The HB125 can replace pipes that can be fractured, as well as pipes such as ductile iron, steel and PVC that are opened with the tool’s “ductile slitter.”
