Weighing 3,060 pounds, the HydroBurst HB80 static pipe-bursting system can be towed on a 12,000-pound trailer with a 1-ton truck. The company says the machine is designed for 85 percent of the pipe-bursting market for 3- to 12-inch-diameter pipe. Features include auto rod spinner and 16-second payout per 35-inch rod. It has 148 feet of on-board rod storage to provide a two-hour calculated round-trip 400-foot burst. Because the HB80 uses torqued joint rods, it can utilize Air Impactor pipe-bursting tools.
