Sliding apart into two components with the pull of two pins, the R2 is the lightest lateral bursting system on the market. Easily set up on site by hand and producing 30 tons of pulling force at 2,800 psi, this machine can be hydraulically powered from any mini excavator, Bobcat or a Hydraulic power pack.
Our patented crib back feature allows you to re-stage the pulling ram once the bursting is done and pull up to a 4″ head with new pipe into the chassis. This eliminates the need for a crib box or timbers to extract the head into the pit. When dealing with soft soils, the included resistance plate can aid in spreading out the load across the face of the chassis.
