Whether you’re pipe bursting, pipe slitting, slip lining or cable pulling, the materials you work with vary. The length and lay of runs vary from job to job. Customer requirements differ. That’s why the HG550 HydroGuide Winch from HammerHead Trenchless can be a quality investment.

The dual capstan design winch has the capacity of utilizing multiple sizes of wire cable. It provides infinite proportional control of up to 5.5 tons of pulling force with line payout and faster pullback speeds than previous models.

“Now you can match any job’s unique requirements,” says a company spokesperson. “And while any operator can say they did the job well, the HydroGuide HG550 erases any doubt.”

The winch is ideal for use in lines ranging from 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. According to HammerHead, its high-tech features and options protect profit margins through increased operational efficiency and help operators satisfy their customers even on the most demanding jobs.

The HG550 provides infinite, proportional control of pulling force at payout/pullback speeds ranging from 3 inches to 110 feet per minute. This means operators not only can use it to precisely match payout and pullback to the task, they also have a top-rate capability to complete runs up to 20% faster than previous winch models.

In addition, the HG550 features a data tracking system to record performance information. Documentation can be used to meet reporting requirements, to support operator training programs, or for internal project tracking and assessment. The easy-to-read Precision Digital Job Data Recorder keeps track of line speed, distance, force and pressure. A USB flash drive makes it easy to store and download data. Use of the optional printer provides hardcopy right on site.

“The unit’s data tracking system records performance information you can use for your own documentation, for training, or for your project reports,” says the spokesperson. “With the HG550, the data speaks for itself.”

If your jobs have you working near electrical utilities, according to HammerHead, the company is the only winch manufacturer to offer an optional Electrical Strike Indicator Device for added safety, helping operators stay aware of what’s going on in and around the drill and job site. 800-331-6653;
