Whether you’re slitting gas line or pulling in product, the materials you work with vary. The length and lay of runs vary. Customer requirements vary. The HG550 gives you infinite proportional control of up to 5.5 tons of pulling force with line payout and pullback speeds up to 20 percent faster than competing winches. Now you can match any job’s unique requirements. And while any operator can say they did the job well, the HydroGuide HG550 erases any doubt. The unit’s data tracking system records performance information you can use for your own documentation, for training, or for your project reports. With the HG550, the data speaks for itself. And if your jobs have you working near electrical utilities, HammerHead Trenchless is the only winch manufacturer to offer an optional Electrical Strike Indicator Device (ESID) for added safety.
The HG550 winch gives you infinitely variable control over 5.5 maximum tons of force and payout/pullback speeds from 3 inches to 110 feet per minute – ideal for slitting plastic gas pipes ½ inch to 2 inches in diameter, pulling back product or cleaning sewer pipe.
The easy-to-read Precision Digital Job Data Recorder keeps track of line speed, distance, force and pressure. Plug in a USB flash drive to download data, or plug in the optional printer for hardcopy right on-site.
