The Kobus Puller is designed with a small footprint. The tapered design on the foot section allows better clearance from surrounding utilities. The Puller is positioned easily in small excavations, even with very congested utilities, and doesn’t require a large clear flat area at the base of the excavation.
Kobus supplies a specially designed pulling cable which comes complete with integral ferrule and expander. The ferrule allows attachment to the new pipe so it can be towed in behind the old pipe. The expander opens up the bore hole behind the old pipe. The cable is ready to use without the need for any fiddly assembly on site.
The Kobus Puller extracts the old pipe continuously providing smooth extraction of the pipe without stopping and starting. This ensures the pulling is quick without the need for manual operation of any device. There’s no need to cut the tough old metal pipe with shears that may need regular replacement.
The 3600 rotatable foot section allows the excavator to be positioned anywhere on the side of the pit to give optimum access. The rotation of the foot in any direction enables the Puller to be quickly positioned and adjusted without repositioning the excavator for optimum efficiency in operation.
