There are two categories of Kobus Pipe Pullers.  The first, and the original, Puller is the KPP300.  This machine is modular for ease of handling and is driven from its own, separate hydraulic power pack.  The second Puller is the KPP400.  This is the big brother of Pullers that mounts on an excavator and is powered by the auxiliary hydraulics of the excavator. Both Pipe Pullers must be used in conjunction with Kobus recommended Accessories and Consumables.
