Transport and Storage Cradle
The KPP400 transportation and storage cradle is ideal for transporting and storing the Kobus Pipe Puller safely and all-in-one. In use, the Puller is mounted on a 2.5 – 3 tonne excavator, and has to be transported to and from site. When not in use, the Puller needs to be safely stored, ideally together with the consumables and accessories / tools to ensure everything is to hand ready for the next job.
During attachment of the Puller to an excavator, whether via a quick-hitch, or directly onto pins, operator safety is paramount. It is always recommended that operators are not required to be on the flat bed of the van / truck, trailer, or similar transport vehicle when assisting with the attachment, loading and unloading of the Puller.
