HammerHead Trenchless

HammerHead Trenchless, a Charles Machine Works company, introduced its new 22-ton, radio remote-controlled HydroGuide HG2200 cable winch, designed for maximum efficiency in pipebursting, sliplining and pipeslitting applications.

Radio remote-control enhances ease-of-use and productivity. It provides operators maximum visibility when positioning the winch by freeing them from a position at the controls on the back of the unit. Operators simply launch the unit’s patented 23-foot hydraulic boom with the touch of a button, and can fine-tune its depth to 20 feet. The boom is adjustable along all three axes for exact positioning. HG2200 is now the largest tonnage unit equipped with the unique, self-deploying boom, exclusive to HammerHead Trenchless.

Line speed and pressure for the unit’s 2,500 feet of cable are infinitely adjustable within their parameters. At pressures providing 0.5 to 22 tons, payout speed can be set anywhere from 0 to 100 feet per minute, and pulling speed from 0 to 60 feet per minute.

The unit is available in wheeled or tracked configurations and is powered by a fuel-efficient, 24.8 horsepower, Tier 4-compliant Kubota radial piston engine. The HG2200 comes standard with hydraulic levelling jacks, making setup more efficient by allowing the operator to adjust the grade of the machine via the wireless remote control.

The HydroGuide HG2200 shares much in common with the HG1200 released last year. The HG2200 is the final model to undergo a redesign, completing this full line of HydroGuide winches as the most-advanced and user-friendly in the industry.
