Pushing or pulling new PE pipe into a host pipe using winches, slings on a backhoe bucket or plain brute strength is slow, labor intensive, potentially dangerous and risks damaging the PE pipe.

PLCS’s Pipe Handler easily grips and maneuvers the PE into the host pipe seamlessly, without damage. The unit attaches to the end of an excavator arm and the entire operation is controlled from the cab. Inserting up to 33 feet of pipe per minute with lengths of 1,600 feet or more is now possible.

Since 1980 PLCS, LLC. has supplied the North and South American natural gas distribution industry with systems for sealing gas leaks, lightweight gas-free tapping machines, equipment for installing PE pipes and many other invaluable products.
