I believe Dawn industries makes one also, the name escapes me right now. I can see pulling "class" with that but sch.40? Or in the cold? Needless to say we dont pull.

I've used one much similar to this. I wasn't much of a fan. Like the video says it is quicker than king grips or Chinese finger traps. The problem was I had the polly pull off of this style when pulling long lengths, something that has never happened to me with a king grip or finger trap.

I use a 1' piece of chain looped back on it self.

Sorry but no thanks. It's way to big to pull through the ground.

I might go through pea gravel with it. :hammerhead:

You can't even use a plow the last two months, the ground is concrete, have to trench and it better be a good one or it's going to laugh at you.

Have to wet it first.

I tricked out a old blade with a chisel tooth tip and a water injection tube on the blade . When the ground gets hard we change blades and attach a hose to the back of the blade and away we go . have to go a bit slower than normal but it works .

On our tree spade I saw something similar

That's pretty awsome!!

edit : might as well dump the rest here

My boss wanted me to pull a pipe around a house on a hill pitched about 35'..I just trenched it and was also able to run a drip feed for the hill in the same trench..Stacking pipes Whaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!

I love the 4X10 http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu321/whitehatphishphan/?action=view&current=IMG_0896.mp4

In the ground here was a 1 inch stubb I picked up and a 7 strand wire I jumpped.

The end of about a 200 foot pull.. 2 pipes at once saves so much time..

It's really annoying after I get wet for about 20 mins...

pulling funny pipe is awsome!

This guy might be the best laborer I ever worked with...Picked up putting pipes together, understands basic 24V electronics, a little work around the edges and he could be a great tech...oh by the way he can dig dig dig.

we walked out 1 section of pipe and spray painted it to be able to tell difference...also we use 2 different pipe sizes nsf and non.. Real easy to tell them..

I occasionally get so tired of wet feet that I switch to the rubber/leather Maine Hunting Shoe knockoffs.

between me and you, and this MB @ times I've taken my boots off on a large job where nobody is around and let them roast in the truck for an hour or two..

Thanks for the pics! My dual pipe puller is not in yet, so I pulled funny pipe with a chain(thanks to a suggestion on this thread) and duct taped it around the chain... worked awesome.

I can't wait to get my dual pipe puller, it should be better than a chinese grip which seems to turn into a hand stabber after a while. And I lost a pipe a couple times in rock hard ground.

Here is a pic of my guys pulling pvc for the first time with my sk650.

I had to special order some poly pipe, bc nobody uses it this far south. I think I am going to love poly, pulling pvc kinda sucks trying to tie everything together. Either that or I just don't know what I am doing yet.
