Horizontal Directional Drilling - LaValley Industries TONGHAND

The TONGHAND exit-side wrench attachment from LaValley Industries provides horizontal directional drillers with a safe, efficient way to torque up and break pipe joints, reamers and subs. The hydraulic attachment’s rotation arms, gull wing design and integral TongVise are controlled by a single operator inside a 30-ton excavator. An in-cab display allows the operator to monitor and adjust all functions, including the specified torque value. It works with pipe tool joints ranging in size from 6.5 to 10 inches. The rotation arms allow the operator to thread and unthread drill pipe connections with precision. At the same time, the gull wing design makes it easy for the operator to move the arms out of the way to make and break reamers. The 120,000 ft-lb torque capability on its vise, and the precision pipe control design, allow workers to remain safely away from drilling components. 218/444-3030; www.lavalleyindustries.com.
