Gas Pipe System
Pipeline Tool Lifter
Works Like A Dolly
Powered by a 13-hp Honda air-cooled gasoline engine, the new Dingo TX 413 compact utility loader is equipped with a Toro-patented control system. This feature, combined with a joystick that controls all attachment movement, makes the unit easy-to-operate for both experienced and first-time users, the manufacturer says. The Dingo TX 413 offers a 420-lb lift capacity and 360� visibility. Hydraulic attachments are powered by a three-pump system. This hydraulically driven power system, called Genesis, mounts to the bed of a mechanic service truck close to the bulkhead. It combines a generator, air compressor and welder in one unit. The system is completely self-contained, with a remote control that can be located at the rear of the truck or in a tool compartment for on-ground operation. TracPipe PS-II is an improved version of the makers underground gas piping system. It is designed for a wide variety of gas piping applications, including under building slabs where sleeved and vented piping is required by codes. The lightweight and flexible PS-II is constructed from OmegaFlex standard TracPipe stainless steel flexible gas pipe within a fully vented polyethylene sleeve for safety. The product is supplied in standard lengths on reels or custom lengths. The patented AutoFlare fittings feature a plastic containment coupling and 1�4-in. NPT vent port. A new device for pipeline workers is designed to aid in the lifting and moving of polyethylene pipe in the field. This hand-operated tool, known as the PolyPorter, is used much like a dolly and is intended for pipe up to 8 in. in diameter. The tool has all-steel construction, with a corrosion-resistant coating. It has pneumatic tires for ease of maneuverability over rocky terrain and a roller to allow pipe to traverse easily through the hook-arm.
