Each system comes with a standard tooling package that includes pin-joint tooling which makes connecting new pipe to the rod easy and allows a smaller launch pit. Optional 1 3/8-in. rods fit through pipe with inside diameters as small as 2 in. or larger. All rods are designed so that they can be forced through heavily incrusted, damaged, or collapsed lines.
Standard packages are designed to handle fractureable materials. Special splitting heads are available that allow the HB5058 to handle ductile iron and steel.
