Lines installed accurately every time.

Installation applications include water lines, gas lines, electrical conduit, irrigation pipes etc, and when paired with the R8, 4″ sewer laterals on grade.

The Drill Skid allows the Basement Buddy® to be easily used in a excavated pit. The skid keeps the machine stable in soft soil conditions, making pit launch jobs much easier and safer.
