PIPE & POLE HANDLER

Designed for telehandlers or excavators, Rotobec's Pipe & Pole Handler allows you to position, remove and stack support posts used in the construction of bridges and highways.

Pipe & Pole Handler

Due to their shape, our Pole and Pipe Handler can pick up a pole or pipe off the ground, place it in a vertical position, and firmly hold it in place while it is being attached.

Used in building bridges to place, remove and restack pipes used in bridge falsework, quickly and safely. The 2209ROD Pipe Handler opens to accept up to 22" pipe diameter and closes to 9" diameter, and the 3212ROD Pipe Handler has a 32" - 12" range. It can be mounted on excavator and high reach telescopic lift truck (telehandler).

LUGGING

1LUGGING

  • The Pipe Handler is delivered ready to accept the existing lugging. The carrier tool cylinder is used to control the pitch of the grapple for careful control of the pipe during placement and removal.

ROTATES

  • The grapple rotates 110° to move pipe from horizontal to vertical position for placement of the pipe. Lock valve on the rotate cylinder prevents grapple rotation from drifting or rotating accidentally in the event of hydraulic pressure failure.

ELECTRICAL SOLENOID
