Large MACAW Pipe Cracker

Large MACAW Pipe Cracker

Details

The MACAW, suitable for cracking 8” to 24” cast iron mains attaches to the quick-hitch or bucket pins of a mini excavator.

Designed for use with a typical 1.5 to 3 tonne mini excavator, the entire operation is controlled from the cab, using the excavator’s hydraulic power, the operative manoeuvres the arms around the pipe and then applies sufficient pressure to crack the pipe.

Differently sized arms can be attached to the base unit to accommodate varying sizes of pipe.
