Static Pull

Static pull systems for pipe bursting do not include the use of pneumatic hammers to effect the bursting process. The bursting is accomplished using the splitting force created by the pulling of the slanted bursting into the existing pipe. Cables or quick connect rod systems are used to provide the tensile pull. Splitting may be aided by the use of fins on the face of the bursting head to create stress concentrations in the existing pipe.
