Sica SpA has introduced a new range of haul-offs and cutting machines for extra-large, extra-thick high density polyethylene pipe, used to transport pressurized fluids.

The new TRK/C Plus series saws can cut thicker pipe without producing chips or scraps.

The multi-caterpillar haul-offs in the P1600/12 Plus and P2000/14 Plus series offer high maximum pulling power (of 28 tons and 40 tons, respectively) and cut energy consumption through the use of high-performance, low-maintenance mechanical transmissions. The TRK/C 1600 Plus can cut pipes with wall thicknesses up to 5.6 inches. The TRK/C 2000 Plus can cut pipe with wall thicknesses to 6.4 –inches.

All the rubber pads are made from special materials that combine anti-wear properties with high contact friction for a good grip.

Standard equipment also includes strong, electrically operated pipe supports on both the infeed and outfeed from the haul-offs, for safe operation with the big, heavy pipe.

Sica is based in Alfonsine, Italy.
