Down Hole Units

Lateral pipe bursting with the PortaBurst system


The down hole unit is typically set up at the house, in the basement or at the clean out. It is connected to a hydraulic power source. The burst head is pulled through the existing pipe, bursting it and pulling in the new pipe simultaneously.


HammerHead offers 2 different models of PortaBurst down hole units: the PB30 Gen 2 and Lightning. What’s the difference? While both have up to 30 tons of pulling force, the Lightning is designed to be lightweight for jobs where access is limited. The PB30 Gen 2 is a popular choice due to its proven durability and performance. Contact us to help determine which model is right for you!
