5 pipes are layed parallel right on target

The problem: 5 PVC pipes AD 110 mm had to be laid underneath a 9 m wide road.
The solution: The TERRA-HAMMER TU 135 S laid the 5 PVC pipes directly 
by underground piercing. The dimensions of the starting and 
aiming pits 1.5 m x 1.5 m.

The TERRA-HAMMER TU 135 S reaches the target pit with the fifth pipe.

The accuracy of the TERRA-HAMMER is the result of the patented combihead KOK. The TERRA-HAMMER may also be delivered with the traceable head KOK-LD.
