General Machine Products (GMP) Co. Inc. introduces the Ramrod, a trailer-mounted, powered duct rod pusher. The Ramrod offers a mechanized method for working with GMP's 1/2-inch duct rods. It provides an alternative to expensive rodding trucks, which can cause damage to existing cable because of their immense power. The Ramrod is hydraulically powered, providing precise control, and can push and pull forces up to 300 pounds-all while moving at speeds of up to 130 feet per minute.

The Ramrod is trailer-mounted for convenient maneuverability and transportability. It features a gasoline-driven power pack, hoses and a locking waterproof storage box for accessories. The unit accurately measures rod-pushing footage and speed with an electronic monitoring system that works in either direction. The readout can be scaled to feet or meters.

After a conduit has been rodded, the Ramrod retrieves the rod using its bi-directional drive track. As the rod is retrieved, a wiping window located at the front end of the machine allows the rod to be wiped clean prior to storing back on the cassette. A package of rod wiper pads is provided. The complete Ramrod unit weighs 1,400 pounds.
