Economical, Green Trenchless Tool

The Grundomat pneumatic piercing tool from TT Technologies is an economical, versatile and environmentally friendly tool. The Grundomat uses less air than other pneumatic piercing tools to provide a powerful, accurate bore. High air efficiency means smaller, more fuel-efficient air compressors can be used to power the tool. Also, the trenchless nature of the tool is less disruptive and costly than open cut methods.

In addition, the tool has minimal impact on the environment as it utilizes natural biodegradable lubricants. The Grundomat serves as a complement and, in many cases, an economical alternative to larger, more expensive directional drilling equipment.

The Grundomat is ideal for electrical contractors and FTTH installations. Seventeen models, from 1 ¾” to 7” in diameter, are available for horizontal boring distances from 50’ to 150’.
