Testimonial

Bill Hanes of VARI-TECH

“The PolyHorse eliminates a large piece of construction equipment and speeds the whole operation. To watch a single worker feed a fifty foot piece of DR 9 into a fusion machine by hand was a thing of beauty.”

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Job site set-up is the key to improved productivity and safety.
  • The improved HDPE pipe handling system not only increases productivity but does it while decreasing project costs.
  • This system is safer and keeps the pipe cleaner with less chance for damage.
  • It also gets projects completed in less time and more efficiently.
