Guide to Selection of TerraMacs Thrusters (Rod Pushers)
Note - The following table is offered as a comparative guide only and a means to readily identify the most likely Thruster to suit your needs. TerraMacs accepts no liability whatsoever where machines fail to perform to stated levels, as ground conditions, operator techniques, fluids, tooling and machine speeds are all highly variable and contribute to the effectivity and productivity of the thrusting operation. It may be possible to thrust larger diameters over shorter lengths or smaller diameters over longer lengths. We strongly recommend that you discuss your requirements with your distributor or contact TerraMacs before making a final machine selection.
