Manhole Machine

Ever wonder how they make those giant manholes? Well, it’s probably with the HS-57 Manhole Saw II from Coneqtec-Universal. This heavy-duty skid-steer attachment that removes the collar and surrounding area of concrete and asphalt encasing manhole covers. It includes heavy-duty hydraulic motors, a hydraulic-powered breakout feature, and 45 carbide-tipped picks to cut through concrete, asphalt and brick at blistering speeds. A self-aligning hydraulic clamp securely attaches to the collar. It provides a 57-inch-diameter hole cut, and lifts the collar and surrounding layers of concrete/asphalt when the cut is finished.
