PLCS 2”-6” Coil Pipe Trailer

PLCS Trailer (PDF)

PLCS trailers are only as long as a pick-up truck (less than 17′ x 8′). They are invaluable in tight city streets yet can also lay high volumes of pipe, at high speed, across the country. The coil bay can handle PE and HDPE coils up to 54″ wide x 128″ OD x minimum 42″ ID.

Pipe Re-Rounder-Straightener

Corrects the ovality of large diameter coiled PE pipe. The straightening action eliminates the high level of stored energy from the coil, making the pipe much safer to handle and easier to fuse, even at cold temperatures.

Mechanical "set and forget" operation with no gas engine or hydraulic system to maintain. It requires no power source or special operator and virtually zero maintenance.
