Product description

Pneumatic device (with reverse mode) designed for horizontal piercing and pipe ramming

Operations range

  • Drilling of 160mm diameter holes
  • Drilling of 273mm diameter holes with use of expanders
  • Ramming of Ø159mm steel pipes directly
  • Ramming of up to Ø406mm steel pipes with use of cones


Additional informations

HP160L is a universal device allowing plastic pipe installation and steel pipes ramming. Range of operation is wide thanks to ability to work with expanders and high effectivness of pipe ramming.

HP160L combines highest in its class power (comparing weight and diameter of the tool) with high accuracy.

HP160L users also highlight high efficency of piercing in wet soil.

Loop cable installed at the rear of the mole allows direct pipe installation with the use of steel rope and tension plate.

Reverse mode is applied by pulling air supply hose or by changing position of the handle built into pneumatical steering-lubricating station ("P" versions).

Purchasing of this mole is suggested for example workload: 50% plastic pipes instalation in the range Ø125mm-250mm and no more than 50% of steel pipes ramming Ø159-325

If there isn't any PE pipes smaller than Ø160mm better option would be HP160V mole.

There is few types of HP160L
- "P" symbol stands for mole with pneumatic steering (forward-reverse) using valve built into steering-lubricating station

- "V" symbol stands for not demountable expansion at the rear of the mole Ø200mm. It enables piercing holes for Ø160mm pipe installation directly behind the mole.

Main advantages of HP160L are:

  • easy launch in the soil
  • soft start
  • effective and easy work with expanders
  • high accuracy
