The Thrust Boring Machine TERRA-MINI JET MJ 1600 PB pushes steel pipes up to OD 170 mm (7“) in lengths up to 25 m (80 ft) through the ground. This is done with a thrust force of 60 kN (6 tons, 7 US tons, 13’200 lbs).
The front plate of the MJ 1600 PB can be interlocked hydraulically. This gives the TERRA-MINI JET MJ 1600 PB a high stability in the working pit.
Normally steel pipes OD 114 mm (4.5”) are used. Larger steel pipe diameters up to OD 170 mm (6.7”) are possible. The augers can be easily disassembled with the release lever.
The thrust boring machine TERRA-MINI JET MJ 1600 PB can be modified as a directional HDD machine.
