McElroy recently introduced the industry’s newest pipe handling system… The PolyHorse. This system consists of a series of adjustable racks to store and help install the pipe on the jobsite. It was designed for use with PE pipe sizes 3″ through 20″. It can reduce manpower expense and provide a well-organized staging area for handling pipe bundles. Through actual job site studies, the PolyHorse has achieved 150% productivity improvements over conventional methods.
PE pipe is off-loaded from the delivery truck directly onto the PolyHorse. Pipe is stored off the ground and out of the way until needed. In use, the operator rolls the pipe down the rack and onto the integral pipe rollers where it is easily loaded into a McElroy fusion machine. This eliminates the costs for operating a backhoe or other lifting device along with the associated manpower.
With its modular design it is easy to set up and can be expanded to fit the pipe needs for the jobsite. For more information or to find a distributor, visit www.mcelroy.com.
