Why Reed

Reed’s Tapping Machine is a better value than the competition and is made in the USA. TM1100 ships with all necessary parts, including the corp insertion tools. Plus, by ordering the saddles and drill taps separately, one only needs to purchase the right sizes for the job. Additionally, the Tapping Machine can be converted to a drilling machine for up to 2” saddle taps, thus saving money over the purchase of a separate machine.

Reed's Direct Tapping Machine is used to drill and tap water mains while under pressure, then to install 3/4'' or 1'' corporation stops in a 2-step operation. It covers a range of 4'' - 48'' cast or ductile iron and C900 PVC with the use of saddles and chain extensions (saddles sold separate). The TM1100 tapping machine features a flip clamp feed system. Anodized and epoxy-painted aluminum frames provide a lightweight yet sturdy machine for tough in-ditch applications. The swing valve allows easy change-out from drill tap to corporation insertion tool without main shutdown. Tapping machine uses Reed DT and DTP series drill taps.
