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.
