TEI Rock Drills, Inc. introduced the advanced HCC-10 hydraulic casing safety handler in Las Vegas at CONEXPO in March. The Montrose, Colo. drilling equipment manufacturer designed the HCC-10 excavator attachment to exceed new safety requirements regarding the handling of drill pipes and casings in field applications. This innovative pipe handler attaches easily and quickly to the arm and auxiliary hydraulics on most eight-ton excavators.

The TEI HCC-10 hydraulic casing safety handler can grasp a length of drill pipe and casing together from a rack and fully position them vertically or horizontally over the drill rig. The drill operator can rely on this unique TEI equipment to accurately position the pipe and casing as the tubular material threads into the drill string. The HCC-10 eliminates the possibility of serious jobsite injury caused by hand-turning the drill string when adding pipe and casing.
