Construction equipment: Sherman + Reilly, a Textron Inc. company and manufacturer of power line stringing and installation equipment, continues to expand on the successful Duct Dawg series with the launch of the new Duct Dawg Air DDHXA-75/100 underground puller featuring BOSS Air System’s air compressor. Deliveries of the first Duct Dawg Air units are underway and the company continues to see strong demand from the market.

“We are excited to be expanding the Duct Dawg series, launched just last year, focused on simplified underground jobsite setup, technology-driven efficiencies and an optimized compact design with smooth operations,” said Ryan Berg, Director of Product Management. “With the added air compressor, the Duct Dawg Air allows customers to purchase one piece of equipment to tackle multiple underground installation jobs.”

The Duct Dawg Air underground puller is ideally suited for utilities and contractors alike, providing a multi-functional, safe and efficient machine for underground installation. The Duct Dawg Air underground puller is capable of pulling 7,500 or 10,000 pounds, depending on the customer’s needs.

The Duct Dawg Air underground puller features a compact, under 16-foot footprint with a fully articulating, self-supported, 3-axis boom. The durable, wireless remote control provides maneuverability and added safety allowing the operator to control the machine from anywhere around the Duct Dawg Air underground puller. The hydraulically driven, twin capstan bullwheels and new 3-speed gearbox provides for a smooth operation. The new CANbus technology provides accurate, real-time display readouts of the machine system status including stringing data and digital line tensions.
