No Dig 2017 in DC

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

We're excited to be heading to the Gaylord Resort in Washington, DC for the big NASTT No Dig Show in a couple weeks.  Will you be there too?  With the combination NASTT and ISTT this year's No Dig will have an international flair and is the biggest trenchless event of 2017.  If you haven't yet seen THE SHOOTER in person or if you'd just like to stop by to say hi, we'll be in booth #242.  We'd love to see you!

Thanks for stopping by the booth in Indy

Thanks for coming by THE SHOOTER booth in Indy this past week.  It's people like you that make the trade shows so enjoyable.  We appreciate all the positive feedback from both longtime Shooter users and the growing number of new fans who've made the switch to the best continuous air-inverter available.  Though THE SHOOTER was the first continuous air machine for cipp and is responsible for many miles of relined pipe, a commitment to innovation and improvement led us to the redesign two years ago that made a great inverter even better.  From the ruggedly mobile hand truck with built-in lubrication system complete with overspray guard for dry operators, to the knife gate for more efficient inversion, flat-free tires, perforated bin for wrenches and other tools, high quality nozzles, gauges, regulators, stainless tubing, durable design and fabrication and powder coating, we spared no feature that any of us would want on the best inversion machine around.  Thanks again for all the comments and growing interest.  And if you haven't yet seen the new Shooter, come by the No Dig booth in April (Booth #242).  We'd love to meet you!

Happy Holidays from the staff of Emagineered Solutions

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

As 2016 winds down and all the busyness of relining work slows somewhat while the holiday shopping and seasonal gatherings ramp up, we want to take this moment to say thank you, from all of us at Emagineered Solutions.  We very much appreciate your continued business and friendship, and wish you all the very best. May this holiday season be full of joy and quality time with family and friends, and may the next year be even better than this one!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year!

Covered in Oil?

Thursday, September 15, 2016
One of the more common statements heard from users of our new model of THE SHOOTER® is how well the lubrication system works and how dry it is for the operator.  Some have even told stories of previously having to wear goggles rather than safety glasses but not with THE SHOOTER®.  A very simple and effective guard prevents both overspray from the lubrication nozzles as well as any upward spray from inversion air.  Once the lubrication air and oil pressures are set, the operator can simply concentrate on the liner speed and installation.  The feedback from the new system has been overwhelmingly positive, even called "brilliant!" so if you're tired of mineral oil on you rather than on the liner where it belongs, please give us a call.  THE SHOOTER®, simply the best machine for municipal CIPP and trenchless sewer repair.

We received a call two weeks ago from a contractor looking at moving up from small laterals to larger mainlines and was in need of some equipment.  He said THE SHOOTER® had come very highly recommended and after some conversation with us it turned out he already had a job bid with a very short window for completion.  We were able to help him get a 24" SHOOTER with all the necessary ancillary equipment, as well as provide a day of training at our facility before his rehab work two days later.  After picking up three guys at the airport, we gave them a quick tour of our facility and commenced to introductions and walkthroughs of both THE SHOOTER® 12" (for 6-12" pipe) and THE SHOOTER® 24" (for 15-24" pipe).  We discussed the necessary equipment and safety, proper LIPs seal adjustment, setting up a shot, lubricating and inverting a liner, the cure, and what happens afterward.  Then came the practice shot with a dry liner in the yard using a 12" SHOOTER and some 8" x 6mm, which moved easily under low pressure in a slow, controlled inversion across the lot.  It was a hands on session for them.  After any remaining questions were answered, they were back on a plane and anxious to prep and shoot the run.  We were very happy to hear a report after the holiday weekend that their install went perfectly.  In fact, he said the easiest part of the entire operation was inverting the 15" liner with THE SHOOTER®.  His experience previously has only been with small inversion drums, and the ability to have longer runs in larger pipe with the original continuous air-inversion machine was just what he said he's been looking for, especially with a machine that isn't difficult to understand or operate, and really does well what it's designed to do.  Glad everything came together for him on such a tight schedule!


Fabulously Busy!

Friday, June 17, 2016
What a busy month we've had here at Emagineered Solutions with a furious run of multiple purchases of the new Shooter with lubricating hand truck and knife gate.  THE SHOOTER has been flying out of here two at a time in many cases with one company even buying four in less than a year they like it so much.  One of the quotes I heard from a contractor who did his research by checking with current users of the new Shooter for their opinion, said he was told that once they bought the new Shooter from Emagineered, the very popular inversion machine they'd been using before has been "just collecting dust."  That's the kind of testimony that makes us proud of our product, which we make right here in Redmond, Oregon.  We're a small company that takes care in the design and craftsmanship so when we get a sudden rush of Shooter sales that wipes out our inventory, it takes a month or so to build it back up again.  We're in that process now, so if you're interested in the best inversion machine out there, give us a call, we can get you formal pricing, but it will be a few more weeks before we'll have any units to ship.  That's not a bad problem to have.  Thank you for your business and for the great testimonies about how well THE SHOOTER puts liner in the ground and keeps your business competitive!

The Gaylord Texan No Dig 2016

Friday, March 25, 2016

Thank you for visiting our booth at the beautiful Gaylord Texan Resort, site of the NASTT No Dig 2016.  We appreciate all of the interest in THE SHOOTER and for all the old friends who've been in this industry for so long stopping by to say hi.  Renewing friendships is one of the bonuses of industry trade shows like this one.  Again, we thank you.

THE SHOOTER always attracts attention, even from those just passing by and who don't have much experience in the relining business.  "I'm not sure what it does, but I just like the looks of it," I've heard repeatedly at various shows.  And yes, it's a good looking machine but that's not what actually sells the contractor needing a solid machine for his trenchless work.  It has to have form and function.  And that's precisely what THE SHOOTER does; it simply and efficiently puts pipe liner in the ground.  It's a simple machine without a lot of moving parts prone to failure and replacement.  It's solidly built for years of hard commercial use.  It's now more ruggedly mobile and has user friendly functions like onboard automatic lubrication and a knife gate to prevent air loss at the halfway point of the install.  It's well thought out.  These are observations from both the passer by and the seasoned SHOOTER user.

If you have a need for the best machine for sewer rehabilitation with two models to choose from for pipe 6" to 24", give us a call today.  We'd love to talk with you about how THE SHOOTER can help your trenchless contracting business be more efficient and more profitable.
