Spring Tradeshows

Tuesday, March 06, 2018
It's been a busy start to the year with exhibitions in New Orleans (UCT) and Indianapolis (WWETT) where we doubled our normal booth size and showed multiple Shooters with various accessories.  One of the new products offered this year is a basic Shooter for those who want something similar to the original model but with a lower cost than the flagship self-lubricating and ruggedly mobile hand truck.  The basic Shooter uses the same body but with a simple top funnel (no knife gate, no oiler system) and sits on a simple A-Frame.  It is easily portable with two people and still puts liner in the ground like Shooters have been reliably doing since the 1990's. Like all Shooters, it's solidly built to last for years of commercial use and retails for less than $20,000.

If you didn't get a chance to see us at WWETT or UCT, we'll be exhibiting in Palm Springs at No Dig the third week of March.  We'll again have multiple Shooters where you can get some hands on time and see for yourself why so many are fans of the simple and effective, stoutly built, user-friendly Shooter.  And we're still hearing how much operators love our lubrication system with overspray guard that keeps them dry during installation, and the knife gate for after the tail passes.  The new hand truck model is sure a fan favorite.  And for those of you who have been in the business a long time and know Steve, our founder and inventor of THE SHOOTER, the first continuous air-inversion machine for cipp, we're happy to have Steve along with us at No Dig!  Stop by the booth #563 and say hello.  We'd love to see you and thank you personally for your business or new interest!

THE SHOOTER with Water Inversion

Thursday, February 08, 2018
THE SHOOTER is mostly known for reliable and fast air-inversion with steam cure for quick, efficient pipe relining, but what if you're in a tight easement with difficult access on a job requiring a water installation?  Perhaps there's not room for that water tower truck but you do have THE SHOOTER and the optional water cure flange.  By using air to invert the liner down the MH and just into the host pipe, you can then add water for an air/water installation.  Continuing with both air and water, the liner will fill and remain inflated as the inversion continues.  The lay flat is pulled in by the tail during the second half of the shot as with any water install. With the liner inverted and the head pressure sufficient to prevent deflation, remove the top funnel and replace it with the water cure flange (see photo).  By using the 4" port on the water flange and one on the back of THE SHOOTER, hot water can be recirculated and the liner cured as normal.  The photo shows the curing set up using an original style Shooter.

The new ruggedly mobile hand truck with built-in lubrication system and knife gate allows THE SHOOTER  to easily get to manholes with difficult access, and the optional water cure flange makes THE SHOOTER an even more versatile asset for underground construction companies.  Give us a call at (541) 504-0416, x-6 or stop by our show booth to see THE SHOOTER and accessories in person.  We'll be at the WWETT Show booth #6430 in Indianopolis, Feb. 22-24 and the No Dig Show in Palm Springs booth #563 Mar. 26-28.  Stop by, we'd love to see you!

UCT 2018 New Orleans

Monday, January 08, 2018

Happy New Year!  2018 is shaping up to be a busy year following a very good 2017.  Thank you Shooter fans for all your faithful business and great conversations!  We're looking forward to the spring trade show season beginning with UCT in New Orleans in just a few weeks.  Once again we'll be exhibiting THE SHOOTER 12 with built-in lubrication system and knife gate on the very mobile hand truck, perfect for tight easements and off pavement situations. We'll also have information on the larger trailer-mounted 24.  Will you be in New Orleans for the show?  Please stop by booth #625.  We'd love to meet you and discuss how THE SHOOTER can simplify and speed up your cipp work.  Thanks for your interest!  See you at the show!

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

Wednesday, March 01, 2017


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!
