Series 500 Heavy Duty Coring Truck

The Series 500 coring truck from Utilicor Technologies is the most robust coring truck available on the market today. Used by dozens gas utilities and their contractors for over a decade, the Series 500 allows its users to quickly cut keyholes through roadways and sidewalks at a rate of 1″ per minute due to its 5000 P.S.I. of isolated down force focused on the coring drum and center pilot bit assembly.

Two, truck mounted, independently operated hydraulic stabilizers allow for the entire suspension of the truck to be isolated from the coring process, allowing for quick and accurate core cuts.

This is the only heavy duty keyhole specific coring truck produced for the industry and it will perform year after year beyond all expectations.
