Our latest innovation, LEO, is a game-changer for anyone involved in pulling ropes through pipes or gutters. Designed for versatility and efficiency, LEO is the ultimate tool for navigating pipes and gutters, making it an indispensable asset for a wide range of applications.

What is LEO?

LEO is a sophisticated system engineered specifically to pull ropes through pipes or gutters with remarkable ease. Equipped with counter-rotating Mechanum wheels, LEO grips the pipe walls to generate forward thrust, efficiently pulling a rope through the desired pathway. It's important to note that LEO is designed to pull a rope, which can then be used to pull through other equipment or cables.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Advanced Mechanum Wheels: LEO’s unique wheel design allows it to move effortlessly along pipe walls, ensuring steady and reliable traction.

  • Versatile Applications: Whether installing ropes in empty conduits, inspecting pipelines, pulling a pig through a pipeline, or cleaning gutters, LEO is up to the task.

  • Efficient Operation: Designed for quick deployment and operation, LEO reduces the time and effort required for rope installation, enhancing productivity.

  • Durability: Built to withstand harsh conditions, LEO ensures long-lasting performance, making it a valuable investment for any project.

Applications of LEO

  1. Rope Installation in Empty Conduits: LEO simplifies the process of pulling ropes through empty conduits, providing a smooth and efficient way to prepare for cable installation.

  2. Pipeline Inspection: LEO can navigate through pipelines, providing a reliable means of post-installation inspection and maintenance.

  3. Pigging Operations: Use LEO to pull a pig through a pipeline, ensuring the internal cleaning and inspection of the pipe.

  4. Gutter Cleaning: LEO’s design makes it ideal for cleaning gutters, pulling cleaning tools through to remove debris and maintain flow.

  5. General Rope Pulling: Wherever a rope needs to be pulled through a confined space, LEO is the perfect solution.

Future Developments
