A 1984, General, six wheel drive, retired Military Tractor from Carson Corporation’s fleet made short work of mud, ice and access road elevation in Liberty Township, Pennsylvania this winter. The Hillis Group, working for UGI, contracted with Carson Corporation to horizontally directional drill 1,600 lf of 8” gas pipe. Carson PM, Cameron Segura skipped a ream pass with a 12” Tri-Cone rock bit and pulled pipe in quick fashion. Proper equipment and resources enabled Carson’s crew to complete another project on time and on budget.
