Tric Tools

TRIC Tools Inc. is a company born of invention. That invention started not only a corporation, but an entire industry that continues to grow to this day. In 1996, when company founder Ward Carter was foreman with an underground construction firm near San Francisco, the term “lateral pipe bursting” was not yet a part of any contractor’s vocabulary. Repair or replacement of a home sewer meant digging it up, in whole or in part, with results that were messy, disruptive, and often incomplete. Then Ward assembled and tested the prototype of what was to become the TRIC lateral pipe bursting system.

    None better. No one knows trenchless like TRIC. We have used other systems and now only own and run TRIC equipment. If you don't own trenchless, you have no business replacing sewer mains.

    Excellent experience with Tric. We have burst 40 plus sewers using Tric and each job went as well or better than planned. We do not own the equipment currently, but do all the prep and subcontract the work to another contractor to do the actual burst. Great product, Great results and Happy customers every time!

    I bought a Tric trenchless machine a few years back and it has been a very good tool for the most of it, I did have a few problems with there power pack and attachments and the replacement for theme are very expensive, also to rent specialty tools that can also be pricey. but the main component which is the ram is very good. overall tric tools is a good company to do business with, it just would be nicer if they where not so expensive.
