    Preparation: Have plenty of wood on hand for every pull. 2 x 4, 4 x 4, and 4 x 6 sizes are best, in 2 to 3 lengths for resistance cribbing, and 1 lengths for pulley support.

    Two pulls: Two lateral spurs join at pit where worker is digging. Rear property line is to right; main runs down service alley. This pull is less than 10 lineal feet, but still saves a lot of

    manual digging in hard Texas white rock soil.

    Fusion jig: Remove trimmings after each facing.

    Staging area: Find an area as flat and unobstructed as possible to fuse pipe.

    Cooling time: After fusing, allow joints to cool for 10 minutes (SDR17 4 & 6) before removing from jig. See pipe manufacturers specs for more detail. Also, protect trimmer blades

    (above) by setting trimmer wheel down on edge rather than flat as shown.

    First pull: Watching for the cable clevis sheath (terminator) to appear at pulley plate.

    Arrival: Clevis sheath (in shadow under resistance plate bolt) just visible between pulley plate and pulley wheel. Keep this area free from debris to allow clear view of cable at all times,

    so as not to pull cable sheath under pulley wheel. Note east spur above pulley.

    Gone: In more difficult or angular entries, assist pipe entry by standing on pipe or otherwise flexing it to be in line with old pipe.

    During pull: After tension is applied and ram is stable, get out of the pulling pit.

    Resistance plate: Some users find it handy to cut out a copy of the resistance plate using 1 plywood. A wood template can be used to size up pulling pits as they are being dug (rather

    than lifting the metal plate in and out of the pit).

    Extender cage: With a straight and clean pulling wall, often there is no need for cribbing between cage and earth. In this instance, ground is dry and solid.

    Ram assembly: A pit roughly 4 in length allows ample space for using the extender cage. When the pits must be shorter, extra wood cribbing is used instead of the cage.

    Last foot: Head assembly freed from earth.

    Ram care: Find a clean place to set ram during job (such as a small piece of plywood). Keep jaws clean and protect chrome rods from nicks and deep scratches by keeping ram in

    contracted position when not in use. (Damaged rods can cause leaks in hydraulic seals.)

    Pull complete: Cage alone (without extra cribbing) provides enough extension to free bursting head and expose pipe to trim minimum length behind PE cap.
