L 135 mainline pipe inspection crawler for large pipes

Inspecting Large Pipe with the L 135 – The Lafette Carriage

Rausch pipe inspection equipment is known for being interchangeable and upgradeable. With the new Lafette Carriage, the already-robust Rausch L 135 crawler is upgraded to inspect much larger pipes with additional weight, power, and maneuverability in mainline pipes up to 72″ diameter.

The L 135 crawler mounts into the cradle of the Lafette Carriage. Each wheel in the 4 wheel drive transmission of the L 135 connects to and drives the much larger wheels of the Lafette.

Rausch customers are already familiar with the height extension for the KS 135 mainline camera – it mounts directly onto the electric lift, and the camera mounts to the top of the height extension. When combined with the Lafette Carriage, the camera can be centered in much larger pipe sizes.

And the logical question is, how does the KS 135 Camera illuminate pipes which are large enough to walk through? The light extensions which mount directly to the KS 135 can be stacked, like in the photo below.
