The 28HP is designed to take it. A sturdy rectangular frame design provides operators with a rigid and safe fusion platform. The machine's hydraulic system is powered by Connectra's rugged, efficient, easy to maintain hand pump and the ball bearing facer is powered by a durable electric motor. The 28HP is easy to learn and operate and like all Connectra equipment you can expect low maintenance costs and a rapid return on your investment.
