Gabe’s Construction
  • Horizontal Directional Drilling
  • “Using TONGHAND led to an increase in overall productivity on our tooling trip-in and trip-outs for reamers and weep subs. We had a decent amount of room on the exit-side to run tail string, but on those trips it was anywhere between a 40-65% increase in production just tripping in and out.”

  • Pipeline
  • “My rental experiences had made me a believer. DECKHAND saved labor and prevented incidents. Fewer workers also meant fewer challenges. Instead of splitting time between vacuum lifts in the summer and cranes in the winter, along came DECKHAND which was viable not only during the winter months but 365 days a year.”

    Revolutionizing the way contractors work

    “I am often asked, ‘How did you come up with the idea for the DECKHAND®?’ It is a story that I love to share, as it speaks not just to the invention of the DECKHAND®, but to the overall spirit of our company. My goal in developing the TONGHAND® was exactly the same as the original DECKHAND® – finding a better & safer way to get the job done.”
