Super Handler™ - XK-100 or XK-150
   combo pipe handler & power swivel 

It's fun to create Disruptive Technology!

The Super Handler™ is a radical pipe handler which includes either of our power swivels !

This is a major departure from the way things have been done before!

It's fun designing way different machinery, and that's what we do at Venturetech !

Combining our power swivels with a unique pipe handler brings many benefits. See below!

Cuts costs, saves time, and increases safety !  Two patents issued, 4 patents pending.

Our customers say this will be a game-changer!

Cuts Total Costs

  • Less initial cost than the two separate units of a pipe handler and a power swivel.
  • Less operating cost than two separate units –               fuel, insurance, etc.
  • Less personnel cost than two separate units -                only one driver/operator.
  • Less maintenance cost than two separate units - only one trailer, one engine, one hydraulic system, etc.
  • Less environmental impact – One truck, one trailer,      one engine, one hydraulic system.
  • Flexible usage – Rental companies can offer swivel and/or pipe handler services with one unit.
  • Time Saving – Requires no dangerous pinning.               Selector pins slip easily in place at ground level.
  • Space Saving – Only one footprint on rig site.
  • Fast Cycle Time - As fast as pipe is needed.
  • 25’ horizontal reach without extension -              Extendable trough is built into the unit.
  • Range 3 pipe capacity without extension.
  • Handles 3000 lb joints of pipe without adjustment.
  • Engine is same as our XK-100 or XK-150 Power Swivel.
  • XK-100 model tows with 3500 or 4500 truck,                  uses standard electric brakes.
  • XK-150 model tows with tractor and 5th wheel hitch,  uses standard air brake axles.

Increases Safety

  • Safe - For spin-up, driller presets swivel tilt                                         to repeat same pipe angle every time.
  • Safe - Torque Skate not only pushes and pulls pipe,                       it also holds light torque against swivel spin up                   so nobody tries to use a pipe wrench for backup.
  • Safe - If spinup with swivel is not allowed by company                       policy, Torque Skate will spin up pipe onto the                     non-rotating swivel pin.
  • Safe - Super Handler moves power swivel, hoses, and                   control panel to and from rig floors up to 40' high.               No winching.
  • Safe - 25’ horizontal reach with no extensions required.
  • Safe - Handler also moves misc equipment and tools                  to and from rig floor safely – up to 3000 lbs.
  • Safe - When swivel is not in use, it may be hydraulically                 stored in parking position behind bumper.
  • Safe - Only one driver, truck, and trailer instead of two.
  • Safe - Rig floor heights to 40’ are selected at ground                       level and require no dangerous pinning.
  • Fail Safe – Backups or locks on all movements.
  • Safe Design Specs – API 8C, 4F, 2C, AISC, ASME, SAE, DOT
Every aspect of the Super Handler™ is designed with safey and cost reduction in mind.
