262-2040 Pneumatic Heavy Duty Tapper

For 1/4” to 6" Diameter Taps in pneumatic pipelines

The Petersen® 262-2040 Pneumatic Hot Tapper is sized for limited space and light weight one man operation. It will tap larger holes than any manual crank Tapper and air pressure will allow it to tap up to 6” diameter holes often at least as fast as larger hydraulic machines.

  • Taps ¼” to 5 ¾” diameter holes
  • Low cost, much less than hydraulic tappers
  • Far more efficient and larger holes than the hand crank tappers
  • Light weight for one-man operation
  • Pneumatic cutter force adjustable for each size and pipe material
  • Works with any electric, hydraulic, or pneumatic drill motor with a standard ½” chuck
