It's been a busy start to the year with exhibitions in New Orleans (UCT) and Indianapolis (WWETT) where we doubled our normal booth size and showed multiple Shooters with various accessories. One of the new products offered this year is a basic Shooter for those who want something similar to the original model but with a lower cost than the flagship self-lubricating and ruggedly mobile hand truck. The basic Shooter uses the same body but with a simple top funnel (no knife gate, no oiler system) and sits on a simple A-Frame. It is easily portable with two people and still puts liner in the ground like Shooters have been reliably doing since the 1990's. Like all Shooters, it's solidly built to last for years of commercial use and retails for less than $20,000.
If you didn't get a chance to see us at WWETT or UCT, we'll be exhibiting in Palm Springs at No Dig the third week of March. We'll again have multiple Shooters where you can get some hands on time and see for yourself why so many are fans of the simple and effective, stoutly built, user-friendly Shooter. And we're still hearing how much operators love our lubrication system with overspray guard that keeps them dry during installation, and the knife gate for after the tail passes. The new hand truck model is sure a fan favorite. And for those of you who have been in the business a long time and know Steve, our founder and inventor of THE SHOOTER, the first continuous air-inversion machine for cipp, we're happy to have Steve along with us at No Dig! Stop by the booth #563 and say hello. We'd love to see you and thank you personally for your business or new interest!
