Reed Manufacturing Co. 700APD Power Drive

August 2013, Vol. 68 No. 8

Reed’s 700APD Power Drive is a portable, pneumatic, heavy-duty power drive which provides power for threading pipe and conduit up to two-inch diameter.

Since it is pneumatic, it can be used in environments where electric shock or sparks from an electric tool are hazardous. The included Safety Arm absorbs the forces generated during threading and frees up the operator to oil the dies during threading. Its 4-hp pneumatic motor turns at 28 rpm no load. Reed’s 700APD has a maximum torque of 400 foot-pounds and uses Reed R12+ Segmental Dies and Dropheads. 700APD is also suitable for powering valve exercisers, such as Reed’s Valve Operators, to speed up emergency work and maintenance on water line valves. 800.666.3691, reedmfgco.com
