Eckel 9⅞ HS-55 Performance you can trust!

Enhanced High Torque

The all new Eckel 9⅞ HS-55 is the result of months of engineering and extensive stress analysis that insures higher performance, reliability, and long life. Eckel 9⅞ HS-55 provides world-class performance with up to 55,000 ft-lbs maximum torque. The tong features our new patent pending CASE STIFFENER technology that enhances overall torque output. Having a high full 360° rotational torque and speed-shifting capability insures the tong can makeup special torque-turn connections that require continuous rotation. A two-speed Hydra-Shift motor is coupled with a two-speed gear train to provide (4) torque levels and (4) RPM speeds allowing the operator remarkable control of the connection. 

Exceptional Gripping Range

Either pivot heads with rig dies or slide heads with wrap-around dies are available upon order from 3½ through 9⅞ inch.

Hydraulic Backup

Optionally available with Eckel Wedge Drive Tri-Grip® Backup offering a high performance no compromise backup that is suitable for make-up and break-out of the most resilient connections. The backup is capable of handling tubulars from 3½ in. to 11 in. (88.9 - 279.4 mm).

SPACE SAVER™ technology for today's smaller rigs!

Compact Operational Footprint

Tong dimensions are critical design aspect that our engineers worked to reduce for today’s smaller rigs. The result was having one of the industry's smallest operational footprints tongs for its capacity and torque. The patent pending SPACE SAVER™ door that hydraulically opens vertically, allowing for the tong to work in a much smaller operational area on rig floors and is also less labor-intensive operating. The door opens to the opposite side of the tong operator, allowing full view of tong throat area while positioning the tong on the tubular. A fast 2-second door operation is all that is required to open or close the door.

Fully Enclosed Safety
Door Interlock

Enhanced Safety Design

The safety door interlock prevents tong operation when the tong door is open. The fully enclosed safety door interlock device mitigates tampering and accidental damage by drilling fluids, loose vee-door tubular or other unseen events. A front panel provides access to the door inter-lock for any maintenance required.
