Tricon Pipe Handler

Tricon is continuously improving our products and services through innovation. Our latest creation is the Uni-Lift Pipe Handler that enables the safe and efficient change out of drill pipe on rigs using state-of-the-art technology and automation.


Since the utilization of the Pipe Handler in October 2015, we have:

  • Completed 242 jobs over 11 sites in 43 months
  • Changed out 582 lengths of drill pipe on 275 drills
  • Completed over 1,661 man hours of work
  • Covered almost 100,000 km

And all without a single major incident. Well done to our operators Peter Thodey and Michael King.


By keeping the personnel out of the line-of-fire using remote control and allowing the drill pipe to be changed where the drill rig is situated, we believe that the Pipe Handler will continue to provide excellent service in the future.
