Envirosight's ROVVER X Sets New Record for Largest Crawler Sale Ever

Share Article

75 Unit inspection crawler sale reflects industry's move toward simpler, more productive inspection platforms.

The ROVVER X inspection system answers the sewer inspection industry's preference for a more capable, adaptable, portable and scalable inspection system.

Landmark deals like this confirm our industry’s shift toward simple, more productive inspection platforms.

One of the largest UK water companies has purchased more than 75 ROVVER X inspection crawler systems (also including the Agilios push camera) for use on their fleet of jetting vehicles. The new order, which totals approximately $7M, is the single largest inspection crawler sale in history for any manufacturer.

“Landmark deals like this confirm our industry’s shift toward simple, more productive inspection platforms,” says Richard Lindner, President of Envirosight. “This customer wanted a single vehicle for jetting and inspection, which requires a crawler system that is simple and portable, yet powerful and adaptable to the full range of pipe sizes and conditions. ROVVER X proved the most suitable—it met those needs with the added benefit of a closed-loop viewing/recording/reporting interface.”

ROVVER X is Envirosight’s flagship inspection crawler line, addressing pipe inspection applications from 4-120”. Its modular design has made it a favorite among a broad range of customers, from large cities and municipal contractors to small towns and engineering firms. For the past ten years, Envirosight has seen double-digit unit sales increases for ROVVER X on an average annual basis.


ROVVER X is the one pipe inspection system that lets an operator do everything—control inspections, view and record digital video, log observations, generate reports, and link directly to asset-management software. All this capability is packed into a simple three-piece layout, with no CCU or other components to clutter the workspace.

Though remarkably self-contained, ROVVER X is built on an expandable digital backbone. Not only can an operator add side-scanning and laser profiling, he or she can view data from onboard sensors, automate tasks with macros, and measure defects onscreen. And future capabilities are limitless—ROVVER X’s firmware updates automatically to the latest features, and its architecture is ready for any accessory—even ones that don’t yet exist.

Advanced technology aside, ROVVER X is built for the rigors of sewer inspection. Twelve wheel options—plus camera lift, carriage and illumination accessories—mean ROVVER X transforms in seconds to inspect any size line. Its six-wheel drive with proportional steering navigates past obstacles, and overlapping wheels climb offsets better than tracks. Powerful motors and a geared drive train maximize range and pivot capability, even with carriage and 10” knobby tires installed.

Ultimately, however, reliability and productivity have made ROVVER the number one crawler brand worldwide. ROVVER X continues this tradition with unsurpassed video resolution and 50% more illumination, leaving no detail hidden. Its powerful reel monitors cable tension optically to prevent slack and minimize resistance, allowing one-man operation. And self-diagnostic capabilities, plus access to operating history, only enhance the uptime of the one crawler that already leads the industry.
