New Quick-Change Wheels for ROVVER X Attach, Detach in Seconds—without Tools!

Share Article

Patented design means you don’t have to search for bolts, washers, or any tools, making your setup and clean-up hassle-free.

Quick-change wheels for ROVVER X attach with a click—no bolts, washers or tools.

These new wheels extend [ROVVER X's] hassle-free philosophy to further simplify operation and boost productivity.

A new quick-change design allows wheels on the ROVVER X pipe inspection crawler to be changed quickly, without requiring screws, washers, bolts or any tools. To attach, each wheel is simply pressed onto a locking hub. To detach, the center of the locking hub is pressed to release the wheel. The design streamlines crawler setup and cleaning, and eliminates the risk of wheel detachment due to poorly tightened bolts.

“ROVVER X has always emphasized simple operation,” says Richard Lindner, President of Envirosight. “Its cable attaches without tools, and its camera mounts with a quarter turn of a single locking mechanism. These new wheels extend that hassle-free philosophy to further simplify operation and boost productivity.”

Ten wheel options are initially available: rubber wheels in four sizes, each with a tread pattern that enhances traction and smooth rolling; abrasive wheels in three sizes; and carbide wheels in three sizes. All wheels feature an optimized geometry for more ground clearance and better centering.

Quick-change wheels are available on all new ROVVER X crawlers, and the locking hubs can be retrofitted onto existing ROVVER X crawlers.

About ROVVER X

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 of 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.
