New Jumbo Wheels for Envirosight's ROVVER X 400 Crawler Answer Toughest Sewer Pipe Inspection Challenges

Oct 27, 2014

New jumbo wheels give Envirosight's ROVVER X 400 crawler the weight and traction necessary to navigate large interceptor lines with high flow.

Envirosight now offers new jumbo wheels that give the ROVVER X 400 crawler a wider stance to straddle debris, plus the capability to center in lines 30" and larger. They also add more than 100 lbs to the crawler’s weight, enhancing traction and travel range.

"This is the most powerful and capable large-diameter pipe crawler available without requiring in-manhole assembly," says Richard Lindner, President of Envirosight. "These new wheels were specifically designed to add weight while maintaining a slim profile that lessens the effect of fast flows found in large interceptor lines."

As with all ROVVER X wheel sets, the new jumbo wheels mount with just one bolt apiece, and have key slots for positive traction. They feature stainless and aluminum construction, and feature circular cutout for the addition of more weight.


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.
