Tip #3: Reconfiguring the VT 100 Crawler
The Versatrax 100 is perfect for pipe, tank or vessel inspections and is capable of being reconfigured to a variety of pipe diameters to ensure the tracks function effectively. Here’s how to adjust the tracks from the wide setting, to a configuration more suitable to a smaller pipe:
- Locate and loosen the locking nut on the front of the Crawler
