GBM Power Packs provide hydraulic power and feature a diesel engine or electric motor to operate GBM jacking frames and tooling. Power packs include hydraulic hose reels that connect to GBM jacking frames, a remote pendant for in‐shaft operator control and all the standard tooling for pilot tube installations. The extendable power unit assembly contains the engine or motor, hydraulic hose reels with quick coupler connections, variable volume piston pumps, fluid reservoirs, and pressure gauges. Doors at both ends allow for operator walk‐through access to the wall‐mounted tooling storage rack.
Akkerman Power Packs are provided with standard tooling for pilot tube installation, including the pilot tube breakout tool with hydraulic power pack, pilot tube scraper, a pilot tube to reaming head adapter, a steering head kit, pilot tube frame support bars, pilot tube wrench set, nitrogen purging kit, and launch shaft breakout tool.
The P4075D Power Pack provides hydraulic power and features a Tier IV diesel engine to operate GBM jacking frames and tooling.
The P100E and P200E Power Packs provide contractors with an alternative to address regional requirements of the EPA’s mandate for Tier 4 diesel emission standards. They are equipped with all the same favored amenities with added benefits of a low decibel noise level, simplified controls, and reduced maintenance.
- The P4075D and P100E Power Packs have a two‐pump system for independent control of jacking and rotation.
- The P200E Power Packs feature a three‐pump system for independent control of jacking, rotation, and the PCH cutter bit.
- Power packs include hydraulic hose reels that connect to GBM jacking frames, a remote pendant for in‐shaft operator control, and all the standard tooling for pilot tube installations

I have been working in the underground construction for the past 40 years. In the last 25 years I’ve been involved with all kinds of tunneling operations. Hand mine tunnels using jacking equipment, wood box tunnels dug by hand. But my favorite type of tunneling is MTBM’s. I have been working with and around Akkerman tunnel machines from 120” wheeled machines all the way down to the 48” SC tunnel machine. We’ve done successful runs in ranges from 200’ to 800’ with no problems. In all my years of tunneling we have never had a failure of equipment to cause us any down time. When we have had issues with mechanical parts or service needed Akkerman can usually get you the parts pretty quickly and technicians can get on a plane and help you out also. The team at Akkerman is always ready to answer any questions or problems you may have. They can help you decide on what equipment might work best for your particular job needs. I’ve also been involved with the GBM equipment we have run 32” PCH installing 30” Hobas pipe and also 44” PCH installing 42” Hobas pipe. We have had great success with GBM runs up to 500’ in length. Our last purchase was a new 5200 series jacking frame and 60” series 2 MTBM. We chose Akkerman for this equipment for our past experience and the fact they are made in the USA and can service us quickly. It truly has been great working with Akkerman.
