|Title:||A TRAILER FOR UNCOILING PLASTIC PIPE|
An uncoiling trailer (110) is used for uncoiling large, plastic pipe coil (112). The uncoiling trailer uses a re-usable bobbin (130) to secure the pipe coil (112) within the uncoiling or de-coiling trailer (110). A relay or succession of bobbin and pipe coil assemblies (130, 112) may be loaded into the de-coiling trailer (110) in exchange for an empty or spent bobbin (130) from the uncoiling trailer (110). The empty bobbin (130) may be re-loaded with another pipe coil (1 12) further down the laying track. A tailgate (136) of the uncoiling trailer (110) has a take-off head (138) with a pipe haul- off. In use the take-off head (138) may be used to pull the uncoiling pipe section through the take-off head (138) against a coupled braking resistance applied to the rotation of the uncoiling pipe coil (112) and / or bobbin (130).
