Premiere continually strives to exceed our own capabilities while increasing the efficiency of our customers. In order to meet the tubing needs of our customers, we performed extensive research to find the safest, most efficient, and versatile tool in the tubing market. The preferred tubing tong used by Premiere is the Eckel 5 1/2" Hydra-Shift VS Tong.
ECKEL 5 1/2" HYDRA-SHIFT VS TONG
 
Compact in size but big in torque, the Eckel 5 Hydra-Shift VS Tong is capable of handling tubing, drill pipe, and casing from 1 1/20 to 5 . Hydra-Shift technology provides the ability to shift from high speed to low speed without having to manually shift the tong. The two-speed motor combined with the two-speed gear train offers a more flexible choice of torque/RPMs to work with during make-up or break-out.
