CUES’ GraniteNet Software provides a strong foundation for decision-making to establish priorities for pipeline inspection, rehabilitation, or replacement.

Manhole inspection systems, chemical grouting systems for mainline and lateral pipe joints, lateral-reinstatement cutting systems, and advanced sonar, lidar, and laser profiling systems are also available from the industry’s infrastructure experts at CUES!


  • Currahee Lateral Reinstatement Cutter

    CUES is proud to introduce the Currahee Cutters. These cutters are specifically designed to reinstate wastewater service laterals, remove protruding taps, and brush-finish existing cuts. The cutters function in a range of 5.25" through 36" pipe, are equally effective in CIPP or fold and form liners, and can be installed on a CUES K2 truck-mounted cutter system.
    CUES also developed a new 1.9hp air motor for the small Currahee Cutter line to provide more power, increased productivity, and a smoother cut when operating in 6” - 12” relined pipe. Kits are available to retro-fit Currahee Cutters for use with Kangaroo air-motors and service kits can be purchased for regular maintenance intervals on existing motors. Contact CUES for a discussion and demonstration.

  • SPiDER

    The SPiDER Scanner is the first wireless and color manhole inspection technology in a lightweight and compact form factor. The SPiDER is a scanner which can calculate its position in the manhole shaft by using its sensor data to measure its incremental motion instead of the payout cable. SPIDER weighs less than 30 pounds and can be hand carried to easements or other previously difficult to access sites. This wireless portability is possible because the processing computer and battery supply are built into the scanner.
