Abstract

A pneumatically operated underground piercing tool 10 that includes an elongate cylindrical body (12) carrying an anvil (14) at one end and and a striker (16) slidably received within a chamber (25) defined by the body (12) and captured therein by an end cap (20). A valve assembly (22) controls the communication of pressurized air to and from the body (12) and is operator adjustable in order to produce forward or rearward movement of the piercing tool (10).
