Do you think it’s possible to pull a 450 foot run out of pvc pipe right now in Massachusetts?

I’m guessing it may still be a bit early for that.

What sizes? (conduit, and wire) Do you have a tugger? Straight run? Is the wire intact? Enough to put a heavy load on them? Can you blow air through the pipe? Or is it full of water?

It's probably full of ice.

As @joebanana said I'd put about 90lbs of air on it. If you don't get a clean duct I'd wait.

Putting a heavy tugger or truck mounted capstan on a frozen pipe could break it apart, then you're screwed.

Hopefully it's not junky orangeburg
