About Mole Ploughing
The principle is simple, rather than disturb the ground with conventional trench excavation methods we mole plough the pipe or cable or even both under the ground with our vibrating plough without disturbing the ground not even close to the disturbance of conventional trench excavation methods.
The vertical vibrating plough blade cuts/slices the ground leaving an extra thin 3-4 inch gap in the soil allowing the cables, ducts or pipes to slot in with minimal excavation and backfilling and which can be driven over afterwards to complete the pipe or cable pull.
Due to the continuous way the mole plough trenches, it’s easier to implement longer pipes, meaning fewer connections, which decreases risk.
This method provides superior savings to our customers as the labour costs and material costs decrease dramatically.
The system is perfect for:
- Pre-ducted power or telecoms cables
- Water piping and irrigation systems
- Direct burial of cables – S.W.A., telecoms, fibre-optics, electrical and data cables etc.
- Gas pipelines
- Installing water pipes
