Underground borers from Air Powered Services are available for sale or hire. They create a straight compact bore that is ideal as an alternative to the typical open trench/cut process of laying pipes and services.
By using underground borers, contractors are able to avoid disturbing road and landscape surfaces, therefore avoiding traffic disruptions. They will also remove the need to reinstate these surfaces once the job is completed.
To keep the system lubricated during operation, these underground borers also feature a mist oiler. This tool can easily be dismantled, checked then reassembled within minutes on site.
Underground borers can be used by contractors to install a range of pipes and services including:
- Electricity and Cable; and
- Gas, water and sewerage pipes below streets, footpaths and driveways
There is also a choice of six different diameter barrels including a 54mm stubby, for use in confined spaces. These measure 45mm to 148mm in diameter.
