Trench Cutting (for Laying New Pipes)
Trench cutting can be done as open laying with or without a bed of sand.
The soil is loosened, crushed and conveyed by a trench cutter (tracked, wheeled). It is deposited along the side of the trenchor driven away. The pipe train is usually assembled outside the trench and placed on the resulting trench floor.
Filling and compaction can be handled by a second machine unit. The pipe trench is usually backfilled with the excavated soil.
