Diameter and Distance
Our directional drill rigs can cover distances of up to 250m in one drill and install ducts up to 250mm diameter. Suitable for many applications, they are steerable, precise to within 25mm. We have recently added the capability to cover 175m of 350mm diameter with our Astec rig.
Our impact moles cover a distance of up to 15m in one mole shot and install ducts up to 63mm.
We are also able to install new drains to manholes in the road by precisely drilling at a constant fall of 1:100 without excavating the ground around the property.
Mole teams work UK wide and often a job starts by looking at the location on Google Earth whilst discussing the contract requirements with the customer who will then request plans of underground services from the utilities.
