How It Works

The loader’s auxiliary hydraulics power a motor that drives a screw-type boring bit through the ground as the machine is driven forward. The ground is compacted to create a tunnel under the driveway or sidewalk.

When the bit reaches the other side, a reaming bit is installed. The loader is backed up and the rotating reaming bit further compacts the soil as it pulls the service through the enlarged tunnel.

Additional Details

This unit helps to easily install underground cables and flexible pipes with little or no damage to existing roads, sidewalks or other existing structures.

The hydraulically powered attachment bores horizontally to accommodate pipe or cable up to 4” in diameter. After boring, the attachment works to pull the pipe or cable through the hole.

The boring unit frame allows the drive head to be mounted on the front of the loader in three positions: on the center, right or left side. This allows the attachment to be positioned directly next to obstacles, such as buildings, and bore exactly were the operator desires.
