Trenchless Moling

Pits are excavated at intervals for the mole to be placed

The mole is entered into the earth horizontally to avoid damage and disruption.

Mole is entered into the earth at the bottom of the pit

The mole works with pulsed compressed air causing its head to repeatedly hammer against the soil in front of it.

Destination pits of similar proportions are also dug

This is where the mole emerges.

The utility pipe can then be pulled through the hole

The mole, a pneumatic cylinder hammers against the soil, this reduces the installation time, disturbance and cost.
