HOW IT WORKS
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.

We messaged Lanes mains late on a Saturday evening with a worrying leak on our driveway. They were extremely responsive and put our minds at rest. He came out at 8am on Monday morning and fixed the leak quickly and to a very high standard. They were polite, professional and organised. I would highly recommend them. Thanks again for doing such a brilliant job.
When our water pipe burst we contacted Lanes Mains after an unfruitful number of calls to other tradesmen. Their engineers arrived less than an hour later and what could have turned into a catastrophe was quickly and efficiently dealt with.
