Impact moling equipment, also referred to as directional moling or trenchless technology, plays a crucial role in the construction and installation of underground utility lines, including gas, water, electrical, and telecommunications cables. Essig, Grundomat®, and Hercu Pneumatic are well-known and trusted brands in this field. This innovative method eliminates the necessity for conventional open trench excavation and is specifically engineered to create horizontal channels beneath road surfaces.
The advantages of employing moling equipment for utilities are manifold, encompassing reduced surface disruption, minimized environmental impact, and expedited installation when compared to traditional excavation techniques. This technology is particularly prevalent where open trenching proves impractical or disruptive.
