Street Trenching

A Revolutionary Approach to Street Trenching

The time to cut heavy asphalt over concrete with reinforcing steel has been reduced from days to hours with the Street Trencher. Drum selection determines the maximum depth of the cut, ranging from 0 inches up to 20 inches. Combining large hydraulic pumps with high engine horsepower, the Street Works machine is capable of producing more results in one operation. In a single pass, the Street Trencher simultaneously opens a cut in the pavement and pulverizes the road surface to a finely-crushed mixture of pavement and base material. Excavation of the trench can begin immediately after the machine has passed.

With a single machine and operator, several operations are streamlined and completed in just one step. As the pavement is cut, the drum simultaneously crushes the material into a mixture that is suitable for backfill. The costs to haul away and dispose of chunk broken pavement are eliminated or reduced. Because the machine refills the processed area it cuts, traffic is able to cross the job site sooner without the need for steel plating, resulting in a substantial reduction in traffic patterns.

The Street Trencher is engineered to balance size with agility, and power with precision. It’s a faster, easier method that actually produces less noise, dust, and job site vibrations than traditional pavement cutting methods.

A Textured Cut

The top edge of the cut is as sharp as a milling machine produces. The sides of the cut, however, are not like the polished surface left behind by a diamond saw blade. The polished surface can be the source of a fracture plane when the pavement is replaced.  The textured surface provided by the Street Trencher creates a mechanical connection with the original pavement to the final pavement.
