GM 1 All wheel drive

Trenchers from LIBA: The compact and powerful GM 1 all-wheel drive for laying cables

When digging trenches for irrigation systems, drainage and underground cables, trenchers for cable laying are the first choice. LIBA has various trenchers in its program, which are convincing with their all-terrain and powerful caterpillar drive, a user-friendly control system and the extremely robust construction. The small but powerful GM 1 Allrad has straightforward controls and is therefore suitable for quick familiarization, because its mode of operation is immediately clear from the first use.

Trenching for cable laying

Digging trenches for laying cables is often fraught with pitfalls, requires professional equipment and careful preparation. Trenchers from LIBA with their jerk-free drive cut clean and dead-straight trenches for cable laying every time. Regardless of the soil conditions, the milling machines are in full operation. If wet clay, stones or debris make the milling work difficult, the chain run is briefly changed between reverse and forward and the trenchers for cable laying run freely again. The low center of gravity of the milling machines guarantees safe standing even in uneven positions. If a tree stump should ever appear on the path, this will not stop the cable laying. The robustly crafted head is equipped with sufficient ground clearance for the crossing.

Cable shaft with trencher – save time and money

GM 1 All-Wheel Drive Series trenchers are diesel-powered and self-propelled all-wheel drive trenchers. They have a low dead weight and thus guarantee a low floor load. The tilt device can easily compensate for lateral slopes of up to 15 degrees. The operator platform of the trenchers can be swiveled. The excavated material is ejected either to the right or to the left. However, thanks to the conveyor belt that can be inserted on both sides, the excavated material can also be loaded directly. Due to the additional backfill hopper, milling and backfilling with gravel is realized with only one working step. Additional accessories enable direct cable and pipe feeding of the GM 1 all-wheel trenchers. In addition, the all-wheel milling machines can also be equipped with twin tires. The self-propelled machine can easily cut trenches even in firm soil types. These trenchers are indispensable tools for laying cables.

Minimal damage at maximum utilization

The extremely environmentally friendly alternative to the excavator guarantees maximum workload for cable laying without major disruptions in terms of the Nature Conservation Act. A central focus of activity in construction is the laying of cables in various designs. The services of the all-rounder include not only the construction of cable trenches, but also environmentally friendly excavation of the soil. The individual equipment of our trenchers is available on request.
