With the GM 1800 P trencher as a drainage plow, drainage work can be done very well
Using the GM 1800 P trencher for drainage work
The GM 1800 P trencher as a drainage plow has already proven itself in numerous drainage jobs. The trencher for drainage reaches a plowing depth of up to 1,800 millimeters, creating deep, clean and precise trenches. However, it is more than just a drainage machine and is therefore also suitable for laying cables or gas and water pipes. The machine benefits from its 6-cylinder turbo diesel engine, which generates 400 hp or 294.2 kW and thus provides plenty of power and performance. It takes only a very short time with such drainage machines to mill a large number of trenches or a very long trench.
A strength of such drainage machines is their hydraulic steering. Thanks to this, drainage work can be carried out very flexibly and adapted to the respective soil and environmental conditions. The caterpillar track of the drainage machines proves to be extremely helpful here. This operates with a fully hydrostatic travel drive, which ensures the greatest possible flexibility in use. This enables the machine operators to adjust the track width of the trencher for drainage from 2.70 to 4 meters during operation.
Possible equipment features of a trencher for drainages
The use of the trencher GM 1800 P
Before using a trencher for drainage, it should be remembered that the GM 1800 P trencher has a dead weight of 30,000 kg. The area of operation must be suitable for such a heavy device. The equipment used plays a role here. Indeed, if additional elements are used together with the drainage machines, their weight again increases significantly. Likewise, when choosing the appropriate trencher, the plowing depth is crucial. Among other things, this determines whether a milling machine is suitable for a particular project.
A trencher for drainage is used in a wide variety of weather conditions. It is therefore pleasant that the comfort cabin has both a heating and air conditioning system. In this way, machine operators always work in the most pleasant conditions possible and can concentrate fully on their task. On request, it is possible to equip the cabin with air suspension or a particularly wide window front. The GM 1800 P trencher is also one of the drainage machines suitable for drainage pipes with a diameter of 50-160 millimeters.
