The trencher with boom GM 140 AFH-600 is used in pipeline construction

Modern pipeline construction relies on high quality equipment to mill clean and stable trenches for laying various pipes. This is just as important for private construction projects such as a home as it is for urban development tasks or large construction sites. The GM 140 AFH-600 trencher is used particularly frequently for this purpose. This is a trencher with boom, which is particularly flexible in use.

Flexible application of the GM 140 AFH-600 trencher in pipeline construction

This trencher with boom can be used both in combination with an excavator and together with a tractor. The assembly can be done with just a few hang-ups. Thus, the device is very suitable even for short milling lengths. A significant advantage of this milling machine for pipeline construction is that it has a slewing ring as standard. This makes it possible to mount the milling machine laterally offset to the excavator or tractor. Thus, the vehicle itself can stand far enough away from an obstacle and still cut a trench for pipes directly behind it. In addition, such a slewing ring allows work on steep slopes or in areas with embankments.

This is how the GM 140 AFH-600 trencher handles excavated material

Excavation plays an important role in trenching. On the one hand, it must be moved far enough away so that it cannot slide back again. On the other hand, it is indispensable for subsequent backfilling. Therefore, this trencher with boom works with a special conveyor belt that can be mounted on both sides of the trencher. Consequently, it is possible to remove the excavated material both to the left and to the right of the unit. It is placed at a safe distance and can later be retrieved and used to fill the trench without much effort. This method leaves the edge of the trench standing, as it is no longer loaded by the excavation.

Flexibly adapt the trencher with boom to the working area

Companies in the pipeline construction industry have to cope with a wide variety of substrates and conditions. In addition, different trenches are required for different products. It is therefore pleasant that the GM 140 AFH-600 trencher can be flexibly adapted. Among other things, it offers the possibility of achieving a milling depth of 70-600 millimeters and a milling width of 0-1,500 millimeters by means of various milling chains and a two-beam system. This is in addition to laying pipes in landscaping and gardening. Depending on the soil can be used chisels, mixing chains and knife chains.

Possible equipment elements for a trencher GM 140 AFH-600

The entire concept of this trencher with boom for pipeline construction is oriented towards flexibility. That is why there is a range of equipment with which such a milling machine can be individualized and adapted to specific working conditions. For example, the use of reels and tripods is very useful, but also pipe laying shafts with various cable reels can be used together with a trencher with boom. A sole scraper with sole plate also provides flexibility. This is because it adjusts automatically or mechanically to the milling depth. Last but not least, it is no problem to rely on a trencher with manual or automatic laser system in pipeline construction.

Work efficiently with a trencher with boom from Trenchmeister

This trencher with boom for pipeline construction comes from grabenmeister and is increasingly used on a large number of construction sites. This is due to the fact that such vehicles are very robust and reliable equipment. They are equally suitable for large projects and small construction projects and are easy to operate and use in pipeline construction. When selecting, care should be taken to ensure that the heifer weighs a deadweight of 3,500 kg. Accordingly, it can only be used with excavators and tugs that can handle such weight. In addition, the weight of the device may vary depending on which additional components and equipment it is combined with and used with.
