UMS' trenchless technologies such as horizontal directional drilling, impact moling and pipe bursting are playing an ever greater role in the rehabilitation and renewal of the nation's utility infrastructure. As demand has grown, UMS has responded by investing in new equipment and plant which it uses on its own projects and also to hire out to other contractors.
If you have a specific plant hire requirement or would like to obtain further information please contact us.
TrenchingUMS recognises that 'no-dig' techniques are not applicable in all situations and has built up a fleet of chain trenchers which can excavate over 500m of trench per day in favourable ground conditions. Chain trenchers are ideally suited for verges and fields.
For hard surfaces such as concrete and rock, UMS uses a chain trencher fitted with a 'rock wheel'. By producing a neat and compact trench, UMS is able to reduce the amount of reinstatement required.
Chain trenchers form part of UMS' extensive hire fleet.
