What is

With the use of modern plant and machinery trenching has evolved to be more cost effective, safe and time efficient as apposed to the more traditional methods.

Conroy innovative trenching is achieved by the following methods;

Sliding Offset Conveyor Trencher – This is a chain with carbide teeth, sharks teeth and full cutter cups which rotates and is connected to a hydraulic motor which cuts into the soil. The chain then lifts the material out of the trench and into an auger which then disperses the soil evenly over the top of the spread. 

Vibratory ‘Mole’ Plough – Cuts down into the ground with the use of a vibrating motor disturbing the soil allowing for the pipe to be fed through therefore requiring no backfill.

Centre Mount Rockwheel – Made for hard aggressive ground such as rock, concrete, tarmac, stone. Rockwheels are available with a choice of cutting depths and widths.
