The trench cutting machine GM 140 AFH-600 is used in pipeline construction.
Modern pipeline construction relies on high-quality equipment to be able to mill clean and stable trenches for the laying of various pipes. This is just as important for private construction projects such as a home of one’s own as it is for urban planning tasks or large construction sites. The GM 140 AFH-600 trench cutting machine is used particularly frequently for this purpose. This is a trench cutting machine with a boom that is particularly flexible in use.
Flexible application possibilities of the trench cutting machine GM 140 AFH-600 in pipeline construction
This trencher with boom can be used in combination with an excavator or a tractor. Assembly can be done in a few easy steps. This makes the machine very suitable even for short milled sections. An important advantage of this milling machine for pipeline construction is that it is equipped with a slewing ring as standard. This makes it possible to mount the milling machine laterally offset from the excavator or tractor. This means that the vehicle itself can stand far enough away from an obstacle and still dig a trench for pipes directly behind it. In addition, such a slewing ring allows work to be carried out on steep slopes or in areas with embankments.
This is how the GM 140 AFH-600 trench milling machine handles excavation work
Excavation plays an important role in the milling of trenches. On the one hand, it must be transported far enough away to prevent it from slipping back again. On the other hand, it is indispensable for subsequent backfilling. This trench cutting machine with boom therefore works with a special conveyor belt that can be mounted on both sides of the trench cutting machine. Consequently, it is possible to transport the excavated material both to the left and to the right of the machine. It is deposited at a safe distance and can later be returned without great effort and used to fill the trench. This method ensures that the edge of the trench remains stationary as it is no longer loaded by the excavation.
Flexible adaptation of the trench cutting machine with boom to the working area
Pipeline construction companies have to cope with a wide variety of substrates and conditions. In addition, different products require trenches of different depths. It is therefore pleasant that the GM 140 AFH-600 trench cutting machine 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 using various milling chains and a two-beam system. This is also important for laying pipes in landscaping and horticulture. Depending on the soil, the machine can be used with cutting tools, mixing chains and knife chains.
Possible equipment elements for a trench cutting machine GM 140 AFH-600
The entire concept of this trench cutting machine with boom for pipeline construction is based on flexibility. This is why there is a range of equipment that can be used to individualise such a trench cutting machine and adapt it to specific working conditions. The use of reels and tripods is very useful, for example, but pipe laying shafts with different cable reels can also be used together with a trench cutting machine with boom. Flexibility is also ensured by a sole scraper with sole plate. This adjusts automatically or mechanically to the milling depth. Last but not least, it is no problem to rely on a trench cutting machine with manual or automatic laser system for pipeline construction.
Working efficiently with a trench milling machine with boom from Grabenmeister
This trench cutting machine with boom for pipeline construction was developed by trench master and is increasingly used on a large number of construction sites. This is because such vehicles are very robust and reliable. They are suitable for both large and small construction projects and are easy to operate and use in pipeline construction. When making your selection, you should make sure that the heifer weighs 2,900 kg. Accordingly, it can only be used with excavators and tractors that can handle such a weight. In addition, the weight of the machine may vary depending on the additional components and equipment with which it is combined and used.
