MBW exhibiting Hornet rock drill at No-Dig Live

Since 1987, MBW Europe have been manufacturing a range of Utility products to assist with locating, excavating and reinstating utility services. These products can help to reduce Hand/Arm vibration and injury to the operator.

The M10d magnetometer can be used to pinpoint the location of buried metallic mains to minimise the size of excavation. The ‘Hornet’ rock drill has been designed to significantly reduce the Hand/Arm vibration associated with using rock drills. The Hornet Rock Drill has also been designed to allow the operator to use the drill when stood in an upright position which can help prevent lower back injuries. The Hornet is compact, lightweight, easy to move and it takes the drill out of the hands of the operator to reduce exposure to Hand/Arm vibration.

MBW Europe will also be showcasing the Soil Pick with all the available accessories. Over the years this tool has become the excavation tool of choice for many utility contractors. It has been designed to loosen the soil safely when excavating around pipes and cables. It utilises a high-speed stream of compressed air so it can be used safely to expose buried pipes, cables and tree root structures without damage. The Soil Pick can also help to reduce Hand/Arm vibration and the risk of injury from cable strikes.

In addition to the standard unit there are a number of accessories to support the use of the Soil Pick. There are a range of different extension barrels and angled nozzles to enable the operator to loosen material from under and around services. The latest addition to the accessories is a water attachment that allows the Soil Pick to be used as a pressure washer to clean the work area once the job is complete.

Radius Trenchless – The Radius Trenchless range is a heavy-duty range suitable for installation by Mole Ploughing and Horizontal Directional Drilling where high tensile properties and increased abrasion resistance are required.

Radius sub-ducts are designed for cable blowing and pulling and are made from HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) and feature class-leading permanent co-extruded low friction HDPE inner lining for optimised cable installations.

Robust and flexible, Radius sub-ducts offer high performance in complex installations (e.g. many bends and gradients).

The sub-ducts are available with ribbed or smooth inner bore according to user preference and can be supplied pre-roped or pre-cabled and supplied in continuous lengths on single-way drums or multi-way drums to increase ease of installation and minimise cost. In addition, Radius Trenchless offers a comprehensive range of fittings and accessories including bends, connectors, spacers, seals and access chambers.
