Did you know that during World War 1 it is estimated that somewhere in the region of 12,000 miles of trenches were dug?! With no machinery available the trenches were dug by hand, to considerable depths through frozen ground, this is a remarkable achievement and a testament to the resilience of those fighting. While trenches dug in warfare are used to gain an advantage, as shelter and protection, here in the UK trenches are dug everyday but for much less dramatic reasons! Used to lay drainage pipes, cables or other piping, trenches help create the UK's infrastructure, homing the essential pipes that provide power, water, communications and heat to our homes. Digging trenches, whether by hand or even by machine can be exhausting, back breaking work so investing in a compact yet powerful trenching machine could be beneficial. Here at Redband we are specialists in the supply of heavy duty construction equipment and understand the needs of today’s busy contractor. As part of our range of trenching machines you’ll find machines from brands including Hydrive and Bigfoot, both of which offer heavy duty models which are perfect in difficult terrains. All our trenchers are able to chew through soil, tree stumps and roots, shale and rocky ground and are able to perform in the wet, meaning time isn’t lost due to bad weather conditions. When undertaking a large project it is essential that the right equipment is used, not only will this help reduce the time it takes to create the trench but will also minimise ground disruption and give a cleaner finish. Depending on the application and terrain a range of chain lengths and machine sizes are also available. For more details call our knowledgeable sales team on 0116 260 2601.
