Ditch finisher is among the equipment that is frequently used in construction projects. These equipments are used in the construction of trench and trench trenches. Trenches have a narrower and shallower form than canals. For this reason, trench projects are usually carried out for purposes such as drainage, electrical installation and landscaping. Ditch pavers are designed for digging and shaping small trenches.
Different paver models are designed for different trench types. Ditch finisher machine should be used in different sizes and equipment according to the size of the project.
Advantages of Ditch Finisher
Ditch finisher equipment hosts many advantages on construction sites. Among its most important advantages is the efficient opening of trenches. With the finishers, trenches are dug quickly and efficiently. It performs cutting operations (hard, compacted, soft) to suit different floor types. In this way, excavation works are completed in a short time thanks to the equipment. It saves both time and manpower.
Ditch pavers have a trench opening system with adjustable dimensions. Cutting operations are performed by calculating the depth and width. For this reason, it is often used in projects with specific trench sizes and drainage works. The equipment has versatility to be used in different projects. Thanks to its configuration feature, it can take place in cable and pipeline laying, infrastructure works, irrigation canals and landscaping works.
It helps increase productivity and efficiency. The equipment digs faster than digging by hand. In this way, it reduces the need for manpower. This allows project owners to complete their projects in a shorter time. Ditch pavers are designed to ensure the safety of operators. It provides cost savings in the long run.
Types of Ditch Finisher
Trencher: Trenchers are equipment designed to dig up the soil and create a trench. Equipment for digging trenches has digging gears. Gears are located on rotating chains. According to the scope of the project, there are different types of excavators with walk-behind and ride-on features.
Vibrating plows: Vibrating plows, which are used for splitting the soil and digging trenches, do the digging with a ploughshare. Thanks to its vibration feature, it helps to reduce the resistance on the ground. This type of plow is generally used for irrigation lines and underground cables. It is preferred for infrastructure services.
Loader type: Front loader is located between versatile ditch finisher with an excavator at the rear. The excavator part allows digging ditches. The loader part can be used for different purposes in projects.
Small Excavator: Small excavators have hydraulic arms. Thanks to its small structure, it is used in projects where maneuverability is low. It helps in digging sensitive trenches.
Usage of Ditch Finisher
Ditch finishers used in digging trenches are construction equipment with special designs. It is used to make flat and compacted trench ground. It is used for covering concrete or different materials on the surfaces of the trenches. A trencher is used to place and compact the concrete on the surface. In this way, water leakage is prevented. Ditch finisher are also designed to match the slope of the canal ground. It is possible to use the equipment in accordance with the slope of the ground.
