Micro Trenching is one of the installation methods being utilized by contractors to bring fiber networks to consumers. Micro Trenching is an installation method in which a narrow and relatively shallow trench is cut, usually on an asphalt roadway. Trench dimensions can range from .75 to 2.24 inches wide and 8 to 16 inches deep. While cutting, a vacuum system connected to the cutter wheel cleanly diverts and transports debris away from the worksite. Once the conduit is laid, the trench is backfilled with a grout compound. Advantages of Micro Trenching include minimal cutting width that boosts installation production, reduce costs of backfill, shallow depth placement which helps avoid encounters with existing utilities and jobsite cleanliness thanks to the vacuum spoil that removes debris.

Featuring reduced operating noise levels, an all-hydraulic rear door and an overall operator experience that is safer and more user-friendly, Vac-Tron has introduced its new Low Profile 33 Series. The rear door features hydraulics that eliminate the need for external manual safety locks. It opens fully so the operator can completely empty the contents and clean it out more easily. For operator safety, the door is controlled by push buttons located on the side of the unit. “The quieter operation of the LP 33 is notable,” said Brian Showley, Vice President of Sales at Vac-Tron. “We occasionally hear of contractors getting shut down prematurely at job sites due to noise in densely populated areas. This adds to project delays and overall costs simply because their equipment was too noisy. The LP 33 Series solves that challenge.” Similar to previous generations of our LP Series, the 33 Series has all the power to remove a variety of wet and dry materials. Some applications include: storm drain clean-out, underground utility locating, treatment plant cleanup, retention pond clean-out, lateral line clean-out, excavation of small rocks and dry sand, mud removal, manhole cleanout, water meter box clean-out, water valve clean-out, car wash clean-up, and emergency road spills.
