Core drill attachment for vacuum excavators
McLaughlin has designed a core drill attachment for use with its 500-, 800- and 1,200-gallon (1892.7, 3028.3 and 4542.5 L) vacuum excavators. The optional core drill provides utility contractors the ability to use vacuum excavation technology in locating existing underground utilities beneath hard surfaces such as asphalt and concrete. Less equipment and less setup makes the job more efficient for contractors, while minimally impacting the surrounding area.
The McLaughlin Mini Core Drill is capable of cutting holes at 6-, 8- and 10-inch diameters (15.2 to 25.4 cm). The drill cuts a uniform hole into pavement or asphalt, minimally impacting the surface structure. Once the vacuum excavation process has been completed and utility located, backfill material is used for reinstatement, the fill material is compacted, and the core is grouted back in place, leaving the road surface with minimal disruption. The McLaughlin Mini Core Drill is available only on new models of the following vacuum excavators: V500LE-HD, V500HD, V800HD and V1200/V1200HD.
