Trench Grinder Saves $$$ for Keyspan Energy
A recent 2,700-foot project for Keyspan Energy in Staten Island NY provides an example of the amount of savings that our machine makes possible. The Street Trencher, traveling at a rate of eight feet per minute through four inches of asphalt and 10 inches of concrete was able to save over $18,000.00 in construction costs. These costs were based on time and labor savings in addition to reducing the number of truckloads required to cart the excavated paving material away.
The ground-up materials mean significantly fewer voids, which in turn, translate into more efficient handling of the material and of course fewer truckloads needed. Additional projects with Keyspan have shown similar cost savings to the point where the Street Trencher is becoming a preferred method with certain projects. Keyspan has also acknowledged that the Street Trencher also produces considerably less pavement impact and vibration, which minimizes the risk of damage to nearby utilities.
