Narrow Trenchers

Webster Narrow Trenching

As specialists in the design and application of cutting technologies Webster Technologies are well placed to provide our proven Micro and Narrow Trenching cutting system to support more rapid and efficient construction of Fibre networks. The size and articulation of our machine is perfect for working on pavements in residential environments and the central pivot means it easily manoeuvres round bends and in restricted areas such as cul- de- sacs.

The remote controlled operation gives the operator a 360-degree view of the cutting area. This unique feature offers a significant advantage in the early identification and avoidance of any obstacles and potential hazards.

With experience of working with leading names including Fujitsu and City Fibre our team can help you deploy new techniques to bring high speed broadband to the UK faster.

What is Micro trenching?
Traditionally laying cables for utility services involves cutting a large trench in the pavement or road surface. Micro trenching is a quicker and less disruptive method and can be up to 3 times faster than conventional methods.

What is the difference between Micro and Narrow trenching?
The HAUC (Highways & Utilities Committee) specification defines Micro trenching as a slot up to a maximum width of 60mm. We recognise that our clients requirements vary and that’s one of the reasons we offer both micro and narrow trenching. Our equipment and specially designed cutting wheels can cut a slot up to a maximum width of 100mm and up to 300mm depth.

Do you only supply equipment?
No, we offer much more. Our competitive all-inclusive hire rate includes Trenching machine, cutting blades, a trained operator, fuel and a full maintenance programme. We believe this system combining high performance equipment with a skilful operator and bespoke designed wheels gives our clients a complete package and the simplicity of dealing with one supplier for all their Micro and Narrow trenching requirements.

What sort of productivity can I expect to achieve?
Depending on the area and the surface to be cut typical cutting rates can be up to 80m per hour. This level of productivity means you can maximise the number of homes passed and speed up the network construction process.
