Cable plowing is an effective way to install conduit or direct bury cable.

The product is placed into a ‘plow chute’ of the required width and depth along an established route. To accomplish this, the conduit or cable is coiled on a reel, mounted at the front of the cable plow, and is fed into the slot created by the plow. Following installation, this plow rip is then run down, which results in very little disturbance to the surface of the site. This technology can be used in yards, along highways, or in other areas to install telephone cable, cable tv lines, and other utilities.

I was extremely impressed with the vacuum excavation truck that J&R Underground supplied for our project this spring.

In an area that is mostly rocky soil, they were able to spot utilities as deep as 8’ in a matter of minutes. In the past, some of the pot holds may have taken an hour, in many cases longer. With the ability to efficiently spot utilities ahead of the directional bore rig, with minimal labor, we will definitely finish our jobs under budget and ahead of schedule! J&R Underground supplied the machine and crew that got the job done!
