SBU-A Spec Sheet
The Small Boring Unit (SBU-A) is a proven solution for medium to hard rock utility installations up to 150 m in length. The SBU-A can be used with any conventional auger boring machine (ABM) from 0.6 to 1.8 m in diameter and utilizes a full-face auger for spoils removal. Before excavation, the SBU-A is welded to the lead casing. A full-face auger is added to the casing and the assembly is lowered onto the ABM track. In hard rock, the circular cutterhead is tted with disc cutters, while in mixed ground a combination of ripper teeth, drag, bits, and disc cutters are used.
