The laying plough draws a narrow slot in the ground in a single step with the aid of a cable winch. At the same time, one or more cables/pipes can be safety laid on the smoothed base of the slot.
Depending on the number and size, the cable drums are also carried along on the plough. After the laying process, the narrow slot closes almost by itself and provides long-lasting protection for the cable or pipe, see above.
Cables and pipes belong underground
The landscape needs to be protected as well as the material to be laid. Once the FOECK laying plough, also called a cable plough or SpiderPlow, has finished its work, only a specialist is able to tell what working procedure has been carried out here. With hardly any restoration work, it is not possible to tell what work has been done on the laying section at a depth of up to 2.5 m in the ground in an incredibly short space of time. In addition to its manoeuvrability, the plough also impresses with its cross-country mobility. With its wheel arms which can be adjusted on all sides, it can adjust its wheels vertically so that it can plough slopes upright up to 45 degrees, the wheel arms can also be adjusted horizontally up to 6.50 m. This allows it to travel over ditches, pits and so on. With the laying plough, a turning radius of up to 4 m can be realised (see image to the right). It can be used practically everywhere, on slopes, in forests, close to trees, bushes and hedges, on escarpment, behind and across crash barriers, next to tarred road surfaces, through streams and rivers as well as on wetlands through marshland areas.
