Economical trenching in rock


Prior to the construction of a large factory and warehouse, a KEMROC EKT 100 milling machine on a 25-tonne excavator is used to excavate trenches and pits for strip and individual footings.

At an industrial park at its hometown, Haiger in the German state of Hesse, the construction company Wirth secured a major contract. Before construction of a new factory and warehouse could start, they had to prepare the site and install foundations. A 25-tonne excavator with a KEMROC EKT 100 milling attachment was used to work out the footings through solid and fissured rock – saving time and money compared to the use of hammer and bucket.
