Trenchless Technology supremo, TRACTO UK, recently celebrated a four-decade milestone in business with a two-day Open Day at the company’s demonstration site in the heart of Bedford. On a sweltering Wednesday in mid-June customers, suppliers and prospects were invited to peruse a display of equipment, including live demonstrations of compact machines from pits dug in the ground which replicated real applications. Pete Atkins, Chief Demonstrator, first showcased GRUNDOSTEER technology to the assembled crowds. Ideal for short under crossings – such as roads and rivers – Pete demonstrated the ‘steerable mole’ rod pusher concept for quick and easy trenchless connections.

More than 3.200 exhibitors and almost half a million visitors from all over the world: bauma has lost none of its appeal and also impressively reflects the performance and innovative power of the construction machinery industry in 2022. This was also true for TRACTO’s future technology. Entirely in line with the bauma 2022 leading topics „Construction methods and materials of tomorrow” and “Zero emissions in the construction machinery sector”, the solutions for trenchless pipe constructions under the motto “We are building the future”, were truly in great demand. In addition to classic products, such as the GRUNDOMAT soil displacement hammer, this included some much-acclaimed new developments, which make the already very gentle trenchless construction method even lower in emissions and more efficient – for example, an extremely powerful HDD rock drilling bore rig or electric drive units for various NODIG systems.
