#16 Construction Equipment: Trencher

Description:  This machine is used to build the civil engineering infrastructure on which society dependents.  It is called a trencher, or in some circles, the ground or soil chainsaw. One use of a trencher is to bury pipes or cables.  Trenchers are good at excavating long and narrow openings in the earth which pipes and cables are then laid in to deliver the water, gas, electricity, and other resources needed by the recipients of the cable or pipe from the distribution grid.
