Typical Applications for Skidding:

Utility carrier installation is a common job that requires skidding and the use of jack and bore to lay the utility lines.


In projects that have used open excavation or trenching to place casing, skidding is used to pull or push the utility carrier lines into place using a jack and bore machine. Carrier lines are assembled and casing spacers are attached prior to installation. Some projects may require the final welding of casing sections before utilities are installed. These kinds of jack and bore jobs are efficient and cost effective when skidding is needed for the underground construction of utility line placement.


Most carrier lines can be installed up to lengths of 800’.
