Jack and bore continues to be the tried and true method of horizontal boring.
Simply dig a pit to the depth required, shore the walls if needed, lay the boring
machine in the pit, set up tracks, insert auger in the casing, and allow the
machine to push the auger and casing into the ground simultaneously while
the machine is turning a cutting head through the ground. The auger carries
the debris through the auger and back to the machine where the dirt and
debris is shoveled out of the pit.

There are several variables such as ground condition and grade that will
determine the difficultly of the bore. We can bore casing ranging from
6” to 36” in diameter. Length is often determined by the size of the
pipe and ground conditions.
