Vibrating Plows for Direct Burial of Cables, Wires, Tubing 660043
The purpose of this paper is to report on experiments, tests, development, and performance of vibrating plows for direct burial of small cables, wires, and tubing. Utilities have great need for equipment that will reduce the cost of burying short service connections between the customer's house and the distribution facility. Vibrating plows help answer that need. The report lists goals in design and minimum performance requirements for vibrating service plows.
