Taunton, Massachusetts based Street Works is the North American distributor for the T726E. The machine provides utility contractors with a quicker, easier, more cost effective and less disruptive method of opening streets for the installation of underground utilities. The T726E cuts asphalt and concrete, trenches to the required depth, pulverizes the material and backfills all in one step, minimizing traffic disruption. It eliminates transportation costs for the broken pavement that must be removed as well as the new backfill that must be brought in. For more information, visit StreetWorksUS.com.
