Jack and Bore

Midwestern Electric, Inc also provides Horizontal Auger Bore services know as Jack and Bore. Jack and Bore is an established method when installing steel pipes or casing under roads or railways. As with horizontal directional drilling, auger boring is a useful option when trying to cause minimal disruption to traffic.

The jack and bore method has always been one of the most economical and reliable ways to bore under objects such as established highways and railroads. The Jack and Bore makes this task much simpler, while reducing labor costs and increasing productivity. Generally, jack and bore or auger boring is accomplished with an auger boring machine by jacking a casing pipe through the earth while at the same time removing earth spoil from the casing by means of rotating auger inside the casing.
