For laying fibre optic cables – the powerful and robust GM 1 all-wheel drive trenchers from LIBA.
Laying fibre optic cables – When laying underground cables, such as fibre optic cables, or digging trenches for irrigation systems or drainage, LIBA trench cutters have proven to be the ideal tools for laying fibre optic cables in civil engineering or pipeline construction.
LIBA trench cutters become indispensable helpers due to special factors, which are fully convincing. These are mainly criteria such as an extremely reliable construction, an easy to operate control unit as well as their all-terrain and robust crawler drive.
The handy and robust GM 1 all-wheel drive is easy to handle, as it has clear operating devices that make it very easy to get to grips with. In fact, for LIBA trenching machines for laying fibre optic cables there is in principle no other option.
Laying fibre optic cables in civil engineering
A suitable device is without question an important criterion for the professional pulling of trenches for the laying of fibre optic cables. However, attention must also be paid to accurate preparation of the work to be done.
For LIBA trenching machines it is a piece of cake to cut straight and clean trenches for the laying of fibre optic cables into the ground at any time, because they do their job without jerking at all with their smooth drive. The cutters can always be used at maximum power, regardless of the consistency of the ground.
Sometimes the milling work is affected by wet clay, stones or scree. The trenching machines for laying fibre optic cables think along with the operator in such a situation by changing the direction of the chain run briefly from forward to reverse. Afterwards the work can be continued without any problems.
All the cutters have a relatively low centre of gravity throughout, which ensures a safe stand even on uneven terrain. Every now and then a root hides in the ground or a tree stump is in the way. But even such obstacles do not really stop the laying of fibre optic cables. In order to ensure an effortless passage here, the stable milling unit is equipped with a sufficiently large ground clearance.

GM 1 all-wheel drive trenching machines are equipped with a powerful diesel engine and perform their work as self-propelled all-wheel drive trenching machines. Moreover, thanks to their low weight, there is little stress on the ground.
It is extremely rare for a terrain to be completely level. For this reason, the tiller has a tilt device that makes it easy to compensate for a lateral slope of up to 15 degrees. The excavated earth is ejected either to the right or left. It goes without saying that the operating platform of the trenchers can be swivelled. The conveyor belt can be mounted on both sides. This allows the excavated earth to be transported away immediately.
The milling and subsequent filling of gravel with the extra filling hopper is carried out in a single operation. The extent to which the GM 1 all-wheel trenchers are true all-rounders is also demonstrated by the fact that, thanks to other helpful accessories, they allow cables and pipes to be pulled in immediately after the trench has been excavated. Of course, there is also the option of fitting twin tyres on all all all-wheel drive trenchers if required.
But what about exceptionally hard ground? Is it possible to dig trenches in such a case without any major problems? In short: “Yes, it is possible! For the self-propelled machine this is definitely no obstacle. For professional cable laying LIBA trenching machines prove to be extremely useful helpers, which always do their job faithfully.
Laying fibre optic cables in civil engineering – optimum efficiency with minimum disturbance
Trench cutters are the environmentally friendly alternative to excavators, as they ensure the best possible workload for cable laying without causing serious damage in terms of nature conservation.
There are various versions of cable laying, on which the focus must be placed during construction work in each case. A carefully thought-out project definitely includes the professional construction of cable trenches.
Laying fibre optic cable – What counts?
A decisive factor is also that both any possible nuisance and the environmental impact of excavating the subsoil are reduced to an absolute minimum. We will be happy to provide you with the relevant documentation on request at any time if you would like more details about our trenching machines.
To cut continuously straight and clean trenches for the laying of fibre optic cables in the ground; this is the challenge that LIBA trenching machines with their smooth and even drive have to meet again and again.
Whether the soil is soft or hard is irrelevant, because the milling machines can cope with any type of ground, even at maximum performance.
The trench cutters for laying fibre optic cables think along with the operator in such a situation by changing the direction of the chain run briefly from forward to reverse.

Self-propelled trench cutters
When it comes to speed and economy, there is basically no way around our trench cutters when it comes to making trenches at various depths.
If absolute precision and a high degree of efficiency are expected, the GM 160 AS trench cutter with auger is a must. The GM 160 AS trencher is usually used as a mounted trencher for Unimog.
Special milling machines
If a particularly deep trench needs to be cut, our deep milling machine can handle this task with a working depth of 180 cm, which is attached to the tractor’s three-point hitch.
Trench cutting for glass fibre laying
If trenches are to be created cleanly, absolute precision is essential. You do not know which machine is the right one for you? We will be pleased to support you in your selection with our expertise and many years of experience.

Since 1964 trench cutters are manufactured and sold in the factory of “LIBA-Lingener Baumaschinen” under the name “Grabenmeister”.
In a small production hall there were the beginnings of the production of trench cutters, which were already sold worldwide at that time and have proved their worth to the customers for a long time. Continuous development in adaptation to current practical requirements and advanced technology are the basis of our good reputation.
Our trench cutters “Grabenmeister” can be purchased as self-propelled, excavator-mounted or tractor-mounted cutters and can be used in the following areas in addition to the laying of fibre optic cables:
- Sports ground construction
- Sports field drainage
- Golf course drainage
- Civil engineering
- Cable construction
- Lightning protection
- Track construction
- Glass fibre construction
