We were not disappointed; they have been very responsive to our needs and creative in ways to help us serve our customers. We have no hesitation in recommending or using Michael Byrne products as we continue to expand our operations.”

“Cornerstone Boring has been working with Michael Byrne Mfg on several of our auger boring projects including some very difficult materials and obstacles. The two that come to mind are both 42inch bores. The first 42” bore was a very shallow cover bore of approximately 240 feet that had 24 inches of cover, we utilized the Michael Byrne Swivel head in conjunction with our Akkerman Guided bore machine to achieve a dead nuts on line bore without disrupting the on ramp and roadway we were boring under. The second bore was a difficult layered rock that was not working well with a Robbins type disc cutter head, we piloted again with a tri-hawk Akkerman rock head, MBM made a custom double row rock head with a extended nose to fit the pilot, the nose iece was hard faced for durability. The double row rock head was the trick as completed the bore with excellent production rates compared to the previous disc cutter method, we glad MBM came up with a workable solution for this most difficult boring condition.”
