Drag Box

An edge-supported trench lining system, a transportable ‘shield’

The Conquip Drag Box is a simple to assemble, edge-supported trench lining system intended to be used by an excavator using the excavate and drag technique.

It is designed to provide local support for trenches as transportable ‘shields’ generally in stable or self-supporting ground conditions. The Conquip Drag Box is normally selected for installing utility pipes in non-urban environments where increased laying rate is required and ground movements are not critical.
