Super Drag Boxes

About Super Drag Boxes

Drag boxes are intended to be used to provide local support to trenches as moveable ‘shields’ generally in stable or self-supporting ground conditions. They are not intended for full panel height support of trench walls, as in the case of a traditional trench box, however correct use will considerably enhance productivity and safety. It must be noted that drag boxes are very heavy pieces of equipment and certain Drag Box models permit the use of top boxes and/or rear extensions so will require large excavators to handle them safely.

  • Designed to be pulled along as the excavation progresses
  • Simple pinned strut with up to 600mm of adjustment
  • Up to 2.1m clearance below the rear strut for large diameter pipes and culverts
  • Up to 6.1m clearance between front and rear struts for maximum working space
  • Six models available from 3m to 7m long 
  • Handrails available for all size boxes
  • 3m extension available for the Super Mega Drag Box to enable lengths of 10m

*Weights are approximate and may vary with extensions used

Boxes can be stacked on top of one another to accommodate deeper trenches, although it is not advisable to stack 2 Super Mega bases due to the resulting weight accumulation. Boxes can also be joined ‘end to end’ to achieve double panel lengths.
