To complicate the matter in this area, the villas and the private houses are separated by paths 2 meters wide, there is barely room to move. So the machines to use needed to be compact and precise.
A daunting task for the contractor, they needed to identify the way to go along the roads, dig 2.2 meters dip and lay the new water pipes without inconvenience the residents.
To do a major work in a residential area is a complex operation. Worsen, in this case, by the lack of space. Not to mention, also, the imperative need to operate in respect of the residents security.

So this is how it is done: a compact excavator that can move through the small pathways between houses and private gardens. The MB Crusher drum cutter MB-R500 that can grind with precision and fast the limestone, despite the presence of existing pipes.
