The Steiner Saw Machine
This tractor and saw machine is custom-built to drop a 12 gauge wire 5-7 inches below ground! Average installations aim for 1 1/2 – 3 inches below groundwith the average shovel or garden tool able to reach 2 to 3 inches with little problem, causing wire breakage. We saw this 20 years ago and built the saw machine attachment for our tractor. Designed for easy burial while moving through small rocks and roots rather than going over them, the saw machine attachment is ideal for less rocky soil. We designed the attachment to be able to bury wire within a few inches of fences and other barriers where other installers can’t get. The blade opens the soil, the burying mechanism installs the wire, and the large turf tires close the cut in the grass after the wire gets buried, leaving very little trace of the installation. Many of our installations can be accomplished with this machine, but when other circumstances require different methods, we have developed machines for each situation.
