Delivering performance and value for money to MJ Abbott 

MJ Abbott has added the first BRON Offsetting Add-On Vibratory Utility Plow to be sold into the UK to its fleet of dozers thanks to Mastenbroek's engineering expertise.

Mastenbroek and MJ Abbott's relationship stretches back several years, so when Adrian Riggs, Contracts Director needed to source a large vibratory plow for installing cross-country water mains and electric power cables, he approached the Boston-based trencher manufacturers.

Mastenbroek's engineers proposed purchasing a BRON V-100 add-on vibratory utility plow, which was matched to a CAT D6T dozer within the MJ Abbott machine fleet, as this offered the best combination of value for money and performance. 

MJ Abbotts' fleet does include smaller vibratory plows, but the BRON Offsetting Add-On Vibratory Utility Plow is more robust, offering a vibratory plow shank for tougher ground, full offsetting, a 75mm internal width cable chute for instals at up to 1.5m deep, an integral hopper for simultaneously installing sand or gravel backfill and a feed tube for installing a warning tape above the pipe or cable.

"The BRON add-on plow can be matched to either a new or pre-owned dozer, so it is a competitive option for use in the UK's growing number of electric cable distribution network projects," says Christopher Pett, Commercial Director at Mastenbroek. "The BRON add-on plow also complements our range of utility trenchers, and with MJ Abbott already owning a Mastenbroek 15/15 drainage trencher with sports field conveyor system and two GT8 gravel trailers, adding the BRON add-on plow to its fleet is the perfect complement."

A multidisciplinary company, MJ Abbott offers a range of services across various markets, including civil engineering works, golf construction and renovation, sports turf construction and renovation, drainage and irrigation systems, environment shaping, and drainage and water management.

Established in 1977, Mastenbroek is at the forefront of trenching technology, offering a range of machines for agricultural drainage and utility infrastructure projects. Mastenbroek's machines offer exceptional performance, enviable fuel efficiency, durable components and minimal downtime due to the company’s comprehensive after-sales support.
