Pneumatic piercing tools are commonly used for the trenchless installation of underground water lines, utility piping, sewer lateral lines, sprinkler lines, electrical lines, telephone lines, cable television lines, sewer conduits and utilities without the need for opening a typical trench or excavation. Piercing tools are routinely used for compaction boring under landscaping, sidewalks, driveways and roadways.
