GSSI drill hole feature for StructureScan Mini XT
Geophysical Survey Systems Inc. (GSSI) added a new drill hole feature to the StructureScan Mini XT — the all-in-one concrete inspection ground-penetrating radar system. The drill hole feature is a 3D data processing detection algorithm. The algorithm evaluates a user-chosen cylindrical area that represents a potential or planned coring location. It scans and looks for targets that may interfere with a proposed coring location. The drill hole indicator is designed for concrete coring applications, and in slab situations, the drill hole feature can help determine the safest location for coring concrete. 800-524-3011;

Ditch Witch HT275 heavy-duty trencher
The HT275 heavy-duty trencher from Ditch Witch has a Cummins 275 hp T4 engine and a hydrostatic trencher-chain drive with a variable displacement motor, allowing operators to match chain speeds to soil conditions. The trencher can do installations up to 10 feet deep and 26 inches wide, and it has four hydraulic quick-disconnect blocks that reduce the time it takes to change attachments. The suspension mounts to the center of each track frame, providing the ability to float each track independently, taking stress off the main frame. 800-654-6481;
