English term or phrase: crumb shoe
OSHA Compliance Officer (CO) XXX testified that he began his inspection of YYYYY work site on April 23, 1999 (Tr. 20, 40). XXXX ascertained that, at the time of the accident, a five man crew consisting of two equipment operators, "Dave" and John , and three laborers, Victor , Rose , and Candido "Andy" Edu, was excavating a trench into which "sacrificial" anodes would be placed (Tr. 43, 121, 125). The anode bars, which are intended to inhibit corrosion of a nearby fuel pipeline, are placed in forms that are then filled with bentonite and sealed with clay (Tr. 278). A high speed trencher is employed to dig the trench (Tr. 67; Exh. C-3). The trencher crawls along the trench while a boom with a saw-toothed rotating blade cuts through the earth (Tr. 67; Exh. C-3). A "crumb shoe" covers the rotating blade; the crumb shoe acts as a guard for the chain/ blade and also "sucks the dirt up" (Tr. 246, 260-61). The laborers shovel away dirt that accumulates on the edge of the trench behind the trencher, so that it does not contaminate the ditch (Tr. 147, 279-80, 285).
