"Wall Chaser" in German

Hi
We are putting in a new kitchen and to save money are doing the new channels for the electric cables ourselves. The offer of a machine fell through for today and not sure when it will be available so are looking at renting or buying one ourselves.
So I know what we want is a wall chaser but have no idea what this is in German - sure it is not a direct translation

any ideas??
thanks
Caz

More terms: Mauernutfräse (actually this is the most correct one), and (in Switzerland very often) Schlitzmaschine.
