  • Unique drive system positioning
    Drive System positioning allows for more usable horse power, providing greater efficiency for serious trenching. The EATON motor is housed above the spoil, protecting from rocks and debris.

  • Remove Spoil From Both Sides
    Twin Spoil Augers remove finely crumbled spoil to both sides of the trench for a cleaner finish. Both augers can be detached when needed for close-up trenching to walls or fences.

  • Heavy duty crumbing system
    Start trenching with the crumber in-ground. A super heavy duty spring ensures the crumber stays engaged with the bottom of the trench for maximum spoil removal from start to finish.

  • Trench in all ground conditions
    Available in a number of different tooth configurations for trenching in soft ground, mixed grounds and even permafrost so you can get the job done no matter what environment you are in.

  • Trench faster & safer with a high visibility grill
    A High Visibility Grill lets the operator see what thery are doing regardless of the trencher’s angle, helping them to work faster and safer.

  • Advanced design for minimal ground disturbance
    Advanced design creates finely crumbed spoil for effective re-compaction and minimal ground disturbance.

  • Anti-back flex chain design
    You can be guaranteed of quality and superior performance with our Anti-back Flex design. It prevents the chain links from flexing back in tough soil conditions.
