Key features

  • Use the trenching machine more effectively with less wear due to its low-speed, high torque, splined headshaft motor.
  • Decrease trencher teeth inspection and replacement maintenance time through an optional remote attachment control that can start or stop the engine, raise or lower the trencher boom and rotate chain at a slow speed.
  • Promote high-volume spoil removal with an extra-wide 30” (76.2 cm) dirt conveyor opening that helps reduce jamming.
