Skid steer trenchers are attachments that are designed to create narrow, long excavations in a variety of soils in both rural and urban environments. They are efficient and affordable and have several uses.

Trenchers can handle a variety of tasks including:

Drainage: Rather than dig up several feet of soil, trenchers can create drainage areas for water runoff and sewage to allow irrigation piping to be installed underground.

Pavement Cutting: Wheel trenchers can easily cut through concrete, rock and pavement. They can also handle joint replacement and patching projects in construction work.

Shoveling: A small walk-behind trencher lets users dig three to four feet to minimize time and effort compared to traditional shoveling tasks.

Digging for Electrical Wires and Cables: When wires and cables beneath the soil need to be reached, chain trenchers can be used with a pole to the house. They’re also great for digging holes and connecting electrical fencing and landscape lighting.

Snipping Roots: Trenchers have a blade that has the ability to serve as a rotary mower blade and can cut roots. Just hold the blade chain of the trencher in place and inch forward as you cut roots.
