This trencher was specifically designed for the installation of Fiber Optic and Coaxial Cable for the Broadband Industry. It is the only trencher that discharges the trenched material direct onto tarps on either side of the machine for easy clean-up. Our patented floating cutting blade is designed to cut up and over underground obstructions like rocks and large tree roots, which saves on high trencher blade maintenance costs. The trenching teeth cut up to 2.5" wide on each pass. Our cable blade can cut a 1" wide trench. The depth is adjustable from 0" to 12" deep depending on the model chosen. The specially designed trencher teeth are made of replaceable carbide bits and in rocky areas you can specify "Shark Teeth". The patented front cutting wheel can cut a radius of 9 inches. The unit is only 26 iches wide so it can install cabling in very tight areas without compacting soils or damaging lawns and planting beds. In addition this trencher can excavate for irrigation, brick edging, landscape retaining walls, drain tile, silt fence, low voltage lighting cable, water lines and root pruning.
