Shop New and Used Trenchers, Boring Machines, and Cable Plows
Able to cut rock of up to 20,000 pounds-per-square-inch (psi) and under, trenchers are primarily used for digging trenches to lay cable, pipes, and for draining projects. Whether you are after a new or used Ditch Witch trencher for sale, a Vermeer trencher for sale, or any piece of trenching equipment, we list only the most qualified trenchers for sale that are designed to get the job finished the right way – each and every time.
Choosing The Right Size of Trenching Equipment
If your trencher is too small, then the results won’t be as efficient, and your trenching equipment will break down faster from the stress. At the same time, you don’t want to spend more on expensive equipment if you don’t have to. As a general rule, if you are digging a trench that is 100 feet or less (and under softer ground conditions), then a walk-behind trencher might be viable. However, anything deeper than 3 feet and wider than half-a-foot generally needs one of the bigger trenchers for sale.
When it comes to choosing from these trenchers for sale, more horsepower equals more weight. A heavy Ditch Witch trencher for sale will keep the boom in the ground and prevent it from shifting off course. If you need extra grip, then rubber-tired trencher (such as almost any Vermeer trencher for sale) will stay aboveground in the mud, providing extra traction when digging through tougher conditions.
Heavy Duty Trenchers for Sale
If you are going with chained trenching equipment, then single-standard chains can handle loose or damp soils, while double-standard chains can handle harder and drier soil. For the most stubborn soil types, half-rock and frost chains can be added to overcome frozen or rocky dig sites.
