Ride-On Trencher rentals

Considerations when renting or leasing a ride-on trencher
The first consideration in trencher rental or lease through the KWIPPED supplier network is the material you are digging into to create your trench.  The digging chain should be of appropriate sharpness and size.  Also consider how deep of a trench you need and the level of maneuverability for the size of your jobsite.  You may also decide to rent or lease attachments to make your job easier.

Features of ride-on trenchers

Ride-on trenchers will have an operator’s chair with access to a steering wheel, joystick controls for the trencher and other attachments, and status monitors.  All trenchers will have a blade, most commonly with a digging chain.  Most models also come with a backfill blade.  A few examples of other attachment options are the following: backhoe, earth saw, vibratory plow, and micro trencher.  Micro trenchers look like a circular saw blade; the word micro describes the trench size being dug, not necessarily the trencher itself.  Micro trenchers are used to cut asphalt and bury fiber optic cables.  Often trenchers will have a boom arm opposite the trencher to operate a bucket attachment.  

How ride-on trenchers work

The tooth-covered chain rotates around the trench blade as the operator lowers the blade to the ground.  The teeth dig into the dirt, clay, sand, rock, or other material creating a trench.  Average trenchers are capable of digging trenches up to 5ft deep and 6”-12” wide.  Different digging chains are available to suit the material you are digging into at your jobsite.

About ride-on trenchers

Ride-on trenchers are used to dig narrow ditches, called trenches, in the ground.  They are most frequently used to bury utility cables and pipes.  A long, narrow attachment extends from either the front or rear of the tractor.  This is surrounded with a tooth-covered chain similar to a chainsaw.
