I have the TDF series track." - Scott Robinson (Takeuchi TL 150 compact track loader);                                                                                           "Your Protrac rubber have saved me thousands of dollars! I rented a track machine for one month prior to having your tracks, that rental cost would have covered the cost of the McLarens. I was expecting to have bought a new machine, but there has been no reason to as the OTTs have added lift capacity, stability, a softer ride, and of course traction beyond my wildest expectations. My machine rep is not happy with your product, no sale for him... Could not be happier, literally!" - Simon Huxtable (Bobcat 763 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The up front cost is greater than others but quality and performance far outweigh the cost." - Bearden Services (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The sales rep that handled my purchase was knowledgeable, polite, and knew his product...

The Advantages of Owning a Skid Steer Trencher Attachment

The Advantages of Owning a Skid Steer Trencher Attachment

When it comes to trenching work, you want to ensure that you have the best possible equipment for the job. Backhoes, mini excavators with bucket, and designated trenchers have long been the go-tos, capable of digging trenches over 12’’ wide, but it’s important to know there are other products out there that are better for smaller jobs. Skid steer trencher attachments connect directly to your skid steer machine, drawing on its power to give you the clean, controlled results you need for your application. They’re also great for digging trenches between four and 12’’ wide. But that’s not all; here are some additional advantages of owning a skid steer trencher attachment.

Increased Trenching Efficiency

For one, skid steer trenchers are much more efficient when it comes to completing jobs. With several different chain combinations to utilize, you can dig into even the hardest types of ground with ease. One of these chains include a six-inch combination model made with steel and tungsten teeth, will handle most ground types. There are also other chains in varying sizes and durability levels to match your needs. So whether you’re working with soft, mixed, rocky, or permafrost ground, you can still get your trenching work done quickly. Additionally, trenchers work in one continuous movement, saving much more time on a given project than a less accommodating, harder-to-control backhoe.

Consistent Trench Size and Depth

Trencher attachments also provide much more consistent results when it comes to trenching size and depth. These products have adjustable depth capabilities and several different settings for you to utilize during a project. Because of this, you have not only more application options but also much more control over the results that your skid steer attachment produces. Once adjusted, these products continuously trench at that same depth, allowing for evenness and maximizing the success of your application. Backhoes and mini excavators with their bucket attachments aren’t as consistent, since they work in a scooping motion rather than in a straight line.

Less Manual Labor and Cut Costs

Another factor to note is that skid steer trenchers require less physical labor to operate. You can trench with only one operator in the skid steer cabin rather than a team of professionals. This can save you time and money on manpower and reduce the risk of injury during these potentially dangerous jobs.

In addition, skid steer trenching attachments are also more cost effective. In fact, they cost much less upfront than a dedicated trencher machine, and they can last significantly longer.

Diverse Trenching Application

The diversity of these components is an important advantage of owning a skid steer trencher attachment as well. Due to their adjustable settings, hydraulic power, and control capabilities, they can benefit applications in several industries. Some examples include the foundation work, drainage, irrigation, laying electrical cable, gas and water piping. Wherever you need to create a trench, these attachments can accommodate, so you won’t need to change machinery during your trenching work ever again.
