Our trenching equipment enables us to dig a 6" wide trench up to 3 feet deep. When multiple utilities are being installed or you need to visually inspect and ensure level, this equipment is less disruptive and much quicker than backhoes.
The trencher operates like a large chainsaw. The ability to dig and excavate an area with minimal damage means that it takes less time to excavate and less time to clean up. Less time means less expensive. Almost any utility, pipe or wire will fit in a 6" trench. A backhoe can't efficiently excavate a narrow line like that. It digs a line that is normally far larger than what is required. Not only does that cause more damage, but it takes longer to dig and longer to replace the soil once complete.
How quickly can we trench? Depending on soil conditions, we could trench about 25 feet per minute.
