More About Trenchers in Houston, Texas

What is a landscape trencher?

A landscape trencher is typically a smaller model of walk-behind trencher, around 5 horsepower for use on garden or lawn projects. These projects can include digging around flower beds for fencing and shaping around trees and lawns. Landscape trenchers are heavier duty than edgers or trimmers so that they can handle roots, rocks and other obstacles. You can use landscape trenchers for DIY tasks or light-duty commercial applications

What is a trencher used for?

Trenchers are ergonomic, efficient digging equipment. Trenchers have a rotating chainsaw-like chain with auger teeth or scoop buckets to break up soils and remove large amounts of material from a narrow area, creating a trench. Trenchers can be used for digging trenches for utilities or long lines of fencing and shaping garden beds. They are a versatile tool for landscaping, construction sites and other commercial applications. United Rentals carries trenchers of all sizes for your small or sizable trenching job

How deep can a trencher go?

Smaller landscape trenchers can dig up to 12 inches deep and heavy-duty walk-behind trenchers can dig up to 48 inches. Ride-on trenchers can dig up to 5 feet or more and dig the trench faster. If you need to dig deeper than 48 inches, you should rent a ride-on trencher for the job. Digging depth can vary depending on the size of the trencher. United Rentals specialists can help ensure you choose the right trencher for the job
