Pneumatic trench diggers, like the ones listed above, are used for more precise, concentrated trenching, allowing the operator to either preserve or sever roots. Before operating a trench digger, it is important to consider root, pipe and irrigation line placement of your particular worksite.
Air diggers deploy compressed air to break, excavate and displace the existing soil. Pneumatic air diggers are connected to an air compressor and are hand-held for operator ease. Need more help? Contact one of our equipment experts for further guidance.
