How do you dig a trench for drainage?

First, determine the type of drainage system the commercial or residential property requires (many landscapers and contractors choose the common French drain system to deal with runoff and water drainage). Using a trenching machine is the fastest way to prepare a property for drain installation. Depending on the soil and the property size, you can choose between a walk-behind trencher and a ride-on trencher to get the job done efficiently and precisely. If you want to install a channel drain in a surface like a driveway, we recommend using a ride-on tractor trencher with a higher horsepower to cut through the pavement.

Can you cut a trench in a concrete slab?

Yes, you can use a trencher to cut a trench in a concrete slab. As you browse our inventory of trenchers, choose a ride-on wheel trencher with high horsepower if you want to cut through a concrete slab. We do not recommend a walk-behind trencher for heavy-duty jobs.

How deep can a trencher go?

If you are using a walk-behind trencher, you can dig trenches up to 48 inches deep and up to 8 inches wide. If you need a deeper trench, ride-on tractor trenchers can dig trenches as deep as 63 inches and 12 inches wide. Contact United Rentals for more information on digging-depth specifications for a specific trencher.
