Do you need a trench digger?

So you need to dig a trench!

You could get out a shovel and crowbar and risk breaking your back digging through tough ground all day, or you could hire a trench digger or a machine with a trencher attachment and make light work of the job. Trenchers are versatile machines and attachments that can be used to prepare foundations, dig drainage lines, dig trenches for pipes and cables or even be used for landscaping and sprinkler installation.

Tips on how to use a trencher

When you hire any equipment, you should first take time to familiarise yourself with its controls. You should also check that the land you're working on is suitable for trencher use, as the blades may get damaged by rocks, and you need to make sure you don't cut through any utility lines - contacting Dial Before You Dig on www.1100.com.au is always the safest option!

Make sure the hydraulic pump is switched off when you don't need it and that the wheels are locked and park brake is applied when you're stationary. When you reach the site you want to dig, switch on the trencher and gradually lower it to the depth you want. This can take a few minutes.

If you're using a walk-behind trencher rather than a ride-on trencher, you should walk backwards from your starting point to trench in reverse, as dirt and debris will get thrown out in front of the machine.

What can a trencher do?

Trenchers are widely used in construction, infrastructure and residential projects. These versatile pieces of equipment can be handy if you need to:

  1. Dig a drainage trench for flood prevention, sceptic system runoff, irrigation pipes or a sprinkler systems
  2. Prepare a trench for underground electrical conduits, telecommunication wires or utility pipes
  3. Remove tree roots from soil during landscaping and maintenance
