Kwik-Trench Mini Trencher

The Fastest Mini-Trencher on the Market

Are you looking for the best mini-trencher? For over 50 years, the Kwik-Trench mini-trencher has met the shallow trenching needs of rental stores, contractors and golf course superintendents. Thanks to its simple, push-forward design, the Kwik-Trench Earth Saw has proven itself as the fastest, easiest to use, and most economical mini-trencher on the market today. The Kwik-Trench’s compact size lets you get into areas inaccessible to full-size trenchers. And once at the jobsite, you’ll achieve cutting speeds of up to 30′ per minute.  A manual crank on belt-driven models infinitely controls your cutting depth (up to 12″ on model KT 2400) while a locking swivel wheel lets you cut straight trenches.

Clean narrow trenches

Not only does the Kwik-Trench cut your trenching time, but it also cuts your backfill time. By making clean, narrow trenches and neatly depositing the soil right next to the trench, both backfill and cleanup time are minimized. And while they’re not self-propelled, all Kwik-Trench earth saws feature pneumatic tires, so you won’t spend extra time repairing damaged turf caused by tracked machines or skid-steer loaders.
