There are a lot of different ways to dig a trench with a ride-on utility tractor. These attachment-carrying tractors can be changed from a vibratory plow, rockwheel or microtrencher to a chain trencher. You also have the option of a center-mount, sliding-offset or sliding-offset with conveyor chain trencher on some models.
For even more jobsite versatility, the front can be outfitted with a backfill blade, backhoe attachment or reel carrier.
Each trenching attachment is purpose-built to maximize contractors’ productivity based on ground conditions, trench depth and width, as well as what utility or product being installed in the ground. “Trencher attachments increase the versatility of the machine and give contractors the ability to choose the most efficient way of getting their job done”
Understanding the uses and advantages of all the different trenching attachments will help you plan jobs better, and should be part of your considerations when adding a new tractor to the fleet since many attachments are only available on larger, more powerful utility tractors.
With the right rear attachment selected for the job, it’s time to turn your attention to the front of the tractor. “Front attachments add flexibility on the job, These attachments are designed to help the operator get more done without having to bring in another machine.”
