A Guide to Trencher Hire Rates: How Much Should You Be Paying to Hire a Trencher

When someone wants to hire a 'trencher' our next question is always, what the hell do you mean by that? That's because there are literally about 20 different machines on our system that could effectively dig a trench for you. The right machine to dig a trench, of course, depends on the width, length and depth of the trench, the materials you're digging through and your capacity to operate that machine. The question is not how long is a piece of string, it's how long is your trench!

What is a trencher?

Trenchers are like an excavator as they serve the same purpose of breaking soil and rock and removing it from the ground. However, unlike excavators trenchers can remove the soil in a continuous movement. Often used to dig trenches for pipes or cutting through rocks there are various sizes of trenches, allowing them to accommodate many different project requirements. Edwin “Ed” Malzahn invented the first compact trenching machine in 1949. From then there are two different types of trenchers: wheel trenchers - also referred to as a rock wheel trencher - and a chain belt trencher - also known as a ladder trencher. There is also the choice between a walk-behind or a ride-on trencher. Trenching is a method of digging that is conducted in a long line, especially with deep hole depth, and narrow width. It is most commonly used for the installation of permanent utility cables and pipes, especially for laying water and sewerage pipes, electrical cables and for installing drainage. However, there are many sizes of trenching machinery and equipment which can be used to accommodate different project requirements. Trenching can also be used for cutting pavements, creating drainage, shovelling and digging for electrical wires and snipping roots. Trenching tools are very effective because they are designed to replace the minimum of soil required to establish a trench to the necessary depth. Trenchers (also known as Compact Utility Loaders) are construction machines used for a variety of small to large projects, where their compact models have proven extremely useful in narrow and restrictive environments. Trenchers are very similar to excavators as both types of machinery are able to break and remove soil and rock from the ground. Unlike excavators, trenchers have the ability to remove soil in a continuous movement. These machines are often used to dig trenches for pipes and cables. There are type common types of trencher; the heavy wheel trenchers (also known as rock wheel trenches) and chain belt trenchers (also known as ladder trenchers). Trenchers should not be used to remove tree roots, as larger roots may cause trouble with the cut and cause damage to machinery.  Trenchers (also known as Compact Utility Loaders) are construction machines used for a variety of small to large projects, where their compact models have proven extremely useful in narrow and restrictive environments.
