Do you need a licence to operate a trencher?

Operating a trencher takes skill and experience, but not a licence. Now that’s a top level answer, but if you’re seriously looking to operate a trencher, whether it's a tracked trencher, ride on trencher or walk behind trencher, you need to undergo training before you start working.If you’re a private citizen looking to dry hire a trencher - not a business - the training you need to undergo is normally more casual, but at the same time you are more likely to hire a smaller machine like a walk behind trencher. The training you generally receive would be a quick demonstration from the trencher hire company. Keep in mind though some hire companies will refuse to dry hire to inexperienced operators, which is why it’s always a good idea to wet hire.To be able to operate a trencher on a work site, you need to be able to prove your competence on the machine, especially on the bigger tracked trenchers. Below we discuss the various factors that contribute to approving a trencher operator to work on site.

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.
