Trenchers for Hire

Chain trenchers are the quick, efficient and tidy solution to all trenching needs. If you need to lay power supplies, water pipes, fibre optics, drainage pipe, irrigation systems, hedges, deer or rabbit fencing, then the answer is one of our chain trenchers.

When it comes to trenching, why use a slow, cumbersome and messy excavator, when you could be using a quick, low footprint and easy to manoeuvre trencher.


Here at Trencher Hire Ltd we love Walk-Behind Trenchers, as they are fast, powerful, simple to operate, and easy to steer.

All of our units are available as self drive or with an operator.

Trencher features include:

  • Heavy-duty frames

  • Components that stand up to the toughest site conditions

  • Chains, teeth and sprockets that are specially designed to work together to provide exceptional productivity

  • Last longer than any other digging system

  • High quality engines

  • All-hydraulic steering increases manoeuvrability and reduces operator fatigue

  • All controls including engine throttle, chain engagement, and boom lift—are grouped conveniently at the operator’s station

All of our trenchers have tracks instead of wheels. Simplicity instead of complexity, combined with an easy-to-use control system - provide manoeuvrability, all while offering operational performance.

Our digging systems feature the industry’s longest-lasting cupped digging tooth, DuraTooth™, which improves productivity and reduces downtime. Outboard bearing support stabilizes and supports the head shaft and auger, for reliable productivity trench after trench. Auger drive system eliminates need for sheer bolts on the auger and simplifies changing sprockets and digging chains. Our all track systems increase stability over uneven and rough terrain and reduce downward pressure when trenching.
