- Model R.W.T 100 S - Rotary Wheel Trencher Machine



Trenches, laser grades, lays pipe & backfills all in one pass with minimal mess. This is a whole new era in sportsfield trenching “systems technology”. 1 metre maximum depth enables the pulling of much longer grades than is possible with competitor’s machines.

Operating Weight: 4.0 Tonnes

Trenching depth: 1000mm (max).

Work rate: 60 – 600m/hr.

Trenching width: 95mm, 135mm, 175mm

A robustly engineered mechanical drive train ensures a dependable service life allowing contractors to keep on schedule.

“Tungsten Carbide” mining tips are extremely durable with low wear parts per metre costs, but easily replaced when eventually the need arises.
