The new Kwik-Trench mini-trencher from Little Beaver is designed for use in a multitude of projects — including landscape edging and root pruning, as well as installations of plumbing and drainage lines, low-voltage wiring, silt fences, and sprinkler systems. Kwik-Trench is offered in two models, the KT200B and KT2400B, and both are able to trench up to 30′ per minute. Featuring carbide-tipped teeth and a powerful drive system, the mini-trencher is able to cut through tough surfaces such as compacted clay, road fill, asphalt, and tree roots up to 10″ thick. Each of these push-forward models are used to create clean, narrow trenches. Featuring a triple V-belt drive system, the Kwik-Trench achieves rotation speed up to 800 rpm. Precise cutting depth is achieved with a manual crank, while each trencher’s locking swivel wheel guides the unit to ensure straight trenches. The Kwik-Trench is designed to minimize backfill and cleanup time by depositing soil beside the trench.
