TrenchAxe mounts on skidsteers or tractors

Mounting Options

The Trench Axe is mountable on either a standard skidsteer plate or with an optional 3 point hitch mount. The optional 3 point hitch mount provides down pressure and angle/depth control. Kits are also available for tractors with only one set of external hydraulic connections.

TrenchAxe crumb scraper bar

No Crumbs Left Behind

The Trench Axe has a crumb scraper bar as standard equipment, this helps to scrape and sweep extra dirt and debris into the chain where it is lifted out of the trench. The heavy construction and hinged design mean that the scraper performs no matter what depth of trench you are digging.

TrenchAxe planetary gearbox

Sink Your Teeth In

The Hydraulically powered planetary gearbox provides the power to drive the teeth up to 4 feet deep, while the large drive gear prevents the chain from getting clogged. The auger keeps the dirt clear of the trench while digging but close by for easier back filling.

TrenchAxe nose assembly

Let Your Nose Run Free

Trench Axe's heavy duty nose is precision machined from a piece of solid steel. It runs freely on dual tapered roller bearings to deal with the extreme forces of trenching.

Dirt is the enemy of all bearings. A precision machined washer protects the bearings from rocks and dirt. This initial barricade is reinforced by the rubber seal on the bearings, finishing the job is the easily accessible grease fitting which keeps the bearings lubricated and protected from moisture and keeps our nose running freely.

TrenchAxe grease cylinder tensioner

Pump Up the Tension

Adjusting the chain tension with a couple of pumps. The grease cylinder tensioner allows you to adjust the tension of the chain quickly with only a grease gun. By applying grease to an internal cylinder the roller nose is pushed forward taking the slack out of the chain. What could be a long frustrating process is now a few quick pumps.
