TRENCOR MECHANICAL DRIVE TRENCHERS

TRENCOR MECHANICAL DRIVE TRENCHERS

Trencor mechanical drive trenchers, like the T1460, offer a range of benefits. The most significant of these is increased torque, as more than 90 percent of the engine horsepower can be delivered to the cutting tool for increased productivity. The cutting tool tends to break out larger pieces of material due to the slow-moving digging tooth and is designed for high volume trenching.

The chain-driven head shaft is fully enclosed in an oil bath for longer life. This design has been proven to deliver lower operating costs than hydraulic pumps and motors. A sealed and lubricated track drive also provides extended life and reduces maintenance costs.

A processor-based load control system rapidly regulates the trencher and track speeds to maintain performance, and to reduce engine stalls and machine wear. All this while the machine’s high-volume hydraulic system operates tracks, conveyor, and boom lift to keep pumps and motors cooler. This makes them last longer and operate more efficiently.

In terms of safety protection, the location of the ISO rollover and crush test-certified cab provides protection from trenching hazards, and from the conveyor and trencher boom.
