A trencher is a piece of construction equipment used to dig trenches, especially for laying pipes or electrical cables, for installing drainage, or in preparation for trench warfare. Trenchers may range in size from walk-behind models, to attachments for a skid loader or tractor, to very heavy tracked heavy equipment.

Heavy Duty Trenching Machine (TM-1005H) for Cable Digging (Designed By: CAD CAM Gateway)

Working and Basic Structure:

This chain trencher digs a trench with a digging chain or belt that is driven around a rounded metal frame, or boom. It resembles a giant chainsaw. This type of trencher can cut 6 inches wide and 5 feet deep trenches. The angle of the boom can be adjusted to control the depth of the cut. The trencher’s conveyor belt removes the excavated materials. To cut a trench, the boom is held at a fixed angle while the machine creeps slowly. Use these step-by-step instructions to easily dig a hole in no time with the right equipment.


Cable trenching is always time-consuming, highly skilled and hard work and we take great care to perform it properly, with well-trained people equipped with the right tools for this demanding and essential job. Cable Trenching, the installation of underground cables can be realized by our trenching machines. The chain trencher is used for digging narrow trenches (telecommunication, electricity) in both rural and urban areas. The advantage of this system is to minimize time, costs and also damage to the cable. If you need to dig underground for electrical or telecommunication wires, you can use chain trenchers from the power pole to the residence. Using a trencher cuts down on the time needed to create the trench, and this allows you to spend more time securing the wires in the ground.
