Ride-on trenchers are ideally suited for applications that require deeper digging depths beyond the capabilities of most walk-behind trenchers. The Cat® Rental Store offers an assortment of ride-on trencher rental units from Ditch Witch and Vermeer.
The Cat Rental Store believes in providing you with low-hour, high-performing machines. That's why our dealers offer trencher rentals from Ditch Witch and Vermeer.
The Ditch Witch is a trade name for Charles Machine Works, a subsidiary of Toro Company. The company found its beginning in 1949 when Ed Malzahn replaced the shovel and pick with the invention of the compact trenching machine. Decades later, Ditch Witch specializes in various models of underground utility construction equipment.
The Vermeer Corporation introduced the self-propelled Pow-R-Ditcher in 1956 and now offers heavy-duty trenchers for a variety of settings. These high-quality machines can cut several feet per minute to create straight walls and a clean, level bottom. Vermeer trenchers cut their own spoils to provide built-in backfill for your trench with speed and efficiency.
Common applications of both types of trenchers include laying electric transmission lines, pipeline installation, water and sewer installation, and water management. When installing natural gas and oil pipelines, trenchers help prepare space to set the line a specific distance from the surface.
Trenchers can dig trenches that place electric transmission lines a set amount below the frost line. These machines aid water and sewer line installation by cutting cleanly through even rocky earth.
Trenchers can also open ditches and place corrugated tiles to create a flow channel for water management on farms and highways. Tiling a farm field can prevent soil erosion and help irrigate crops. Digging around highways can create runoff sections that increase the overall useful life of the road.
There are several unique advantages of trenchers that can benefit any job site:
Renting a ride-on trencher allows you to expand your equipment inventory without incurring significant upfront expenses. If you need an extra machine or two to meet a tight project deadline, renting provides a fast, cost-effective way to increase your fleet. A rental also enables you to acquire a project-specific machine so you can complete the task more efficiently. And if you need a quick replacement for a trencher that's out of commission, a rental from The Cat Rental Store can have you back in business in no time.
