FAQs About Trenchers

Our United Rentals specialists are standing by to help you select a trench excavator or trench digger rental if you need assistance. We offer trenchers from popular brands such as Vermeer and Ditch Witch for rent, along with several others. We also offer different types of trenchers, including ride-on trenchers and walk-behind trenchers to suit your specific task needs. With wheel and track trenchers available for varied types of terrain and trencher options up to 90 horsepower, our selection can satisfy various job demands.

Trench diggers are like walk-behind ergonomic compactors, but instead of a vibratory plate, trenchers are affixed with a rotating chainsaw-like chain with auger teeth or scoop buckets to break up soils and remove them from a narrow area. Trench excavators serve the same purpose with similar functionality but are typically ride-on, covering more surface area. Both effectively create trenches for piping and wiring or waterways. Should you require more information on our lineup of trenchers for rent, visit our FAQs section below

How much does it cost to rent a trencher?

The cost of a trencher rental will depend on the make, model and location you are renting from. For more information on the trencher rental pricing, enter your location and see rental rates in your area.

Can a trencher cut through roots?

Trenchers can cut through small roots but take caution: Trenchers were designed to remove soil, and you can damage the equipment if you force the machine to sever a large root. If you have a lot of roots to clear, a mini excavator with an attachment would be the best option.

How do you cut through roots with a trencher?

If you have a limited number of small roots, ensure your trencher has a strong carbide blade and higher horsepower. Then clear the dirt around the roots with the trencher so you have a clear view of them. Position the trencher to one side of the root, start the trencher, lower it onto the soil next to the root and move the trencher into the root. Do not force the trencher into the root but be firm. Make several cuts into different sides of the root until it is torn up and out of the trench.
