Highly Efficient Option for Mini-Trenching
February 23, 2018 - —Little Beaver's Kwik-Trench mini-trencher is offered in two models, the KT 200B and KT 2400B, both able to trench up to 30 feet per minute.
A compact design paired with durable construction and components allows the Kwik-Trench to tackle a multitude of projects, including landscape edging, root pruning, as well as installations of plumbing and drainage lines, low-voltage wiring, silt fences and sprinkler systems. Featuring carbide-tipped teeth and a powerful drive system, the mini-trencher cuts through tough surfaces such as compacted clay, road fill, asphalt and tree roots up to 10 inches thick.
In each of its two easy-to-operate push-forward models, the Kwik-Trench works quickly and efficiently to create clean, narrow trenches. Featuring a triple V-belt drive system, the Kwik-Trench achieves rotation speed up to 800 rpm. Precise cutting depth is achieved with a manual crank, while each trencher’s locking swivel wheel guides the unit, ensuring straight trenches. In addition to producing clean, precise results, the Kwik-Trench is designed to minimize backfill and cleanup time by depositing soil beside the trench.
Powered by a 5.5-horsepower Honda engine, the KT 200B is capable of achieving depths up to 8 inches. The unit features four carbide-tipped teeth and produces trenches from 1 to 3 inches wide. Productive and powerful in a lightweight and compact package, the KT 200B weighs in at just 265 pounds.
The KT 2400B unleashes 8-horsepower through its Honda engine and achieves depths up to 12 inches. Equipped with eight carbide-tipped cutting teeth, the mini-trencher produces trenches from 1 to 4 inches wide. The larger of the two models, the KT 2400B is still lightweight and manageable at 430 pounds.
Both Kwik-Trench models feature a compact design to allow easier access into tight areas unreachable to full-size trenchers. Additionally, each model is mounted on semi-pneumatic tires, making the Kwik-Trench safe to use on delicate lawns and turfs.
To protect the drivetrain from wear and damage, a slip clutch is built into the hub of the cutter wheel. Heat-treated, hardened steel teeth are carbide tipped for superior performance and extra long life.
For added convenience, Little Beaver offers an optional trailer to make transporting the Kwik-Trench a snap. The KT 2000 tilt bed utility trailer is built for a load capacity of up to 1,000 pounds and fits a 2-inch ball hitch. The trailer features spring axles, a 10-gauge diamond plate bed, and an axle lock and tie-downs.
