Wheel trencher consists of a toothed metal wheel. Its operations can be carried out with ease when compared to a standard chain-type trencher. This type of trencher is best suited for hard, dry and soft surfaces. Wheel trenchers are utilized to break pavements for construction and maintenance of the road. It is designed in such a way that machine penetrates deep into the soil that reduces ground pressure and weight. Cutting components are installed all over the wheel. It can be replaced and adjusted accordingly.

2. Chain trencher:-

These equipments are ideal to break hard surfaces with the help of a bucket-type excavator. It also has the capacity to slice deep and narrow trenches. Depth of the cut can be managed by properly aligning the rounded metal frame. In order to effectively break a trench, a metal frame is placed at an angle enabling the machine to proceed further.
