Trencher attachments

Trencher attachments by Lowe®. Choose between 5 base trenching models with multiple variations, XR-7, XR-14, XR-21, XR-25 and the XR-35. Depending on the model you choose, trencher capabilities such as trench depth, trench width and recommended hydraulic flow will vary, for example: possible trench depth runs from 2' to 3' when using model XR-7 and 2' to 5' with model XR-35. Possible trench width runs from 4" to 8" when using model XR-7 and 6" to 12" on models XR-14 thru XR-35.

While the Lowe® XR models may look alike, many of the differences between them comes from the different hydraulic motors and drive sprockets used. Call us to help you pick the right trencher for your trenching needs. Call 1-800-445-8244
