Toro is extending its line of dedicated walk-behind trenchers with the introduction of the Toro TRX-26. Boasting a 26-hp (19.4 kW) Kawasaki engine, the TRX-26 is ideal for utility workers, irrigation contractors and plumbers looking for the power of a ride-on trencher, with the maneuverability and control of a walk-behind.
“Based on feedback we received from contractors, we found there was a growing demand for a larger, more powerful walk-behind trencher,” said Greg Lawrence, product marketing manager of Toro. “To fill the gap between ride-ons and smaller walk-behinds, Toro designed the TRX-26 to be powerful, yet easy to use.”
With many of the same features as the Toro TRX-15 and TRX-19 models, the TRX-26 makes trenching more efficient without putting any extra strain on the operator, according to the manufacturer.
The Toro Dingo TX-style control system on the TRX-26 makes it easy to control and eliminates the “jerk” steering required with handlebar control steering, allowing for smoother, more precise trenching. Three simple controls operate all traction and trenching functions, making the TRX-26 much easier to use and learn than other trenchers. And with its zero-turn capability and ground pressure as low as 4.1 psi, the TRX-26 has the ability to access confined spaces without damaging existing turf.
The low-profile tracked design of the TRX-26 provides a low center of gravity and a large footprint for increased stability and added traction on hills and uneven terrain.
