Little Beaver’s Kwik-Trench mini-trencher is offered in two models, the KT200B and KT2400B, both able to trench up to 30-ft. (9 m) 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 is able to cut through tough surfaces such as compacted clay, road fill, asphalt and tree roots up to 10 in. (25.4 cm) 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-hp Honda engine, the KT 200B is capable of achieving depths up to 8-in. (20 cm). The unit features four carbide-tipped teeth and produces trenches from 1- to 3-in. (2.5 to 7.9 cm) wide. Productive and powerful in a lightweight and compact package, the KT 200B weighs in at just 265 lbs. (120 kg).

The KT 2400B unleashes 8-hp through its Honda engine and achieves depths up to 12-in. (30.5 cm). Equipped with eight carbide-tipped cutting teeth, the mini-trencher produces trenches from 1- to 4-in. (2.5 to 10 cm) wide. The larger of the two models, the KT 2400B is still lightweight and manageable at 430 lbs. (195 kg).

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 lbs. (453 kg) and fits 2-in. (5 cm) towing balls. The trailer features spring axles, a 10-gauge diamond plate bed, and an axle lock and tie-downs.
