The new Bradco 655 rock trencher by Paladin Attachments mounts to high-flow skid steer loaders to tackle tough digging conditions, including asphalt, frozen ground, fracturable rock and compacted soils, year-round. By replacing the need for dedicated trenching machines, it yields a higher utilization of existing equipment at a fraction of the cost, according to the manufacturer.

The largest in Bradco’s full line of trencher attachments, the Bradco 655 rock trencher can trench up to 30 in. (76 cm) deep and 8 in. (20 cm) wide, easily meeting specifications for utility trenching applications. For increased safety, the low-profile dirt shield provides optimal operator visibility when trenching.

The Bradco 655 rock trencher features a tooth-every-station, double-standard rock chain for tooth pattern versatility and uses a 50,000-lb. (22,680 kg) anti-back-flex chain for extended life in the toughest conditions. Its heavy-duty chain reduction drive system amplifies torque to the cutting chain and high-torque hydraulic motor produces maximum digging power. The attachment’s built-in skid shoe provides positive depth control for the auger, while the pivoting crumber shoe assists with loose soil removal.

The entire Bradco Trencher line, with cutting depths ranging from 24 to 60 in. (61 to 152 cm), offers several tooth options, including cup, shark, and rock and frost teeth, to meet the job’s individual requirements. The discharging auger neatly places dirt away from the trench to eliminate refilling. Each trencher utilizes a fixed-length boom with a spring-loaded, self-adjusting idler and full rock guard to provide added durability and safety during trenching. A heavy-duty crumber and safety bar also provide better trenching precision, while minimizing flying debris, according to the manufacturer.
