Toro has introduced three new attachments for its riding trencher line. They include a direct drive trencher, which is available on the RT600, as well as a combo mount system and a sliding offset feature, both of which are available on the RT600 and RT1200.

In addition, Toro says it now offers two options of trencher drive styles. The HD PowerTrench drive stores power from a flywheel that is transferred to the torque-amplifying planetary system, the manufacturer says, giving the HD trencher the power to overcome rocks or other obstacles in a variety of conditions.

In contrast, says Toro, its hydrostatic direct trencher drive is a durable and cost-effective option in less demanding conditions. With the new hydrostatic direct drive trencher, the operator is able to perform trenching functions by using hydrostatic and inertial energy, the company says. The direct drive trencher can also be used as one of the attachments on the new combo mount system in conjunction with the Toro P85 plow attachment.

Toro says the combo mount system can help reduce downtime by allowing both a trencher and a plow to be mounted to the back of the machine. The RT1200 combo utilizes the HD trencher drive and the P105 plow with blade attitude adjustment. The RT600 combo, meanwhile, uses the new direct drive trencher in combination with the heavy-duty P85 plow attachment.
