Little Beaver, a Texas-based manufacturer of drilling equipment, wants to persuade landscapers to move away from chain-based trenching equipment. The company says its Kwik-Trench mini-trencher doesn’t just enable landscape contractors to work in tight spaces but also to complete jobs more quickly and safely than they can with chain-based machines.
The company says the bolt-on teeth of its Super Blade Plus and Super Xtra Rock Teeth give the Kwik-Trench an edge over other earth saws for cutting through different soil types. As a result, Little Beaver claims, the Kwik-Trench is both the fastest mini-trencher on the market and powerful enough to cut through 4-inch tree roots.
Because the teeth are bolted on rather than welded to the cutter wheel, replacing a single damaged tooth doesn’t require contractors to replace the entire cutter wheel. Super Blade Plus and Super Xtra Rock Teeth bolt on to the Kwik Trench’s cutter wheel with four bolts.
Little Beaver says landscape professionals can tailor Kwik-Trench earth saws to changing soil conditions because the capabilities of the Super Blade Plus and Rock Teeth complement each other. With the 1/2-inch carbide-steel Super Blade Plus, a Kwik-Trench cuts through soft soils such as loam and sand as fast as 30 feet per minute in ideal soil conditions. The Super Xtra Rock Teeth, which are made from 3/4-inch carbide steel, are ideally suited for dense clays and rocky soils, according to Little Beaver, enabling a Kwik-Trench to cut as fast as 20 feet per minute depending on the soil type and cutting depth.
