Compact Power Introduces Boxer Dedicated Trencher

Updated Apr 5, 2010

Las Vegas, NV Compact Power is pleased to introduce the new Boxer 118, a dedicated trencher, to their line of equipment. This is Compact Power™s first stand-on, compact trencher for the utility and irrigation contractor, as well as the rental market.  
The Boxer 118 offers a powerful, 18 horsepower, air-cooled Kohler Command Pro gasoline engine with a chain speed of 280 feet per minute. The dirt cup tooth chain is made of high carbon steel with carbide tips and is complemented by a standard discharge auger, which pushes the dirt away from the trench while in operation. The quick chain speed of the 118 along with the rigid chain teeth and discharge auger allow for a clean cut trench and consistent trenching speeds across a variety of soil types for increased productivity.
The 118 has a superb trenching depth for a stand-on compact trencher, reaching from 24 to 36 inches with a width range from 4 to 8 inches making it ideal for both utility and irrigation work.
This dedicated rubber track machine weighs 1,652 lbs and produces only 2.9 psi of ground pressure, thereby minimizing damage to existing lawns and landscapes. With a width of 35 inches, the 118 is compact enough to maneuver and trench in tight areas and easy to transport.
Similar to other Boxer products, the 118™s controls are ergonomically designed for maximum operator comfort and function. Compact Power designed a foot pedal and sort lever for easy trencher operation. The sort lever allows the operator to engage the trencher by hand. Once the trencher engages, the operator can then use the foot pedal to keep the trench chain rotating. The foot pedal allows the operator to focus on the machine™s steering and power controls while trenching.
Compact Power, Inc., a world leader in the compact equipment market specializes in products that range up to 50 hp (37.28 kw) and 5,000 lbs. (2272.7 kg). They manufacture a wide range of compact equipment including: Boxer Mini-Skids and Boxer Equipment, ProHauler System Trailers, CPI Attachments and Compact Power Equipment.
