The Paddock™ walk-behind trencher combines the best of the mechanical and engineering world. With 15HP of genuine Briggs & Stratton power and clever ergonomic design, it provides you a powerful trencher that is easy to manoeuvre and operate whilst being extremely capable of tackling difficult jobs.
Paddock engineered an intuitive and simple to operate control system for this unit. It works faster and straighter than you might expect from a walk-behind trencher. The simple pivot and pull sytem combined with a low centre of gravity and large footprint offers stability and increased manoeuvrability - all the while conserving existing turf. Suitable for the rental business industry, council contractors, tradesperson, farmers and home handy persons. With a simple design approach and a quality B&S motor, this is a superior, more reliable and easier to operate trencher. This unit is suitable for operation by people of all skill levels and is very manageable in both tight areas as well as wide open spaces.
Ideal for trenching through yards and properties, its portable design still digs up to 600mm trench depth. Users can quickly select and adjust the cutting depth via the predetermined settings to achieve accurate trench depths. The blades on this trencher have been specified during design to the best quality carbide alloy blades, so they perform and last in tough Australian conditions. The screw auger pushes the excavated earth to the side providing a neat channel ideal for laying piping, cables or whatever needs to be buried. Excavated soil can easily be back filled into the trench as it's left to the side in a neat pile.
Paddock equipment is over-engineered to eliminate problems seen on lower cost machines making it suitable for trade, rental and commercial use in addition to lighter duty domestic use. The trencher's slim design fits through narrow gates and doorways and allows trenching close to walls and fences. The side cleaning auger stops material falling back into the trench. Having this trencher powered by a quality and well supported Briggs and Stratton commercial engine means you will always get the performance you expect and will be able to service and maintain this trencher well into the future.
Once you mark out your trenching path, operation is as simple as starting the quality B&S engine. Allow the engine time to warm up whilst selecting the pre-set depth adjustment settings.
To begin trenching, increase the engine RPM and use a up and down pivot motion on the handle to raise and lower the trencher bar into the ground. The unit is balanced and designed to make this ergonomic and manageable with ease. Your body weight is used to push down on the bar raising the trencher while the weight of the engine and bar lowers the trencher chain into the ground. Each time the trencher is pivoted and raised, simply roll the unit back 150mm before repeating the cycle. This simple and repetitive action sees trenches dug with ease at ~1m per minute in common Australia backyards.
