The HT300 track trencher, a rock-digging workhorse, is capable of trenching up to 10 feet deep and up to 36 inches wide in the most extreme jobsite conditions. The 300-hp HT300 heavy-duty trencher is designed to deliver maximum trenching power even on rocky and uneven terrain, making it the ideal trenching equipment for wind-farm construction, pipeline work, installing and repairing energy-distribution facilities, and other heavy-duty applications. An exclusive flywheel gearbox delivering maximum power to the trenching attachment on demand while minimizing shock to the hydraulic system. A forged, heat-treated, high-alloy steel headshaft is guaranteed for life. The reversible conveyor deposits spoils on either side of the trench and trencher stabilizers effectively isolate vibration in rock and other harsh conditions.
