About Skid Steer Trencher Tooth/Chain Styles and Appropriate Applications

Skid steer trencher attachments are a viable, practical, and cost-effective alternative to a dedicated trencher, and offer a great deal of utility for road crews, municipal works departments, landscapers, contractors, and so much more.

Most of them – for instance the trencher attachments produced and sold by Spartan Equipment – can be outfitted with specialized chains and teeth that make them suitable for a wide range of applications.

Here are some of the nuanced details of the chains with which these attachments are configurable.

Shark Style Teeth

Aggressive shark style teeth can slice and break up tough soil, shredding through clods, roots, and aerating and relieving the soil. This style of tooth, or a chain containing the style, is suitable in situations with tough, dense, packed soil or clay, or soil with a lot of roots and clods.

Cup Teeth

Cup teeth are designed for efficiency and maximal volume when excavating, which makes them ideal for trenching through looser soil and sand, quickly and efficiently. As a result, sometimes chains are outfitted with a combination of cup and shark teeth, to break up and remove the soil as expediently as possible.

Rock & Frost Teeth (Chains)

Rock and frost teeth and chains are the toughest and most aggressive of all trencher tooth styles. These are designed for cutting through completely frozen earth, fractured rock, and in some cases, even solid rock. This is the style of tooth or chain you will need for the most unforgiving soil conditions.

Appropriate Uses for Skid Steer Trencher Attachments

Skid steer trencher attachments can be used for a wide variety of applications, including but not limited to:

  • Digging irrigation trenches and drains to relieve the topography.
  • Digging lines for utilities, making them useful for construction companies and municipal works and maintenance departments.
  • For road maintenance, for the upkeep of the edges of roads, or of trenches or ditches that run alongside them for drainage. Some skid steer trencher attachments outfitted with suitable chains/teeth can also cut directly through pavement.
  • Constructing French drains, to help relieve the immediate locality of light flooding that might occur during heavy rain.
  • Loosening and aerating the soil by breaking up dense clods, cutting through tree roots and freeing the soil.

This list showcases only a few of the appropriate uses for skid steer trencher attachments. Though these are the most common, there are many others.
