    Tried the new toro trencher yesterday and it is pretty nice. It's a walk behind on tracks.Has anyone else seen this?

    Looks sweet. Your review...?

    Rented? Whats it cost new? Better than a dingo?

    We were at a local Irrigation association event and the guy brought it out.He said the 15hp model was around $10k and you could get a longer boom on it. It blows away any walk behind I have ever used.

    Did you buy it?

    it Looks nice, im sure it would work decent in damp conditions.

    Im wondering if they shouldnt have put an 18 or 20hp on there......

    Ive got the 425 with attachments..

    The guy just brought it out for everyone to try it. He said they have a 19hp model too and I am like you, I am partial to my 425.

    There is a 19HP model with the Kawasaki FH580V KAI. It's electric start instead of pull start and adds a hydro oil cooler. As you can see, they come with the aggressive track design optional on the Dingo and of course the awesome TX controls.

    So, its a little cheaper than a dingo, but nearly as versatile?

    I coould see itnfor rental fleets but a mini would be much more versatile for real life.
