    I am in need of a trencher. I am looking at the trench'n'edge for the versitility. however I am very hesitant because we have hard clay soil here. What do you think will it work?

    Any idea if the eztrench ground saw is a better trencher?

    you should check out www.trenchblade.com and see it that thing could work for you. A lot of people are using them in Georgia and we have super hard clay soils.

    I am usingit to trench for irrigation. So that would not cut it for me. No pun intended

    Use a toro dingo, the company i work for has one ( diesal with rubber tracks) and we have the trencher attachment as well many others but it will trench through anything and everything, ive pulled shale 3' by 3' atleast.

    I have a dingo 420, i just wanted to get away with not using a chain trencher in a back yard
