I was trying to find a picture of the mini-skid with a rock-wheel we've been using to share. I found these on my computer from a while back. This was a customer of ours that was having some oak wilt rock trenching done. The contractor dropped this saw into the river and yanked it back up the hill cutting along the way. Worked surprisingly well. Enjoy -

"Justin" Case trencher?
Personally I hope I never have to do an oak wilt trenching job again.
I'm still hacking up rock dust from the ones I did years ago. :cry:

For Pete, oak wilt trenching is done to disrupt root
connections responsible for root transmission of the pathogen.
Wow, I sound so scientific I be could be a google link!

Sprinkus nailed it - disrupt the roots.

Yes I believe it was an older case machine with a hydra wheel saw. If my memory serves it was about 50" or 60" depth

I think this one had some grant money from forest service or the like so they had specific requirments. IE trenching into the river a certain distance.

Your tax dollars at waste! Cool work though.
