Little Beaver Kwik-Trench Mini-Trenchers

Little Beaver’s Kwik-Trench mini-trencher is offered in two models, the KT200B and KT2400B, both able to trench up to 30-feet per minute and tackle projects such as landscape edging and root pruning, and installations for plumbing, drainage, sprinkler systems, low-voltage wiring and silt fences.

Kwik Trench miniFeaturing carbide-tipped teeth and a powerful drive system, the mini-trencher is able to cut through tough surfaces such as compacted clay, road fill, asphalt and tree roots up to 10 inches thick. Each push-forward model works quickly and efficiently to create clean, narrow trenches. Featuring a triple V-belt drive system, the Kwik-Trench achieves rotation speed up to 800-rpm. Precise cutting depth is achieved with a manual crank, while each trencher’s locking swivel wheel guides the unit, ensuring straight trenches. In addition to producing clean, precise results, the Kwik-Trench is designed to minimize backfill and cleanup time by depositing soil beside the trench.

Powered by a 5.5-horsepower Honda engine, the KT 200B can trench up to 8-in. deep. The unit features 4 carbide-tipped teeth and produces trenches from 1- to 3-in. wide. The KT 200B weighs 265-pounds.

The KT 2400B uses an 8-hp Honda engine, trenching up to 12-in. deep. Equipped with 8 carbide-tipped cutting teeth, the mini-trencher produces trenches from 1- to 4-in. wide. The KT 2400B weighs 430-pounds.

Both Kwik-Trench models feature a compact design to allow easier access into tight areas unreachable to full-size trenchers. Additionally, each model is mounted on semi-pneumatic tires, making the Kwik-Trench safe to use on delicate lawns and turfs.

To protect the drivetrain from wear and damage, a slip clutch is built into the hub of the cutter wheel. Heat-treated, hardened steel teeth are carbide tipped for superior performance and extra long life.

For added convenience, Little Beaver offers an optional trailer to make transporting the Kwik-Trench a snap. The KT 2000 tilt bed utility trailer is built for a load capacity of up to 1,000-pounds and fits 2-inch towing balls. The trailer features spring axles, a 10-gauge diamond plate bed, and an axle lock and tie-downs.
