Every now and again, not too often, you may find yourself in need of a nice trench. Maybe it’s to lay a wire, install an irrigation system, extend a downspout, or something out of the ordinary. For projects like this, there are several options. You could rent a trencher, haul it to your property, then haul it back to the store. You could dig it by hand, depending on your desired depth and length. You could use a trenching attachment for your skid steer, if you own one.
Or, if you happen to be the proud owner of a stump grinder, there are a lot of trenching projects that a stump grinder can handle. Namely, they are great for digging shallow trenches, perfect for laying wires or creating small drainage ditches.
A stump grinder works by eating away at stumps with a spinning steel disc fitted with cylindrical “teeth”. The teeth on the DR Stump Grinder are ideal for even tough projects because they are made from carbide, the same material used to drill into bedrock.
When applied directly to the ground, instead of to a stump, the stump grinder digs a perfectly even trench about two inches wide and several inches deep. And because of the strength of the grinder’s teeth, it won’t be easily worn down if it collides with a rock, root, or other obstacle.
For installing invisible pet fences or other projects that require a relatively shallow trench, using a stump grinder is a huge back- and time-saver!
