The Trencher gives you the capability to create trenches alongside your railroad bed which is ideal for laying cables. The trencher allows you to remove significantly less material as opposed to using an excavator and can be configured to meet your specific needs.

For your fleet a trencher can be a necessary tool everyday or one that is needed for weeks or months at a time. Danella offers quality trencher rentals for our customers in the railroad and construction industry.”

–Tom Walsh, Vice President of Operations, Danella Rental Systems, Inc.

The right equipment makes for much easier and efficient work. If you’re laying cable or creating drainage ditches along your railroad bed, the Trencher can safely speed up the process significantly.

For example, if difficult digging conditions are encountered, the TrenchSense™ electronic control system reacts in seconds – faster than the operator possibly could. This will likely prevent an engine stall/stop. By eliminating the need to return controls to neutral and restart, productivity can be significantly increased – especially considering this sequence may be repeated frequently on a tough job.

Safety is always a priority at Danella, so a triangle reflector, Strobe Light, Back Up Alarm, Fire Extinguisher and Triangle Reflector Kit are all available.
