Combined with features like the stowable loading conveyor, a sectionalized boom, large ROPS, and auto-tilt tracks, the T558 offset trencher delivers the muscle, the cutting action, and the versatility to tackle tough trenching jobs.
Feature: Sliding Offset Feature
Benefit: The T558 is the only offset trencher in its class that has the capability to trench outside the width of the left track (up to 9"). This gives customers the ability to cut alongside obstacles such as guardrails, curbsides, walls, etc.
Feature: Automatic Self Level
Benefit: The T558 will self level up to 10.7 degrees automatically This means you can have a vertical trench in sloping conditions without leveling the right of way. This also improves on chain wear and helps prevent trench cave-ins. This feature assists in saving time and money.
Feature: Sectionalized Booms
Benefit: Offers greater versatility by allowing the customer to change boom set-ups in a much shorter time.
Feature: TEC 2000
Benefit: The introduction of the patented TEC 2000 (Trencher Electronic Control system) has revolutionized the trenching industry through service diagnostics and increased productivity.
