Our 3ft walk behind Trencher rental, like our 4ft, is also a Ditch Witch model only this one being a C24X with up to a 36” digging depth for efficient installation of pipe and cable. All of our rental trenchers are track driven and hydraulically powered, with no belts, and are ready to tackle big or small jobs for the contractor or home owner.

The C24X walk behind 3ft trencher rental is every bit as powerful as our 4ft trencher in perspective to the maximum trencher depth its designed to do.

Equipped with a 22 horsepower Honda GX690 engine and CX Track system (this system uses a short left track and longer right track) that makes for much better maneuverability, traction, and even shortens the overall length so you can reach hard to work areas and make easy work of any up coming trencher projects.
