This commercial trencher is up for challenging tasks such as: irrigation, dog fencing, fiber optic, water line replacement, strip drain, edging and more. Other trenchers might crack under the pressure, but not the GR20.

The MiniTrencher GR20 can be used in all types of soils. It has two self-sharpening, heavy-duty chipper chains, which allow you to trench in the hardest and rockiest soil -- even frozen ground.

You also have the option to customize your chain size, with choices such as 1”, 1.5” and 2.38” wide chains. And the customization options don’t end there. The GR20 has a 2-stroke belt drive feature geared for optimal digging speeds. All these features, at a lightweight 36 pounds!

We also include a spare nose bearing, spare drive belt and owner’s manual, so you can utilize all the unique elements the GR20 has to offer.
