Swing Hoe Trench Digger


swinghoe2.jpgThe Swing Hoe Trench Digger features strong, hydraulically-controlled boom swings that swing a full 110 degrees. This allows operators to dump and pick up material on either side of the trench without maneuvering the skid-steer from side to side as is required with rigid, mini-backhoe attachments. That means minimal turf scuffing.

The Swing Hoe™ Trench Digger has two important advantages over more expensive, self-contained skid-steer backhoe attachments. You never have to leave the operator’s seat of the skid-steer, and its well-engineered design makes side stabilizers unnecessary. Simple, efficient constructions gives you the best of both worlds, saving time and money. Hydraulics are directly connected to the skid steer controls for low maintenance, and versatility like never before.

You have the power to dig deep trenches, reach high and reposition easily, all from the comfortable operator’s position. Swing Hoe™ digs down 6 feet, making it ideal for most landscaping or light construction trenching. Buckets available in 12″, 15″ and 20″ widths suit a variety of digging needs.
