Trenchers have been part of the Vermeer family for more than 50 years. Due to its long history with trenching and experience in the trenching industry, Vermeer has been able to expand the use, functionality and efficiency of the trencher, enabling to customize the trencher to your need.  No matter how challenging or though the landscape is, the Vermeer trenchers can be used for all kinds of underground utility installations in all kind of conditions.

Trenching allows a fast and clean installation of underground utilities with minimal ground disruption. The straight or vertical walls of the trench allow to cut and remove the necessary amount of spoil, while providing its own backfill. This creates a clean and tailored trench, ready for use and with a built- in backfill.

Advantages & Benefits Trenching


High quality custom trench


A flat trench bottom instead of undulation, clean walls instead of uneven sides and cutting what is necessary instead of overdigging. The precise cutter of the trencher creates clean and straight ditch walls, providing you with a ditch that is of high quality, ready for installations and easy to backfill.

On top of this the Vermeer trencher cuts its own spoils which can be used to backfill, so there is no need for crushing or excavating more spoil.
