Skid steer attachments: The new Bradco 655 Rock Trencher by Paladin Attachments mounts to high-flow skid steer loaders to tackle the toughest digging conditions, including asphalt, frozen ground, fracturable rock and compacted soils, year-round. By replacing the need for dedicated trenching machines, it yields a higher utilization of existing equipment at a fraction of the cost. The largest in Bradco’s full line of trencher attachments, the Bradco 655 Rock Trencher can trench up to 30 inches deep and 8 inches wide, easily meeting specifications for utility trenching applications. For increased safety, the low-profile dirt shield provides optimal operator visibility when trenching.

The Bradco 655 Rock Trencher features a tooth-every-station, double-standard rock chain for tooth pattern versatility and uses a rugged 50,000-pound anti-back-flex chain for extended life in the toughest conditions. Its heavy-duty chain reduction drive system amplifies torque to the cutting chain and high-torque hydraulic motor produces maximum digging power. The attachment’s built-in skid shoe provides positive depth control for the auger, while the pivoting crumber shoe assists with loose soil removal.

The entire Bradco Trencher line, with cutting depths ranging from 24 inches to 60 inches, offers several tooth options, including cup, shark, and rock and frost teeth, so you can meet your job’s individual requirements. The discharging auger neatly places dirt away from the trench to eliminate refilling. Each trencher utilizes a fixed-length boom with a spring-loaded, self-adjusting idler and full rock guard to provide added durability and safety during trenching. A heavy-duty crumber and safety bar also provide better trenching precision, while minimizing flying debris.

Paladin Attachments is a leading manufacturer of couplers and attachments throughout North America and parts of the world for the construction, aggregate, agriculture, landscaping, land clearing, recycle, mining, demolition, utility and municipal market segments.
