New disc trencher scarifies in both directions

At first glance, major innovations can sometimes appear small.

That is the case with the new disc trencher attachment from Bracke Forest, which had its world premiere at Elmia Wood.

It is called the T28.a and on the surface looks like its predecessor, the T26.

There are two differences and they are important for contractors.

First, the two discs can now be operated in both directions. This means that the operator can choose which direction the displaced material should be cast. This is particularly important when working on sloping terrain.

Second, the trencher discs have been redesigned. The teeth are symmetrical so they function in both directions and they are much easier to replace than before. They sit in pairs and are locked in place with four bolts.

The result of the new design is that the teeth last longer and that the cost of a complete trencher disc has almost been halved.
