Trench Wheels

DRAIN EXCESS WATER WITH MINIMAL CROP DAMAGE

Standing water produced by heavy rains will destroy a good crop if not drained quickly. However, using heavy equipment to form runoff trenches creates huge ruts that can cause damage to spraying and harvest equipment.

Trench Wheels on UTV

Save your crop by converting your ATV or UTV into a ditching machine!

Just bolt the Trench Wheels to your ATV  and drive through wet areas, making V-shaped trench tracks to drain surface water and save your crop. Track depth is partially dependent upon the weight of the vehicle and operator. Deeper trenches can be achieved by simply retracing your tracks. Retrace tracks by driving forward or driving through wet areas and then shifting into reverse and backing out. Deeper trench tracks can also be made by driving to the right or left of the original tracks, retracing with wheels on one side of the ATV.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Trench Wheels trenches

Q: How big are the wheels?
A: The 28 inch diameter steel Trench Wheels are 1 1/4 inch wide on perimeter and flair to 3 inches wide in the center. Steel Trench Wheels are 55 lbs each.

Q: How do the wheels work?
A: The outside of the wheel are convex like a farm disk tillage blade,
which does two important things:
1. As the trench gets pushed deeper, the wheel’s convex sides pack the
trench sides outward, keeping the trenches open to drain water all year.
2. The convex sidewalls make a trench with no ridge along the edge. This
lets the water pour right into the trench.

Q: Can I drive over the trenches in the field?
A: Yes, the trenches can be crossed with sprayers, trucks etc without a bump, during harvest, you can shave the ground, combine beans with a flexhead with no damage to the flexhead sickle parts.

Q: How long do the trenches last?
A: The trenches remain in the field all summer, giving you a pattern to follow with ditch scrapers in fall ditching activities.
