A. The digging width of a trencher is dependent on the size of the machine rented, general size will range in 25-50mm increments, going from 75mm up to 200mm+, with larger/ more powerful trenching machines being able to dig larger holes.

I used this company in Carnegie and have used again for a project here in Bendigo, service has been nothing short of exceptional. I’ve been renting their toilets and some machinery and everything works perfectly. I think I dealt with Sebastian who is clearly very passionate about this industry. Very very happy.
