Astec Underground/Trencor.

The Astec 250-horsepower mechanical trencher utilizes the exclusive six-speed Trencor HD Powertrain transmission to provide trenching performance in any terrain. The 765HD will dig between 12 and 30 inches wide to a maximum depth of 8 feet. The standard 24-inch wide, dual motor, center-guided, hydraulically driven conveyor has infinitely variable speeds from 0 to 1,000 ft/min in either direction. It can be transversely shifted via hydraulics for precise spoil placement. The 765HD comes with these additional standard features: computer controlled transmission; bottom tailwheel transition wear plates--replaceable abrasive resistant plate for increased boom life; personnel guard for covering the digging chain above, when crumber assembly not used; work lights--(12 volt) installed, two fore and two aft; and noise abatement--noise absorbing material at engine and deflecting panels reduce ambient noise levels. The 765HD's 130 gallon fuel tank allows trenching for up to 10 hours a day. Ph: 865.458.8575 Circle No. 127
