Compact Power offers the Boxer 118, a dedicated trencher, to its line of equipment. This is Compact Power’s first stand-on, compact trencher for the utility and irrigation contractor, as well as the rental market. The Boxer 118 offers a powerful, 18 horsepower, air-cooled Kohler Command Pro gasoline engine with a chain speed of 280 feet per minute. The dirt cup tooth chain is made of high carbon steel with carbide tips and is complemented by a standard discharge auger, which pushes the dirt away from the trench while in operation. The quick chain speed of the 118 along with the rigid chain teeth and discharge auger allow for a clean cut trench and consistent trenching speeds across a variety of soil types for increased productivity. The 118 has a trenching depth for a stand-on compact trencher, reaching from 24 to 36 inches with a width range from 4 to 8 inches making it ideal for both utility and irrigation work.
