The mid-sized trencher can also be moved from job to job easier with a modular design for quickly changing between tracks and tires in the field. It can be transported with a standard drop-deck trailer when it’s equipped with tracks.

And though Mahindra is primarily known for its tractors and agricultural equipment here in the U.S., according to Roxor’s Eric Anderson, this capable 4×4 is likely only the first foray into the U.S. automotive market for the company.
