The Toro TRX Trenchers Models 22972, 22983 and 22984
The Toro TRX trenchers are top notch compact track driven trenchers. The track design is easy on existing turf and its low center of gravity increase stability on hills. Even though they are easy on the grass the dedicated drive pumps give this machine the power necessary to drive through loose sand and mud. The controls are very easy to use allowing operators to trench and drive backwards with one hand and adjust boom depth with the other. These walk behind trenchers use three hydraulic pumps that send the necessary power to where it needs to go. One pump controls one track, the second pump controls the other track and the third pump controls the cutting chain.
Toro offers three different models of the TRX trencher. The Toro TRX 16 (model 22972) uses a 14.5 horsepower Kawasaki gas engine and utilizes a recoil start.

The Toro TRX trencher models have some differences but also have things in common. All the models are less then 36 inches wide and come standard with a hydraulic oil cooler. A 24, 36 or 48 inch boom can be used on any of these models and chain options of soil teeth, rock teeth, combination rock and soil, shark teeth and bullet style are available.
