Intoducing the Toro® TRX-15 and TRX-19 Trenchers

Why a Dedicated Trencher from Toro?

  • Customers have experienced success with Dingo® compact utility loader/trencher attachment

Dedicated TRX Trailer

Toro”s TRX trailer has important features included in its compact design

Ramp tail gate

  • Safer for the customer to load and unload when compared to competitive trailers that feature tilt-bed designs. Ramp minimizes potential pinch points
