Eagle Bucket Wheel Trenchers

Guntert & Zimmerman is committed to manufacturing the highest quality bucket wheel trenchers to increase productivity, lower operating costs, and ensure ease of operation. Eagle Trenchers are an excellent choice for a wide variety of high production trenching applications, such as foundations, utilities, irrigation, and fiber optic installations. Eagle Trenchers are built rugged enough for the toughest jobs and when the job is done...a clean superior end product is left behind.

Along with Bucket Wheel Trenchers for trenching applications, G&Z builds Trapezoidal Trenchers for excavating and trimming small to medium size canals at high production rates in a single pass. Trapezoidal Trenchers eliminate the need to use a conventional excavator for the initial rough excavation in preparation for trimming because of its combination excavator and trimmer design.

Years of field and manufacturing experience and incorporating the latest available technology make Eagle Trenchers the obvious choice for boosting jobsite trenching productivity and profitability.
