A.F.T. Trenchers Ltd

AFT Trenchers Ltd. has been making specialist trenching equipment for nearly forty years. Originally all machines were self propelled: smaller trenchers on wheels and larger types as ride-on models with tracks. In the 1970s a small wheel trencher was manufactured, which was propelled forward by means of a winch cable. These machines were originally developed for the British Railways and once started, they could work alongside a railway line without any staff nearby so train traffic did not have to be interrupted. The winch also made it possible for these trenchers to climb steep railway embankments. Of the two models made, more than a thousand were produced. They also were very popular for laying electrical cables, notably for motorway illumination.AFT Trenchers have an extensive worldwide network of authorised dealers.
