Features & Benefits

VZ steering system

Steers effortlessly with the VZ steering system that requires minimal effort to the handle bars.

Narrow footprint

Fits into narrow areas with a footprint that measures only 35-in (88.9-cm) wide.

Operator presence system

Promotes on-the-job safety with an operator presence system that disengages the trencher and ground drives if the operator leaves the controls, in addition to a trenching cleat that restricts backward motion.

Trenching depth control

Elimination of the tail wheel on the track unit provides trenching depth control in uneven ground conditions and convenience to move through tight spaces.

High-torque digging

The RTX130 is equipped with a 13-hp (9.7-kW) Honda engine for optimal power on your jobsite.

Slender profile

A 35-in (88.9-cm) width allows the RTX130 to access small spaces — including passing through typical backyard gates.
