FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How big are the steel wheels?
A: The 28 inch diameter steel Trench Wheels are 1 1/2 inch wide on perimeter and flair to 3 inches wide in the center. Steel Trench Wheels are 55 lbs each.
Q: How do the steel wheels work?
A: The outside of the wheel are convex like a farm disk tillage blade,
which does two important things:
1. As the trench gets pushed deeper, the wheel’s convex sides pack the trench sides outward. Depending on soil conditions, this can keep the trenches open to drain water all year.
2. The convex sidewalls make a trench with no ridge along the edge. This lets the water pour right into the trench.
Q: Can I drive over the trenches in the field?
A: Yes, the trenches can be crossed with sprayers, trucks etc without a bump, during harvest, you can shave the ground, combine beans with a flexhead with no damage to the flexhead sickle parts.
Q: How long do the trenches last?
A: Depending on soil type and field conditions, the trenches can remain in the field all summer, giving you a pattern to follow with ditch scrapers in fall ditching activities.
