SHELTON – System 25®



The Shelton System 25™ is a versatile mini trencher. Used primarily for installing secondary drainage systems 25mm(1”) or 50mm(2”) wide over a network of piped drains in a one pass operation, theSystem25™ may also be used to install 60mm and 80mm land drainage pipes and underground services.

The System 25™is capable of cutting trenches 25mm (1”) to 97mm(3.8”) wide to a maximum depth of 450mm(18”).  It has a coupled back filling attachment which allows for a one pass trenching operation.

The System 25™’s hydraulically driven chevron conveyor carries the spoil into a trailer or dumper running alongside leaving a clean surface finish. The backfilling attachment is hydraulically vibrated to ensure the smooth flow and even distribution of aggregate back into the trench.

Constructed mainly in stainless steel, the System 25™ is very strong and is unlikely to rust.  The use of stainless steel also enhances the soil flow through the machine.  The digging wheel cutters are tipped in hard wearing tungsten carbide to maximise their lifespan.

Optional extras include hydraulic depth control, pipe reels, pipe layers, and twin rear wheels.
