How big are the Steel Trench Wheels?

How do the Steel Trench Wheels work?
The outside of the Steel Trench wheels is convex, like a farm disk tillage blade.
This does two important things:
- As the trench gets pushed deeper, the wheel’s convex shape packs the
trench sides outward. Depending on the soil type, this has the potential to keep the trenches open to drain water all year.
- The convex sidewalls make a trench with subtle ridging allowing water to pour into the trench.
Can I drive over the trenches in the field?
Yes, the trenches made with the Steel Trench Wheels can be crossed with sprayers, trucks, etc. without a bump. During harvest, you can shave the ground and combine beans with a flex head with no damage to the flex head sickle parts.
How long do the trenches last?
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.
Will the wheels fit my ATV or UTV?
Steel or Pneumatic, Trench Wheels fit all 4-wheelers and most UTVs. Different lug-bolt patterns are matched by changing bolt-pattern plates on the wheels. Once installed, these bolt pattern plates remain on the Trench Wheels.
What if I get a new ATV or UTV?
If you purchase a different make machine, order new Lug-bolt pattern plates and the wheels will still fit.
Can I drive my ATV or UTV with the Steel Trench Wheels on the road?
Steel Wheels can be driven on rural gravel or dirt roads. Do not drive on asphalt or concrete roads. Max road speed is 5 mph. We suggest you haul your unit from field to field.
