TRENCH WHEELSThe Simple Field Drainage Solution
ABOUT TRENCH WHEELS
Just bolt the wheels to your ATV or UTV and drive through wet areas. The Steel Wheels make V-shaped trench tracks to drain surface water and save your crop. The 4” Pneumatic Wheels work great with heavier side-by-sides. Track depth is partially dependent upon the weight of the vehicle and operator. Deeper trenches can be achieved by simply retracing your tracks. Retrace your tracks by driving forward through wet areas then shifting into reverse and backing out. Deeper trench tracks can also be made by driving to the right or left of the original tracks, retracing with wheels on one side of the ATV or UTV. The trench tracks can be easily removed with conventional tillage if desired.
Produced and sold by Rust Sales, Inc., Trench Wheels are patented aerodynamically formed steel wheels that bolt on all-terrain vehicles in place of standard wheels and tires. The ATV or UTV is driven into the field and the Trench Wheels form narrow trenches to drain excess water. The resulting V-shaped trenches produce little if any crop damage. The patented Steel Trench Wheels, as well as the 4” wide Pneumatic Trench Wheels are available for most ATV and UTV models; call for details
INSTALL TRENCH WHEELS ON YOUR ATV OR UTV
The “Convert-a-Hub” bolt pattern plates adapt Trench Wheels to various ATV or UTV lug bolt patterns. Aggressive solid steel lugs on the outer bead face provide positive traction and are self-cleaning in muddy and/or high residue conditions. The Trench Wheel tracks are handy markers to map out Fall ditching after harvest.
Trench Wheels maximum field speed is 10 mph. Trench wheels can be driven on rural gravel and dirt roads with a maximum road speed of 5 mph. Trench wheels are not to be used on asphalt or concrete surfaces as they can damage those surfaces.
The low cost of Trench Wheels is cheap insurance to save your crop from damage due to standing water. Trench Wheels are a “Smart Tool” you can use many times a year to manage surface water problems. Buy a set of wheels so you’re ready when it rains!
