Toro has expanded its TRX walk-behind trencher line with two new models that are designed for performance, serviceability and ease of use.
The new TRX-250 and TRX-300 trencher models feature Intelli-Trench technology, an innovation that optimizes the machine’s hydraulic flow for the digging conditions. The system automatically diverts the hydraulic flow from traction motors, providing more power for the trencher head.
As a result, the traction handle can be held in one place without requiring constant adjustment, reducing operator fatigue and optimizing performance. As well, the Intelli-Trench feature decreases track wear and maintains engine rpm for efficient engine cooling.
“We’re always looking for ways to help our customers save time and maximize productivity,” said Neil Borenstein, director of marketing at Toro.
“With these updates, we’ve taken the proven TRX design and made it even easier to use and maintain. The TRX has always had the advantage of a low centre of gravity and a large footprint, which gives it excellent stability and maneuverability while minimizing damage to existing turf. The new models deliver those benefits and more.”
New trencher hydraulic design
The new TRX models also have a new hydraulic design that requires significantly fewer components than previous models.
The design simplifies maintenance, potentially reducing service needs.
Other features include differentiated traction controls that are easy to learn and use. Operators will find the familiar TRX trencher valve handle and boom lift lever, as well as independent traction control for the left track and the right track.
The boom lift function has also been enhanced with a new hydraulic valve that allows the boom to move up and down smoothly.

The TRX-250 is equipped with a 24.5 hp Toro engine and offers a maximum forward speed of 3.9 km per hour, while the new TRX-300 has a 26.5 hp Kohler EFI engine and has a maximum forward speed of 3.7 km per hour.
A heavy-duty air cleaner is standard on both engines. Both models are 209.6 cm long, 85.9 cm wide and 116.8 cm tall, with a ground clearance of 10.9 cm and a fuel capacity of 18.2 litres.
