Trencor introduces T1460 to T14 trencher upgrade
American Augers/Trencor, a Charles Machine Works company, has released a large-scale upgrade to its 1400-series trencher line. The T14-54/617 trencher features a Tier 4 Final emissions compliant engine, electronics and customer-requested features.
Modifications to the Tier 4-compliant trencher were sourced directly from operator input gathered in the field.
The T14 rig’s electronics package includes a digital operator display in the cab, upgraded software and a telematics package. The telematics package enables the rig to gather, log and transmit real-time operating data used for predictive maintenance, reporting requirements or overall optimization of trenching operations.
Emission compliance is based on a Tier 4 Final Mercedes MTU6R1500 industrial/mining diesel engine. The Mercedes engine runs at lower, quieter speeds, and generates torque rated up to 2,139 ft.-lb. at 1,300 rpm.
Safety enhancements include a new digging drive brake and optional cameras in the cab that increase operator visibility of the worksite.
T14-54/617 trencher options include a new quiet pack for running in sound-sensitive environments, such as urban worksites, and a counterweight package that increases the machine’s width and depth capabilities.
