The Groundhog trencher also comes equipped with a rollers that will significantly increased the life of the trencher digging chain while decreasing the risk of chain breaks. The chain rollers ride on the centre wheel of the roller while the side plates of the chain are guided by the wheel shoulders. In testing, sprocket jamming situations that would normally cause chain breaks were eliminated when using the roller.
