Barreto's all-hydraulic, walk-behind trencher line ranges from a 9-hp model with a maximum trench depth of 18 inches, to the model 1624-D4, which can trench to depths of 36 inches and to widths from 4 to 6 inches. The 1624-D4, available with a 16-hp Briggs & Stratton engine or a 13-hp Honda, features a four-wheel-drive system designed to improve traction in soft or slippery soil. The 1624-D4 weighs in at 1,000 pounds.
