Big machines are plentiful in the Tesmec line of trenchers. The newest (and smallest), the TRS-700B Chainsaw, tips the scales at 29,000 pounds. This machine has 185 horsepower and is capable of depths to 8 feet in dirt, with widths from 10 to 18 inches. In rock, the machine can dig to 6 feet at widths from 8 to 24 inches. At the top end of the line is the 750-hp TRS-1675 Chainsaw, weighing as much as 268,000 pounds (depending on configuration) and capable of digging to 16 feet at a 60-inch width, and to 20 feet at 48 inches.
