Whether you are cutting a shallow utility trench or driving deep into solid rock, Kennametal is ready to help you do it better with high-performance earth cutting and wear solutions from terrain levelers to microtrenchers and everything in between. 

Powerful Tools for Any Trenching Application

Choosing the correct tools is key to a successful trenching operation. That’s why Kennametal offers tooling suitable for narrow to deep cuts and extreme environmental conditions on key pieces of equipment such as chain trenchers, rock wheel trenchers, bucket wheel trenchers, and surface miner trenchers.

No trench is too wide or too deep. Our cutting systems range in size from 11mm-42mm and can work in rock forms from shale and soapstone to granite and sandstone. With a wide selection of sizes and abilities for quick change systems, cutting tools, tool holders, clip pullers, and tool pullers for your trencher, micro trencher, horizontal drill and more, Kennametal ensures your trenching equipment withstands the toughest conditions.

Bits, Blocks, & Accessories Made to Last

Kennametal utilizes state-of-the-art technology and field data to design tools that deliver maximum cutting efficiency. We understand each customer situation is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all solution, so we offer numerous bits, blocks, and accessories for your various trenching equipment.

Our bits are designed to be exceptionally durable. Varying tip styles are available to ensure you achieve maximum strength, optimal wear resistance, and longer, sharper profile life. Blocks are built to provide the right balance of wear resistance and toughness. These unique designs and additional accessories are available for your application specific needs.

World-Class Wear Protection

Protect your trenching wheels and chains with KenCast™, a composite material that combines the remarkable wear resistance of Kennametal cemented tungsten carbide with the toughness and practicality of air-hardened steel.

KenCast comes in a variety of standard and custom sizes, is easily welded to your equipment, and is more breakage-resistant than brazed carbide tiles. KenCast has your trencher’s back like Kennametal has yours.
