Trenchers typically consist of a track or wheeled chassis with an engine and a cutting chain mounted on the front. The cutting chain is driven by a hydraulic motor and rotates around a sprocket at the front of the machine. To use a Ditch Witch trencher, the operator drives the machine forward and guides it along the desired trench line. The cutting chain digs into the ground, creating a narrow trench as the machine moves forward. The soil and debris removed from the trench are typically deposited onto a conveyor belt or into a hopper at the rear of the machine.
