Rotors (Digging)

Rotor Information

Brown Products, Inc. manufactures a number of rotors for the Trenchmaster, Bededger, Bantam, Redefiner, Wiremaster Mole and Bantam Mole. Each rotor is designed to dig a trench for a specific purpose. Some rotors are interchangeable from one machine to another (Trenchmaster and Bededger) as long as they do not exceed the limitation of the machine it is to be used on and the shaft size is the same. Bantam, Redefiner, and mole unit rotors are addressed separately below.

Rotor Guide

The TrenchMaster and BedEdger are powerful and versatile machines that can perform multiple tasks. Interchangeable rotors give you flexibility and control so you can get more done.

For Ordering additional or replacement rotors, contact your local dealer. Locate your dealer on our distributor map.

Clay Rotors

2 Point Clay Rotor

Trenches 1″ Wide

Available in: 3″, 4″, 5″, 7″, 9″, 10″, 12″ depths

Normally used for burying wire or cable or for burying edging (plastic, steel, or other landscape materials).

3 Point Clay Rotor

Trenches 3″ Wide

Available in: 7″, 9″, 10″, 12″ depths

Normally used for installing sprinkler systems.  Designed for use in all soils except heavy scattered rock.  Suitable for digging in small scattered rock or gravel driveways.  However trenching in sand, gravel and asphalt does reduce the life of all rotors.

5 Point Clay Rotor

Trenches 3″ Wide

Available in: 7″, 9″, 10″, 12″ depths

Normally used for installing sprinkler systems.  Designed for use in all soils except heavy scattered rock.  Suitable for digging in small scattered rock or gravel driveways.  However trenching in sand, gravel and asphalt does reduce the life of all rotors.

7 Point Clay Rotor

Trenches 3″ Wide

Available in: 7″, 9″, 10″, 12″ depths

Costs approximately 30% more than the five point rotor, but will increase the life of the rotor by 75-90%.

StumpMaster™ Rotor

Removes small stumps up to 3-1/2″ below the ground surface.  Stumps should be no higher than 6″ above the ground.  May also be used for removing large surface roots.

Note: Not recommended for rental stores.

BedMaster™

Different sized rotors designed to dig 3″, 4″, 5″ or 6″ deep, which slope 6″ to 8″ back into bed. The 3″ BedMaster rotor is designed for bed defining. The 4″, 5″ and 6″ are designed for installing steel or plastic edging, bricks, paving stones, or other edging materials.

ReDefining Rotor

Trenches 3″ deep and slopes into the bed 3″

Used instead of 3″ BedMaster for redefining beds. It was developed as an alternative to the 3″ BedMaster in an effort to reduce the amount of dirt to be cleaned up after re-defining existing beds. Costs less, digs faster and requires less clean up.

RainDrain Rotor

Trenches 4-1/2″ Wide

Available in: 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″ or 12″ depths

This rotor is used to bury 4″ drain line in order to divert water from gutter downspouts away from the house. The 4″ rotor is also used for installing block or brick edging.

Curbing Rotor

Digs a 2″ deep x 9″ wide Trench. Also available in 2″ deep x 6″ wide and 4″ deep x 8″ wide for laying timbers and other landscape materials.
