Easy to understand and use control system features a safety clutch that does not kill the engine or require re-adjusting settings to resume operation. The unique manual chain control allows trenching through extra tough soil, roots, or rocks without the need to continually adjust ground speed.
The wheel drive hydrostat pump and digging chain gear pump are coupled together and then to the engine for a clean and simple application, with easy access for maintenance or adjustment.
The Barreto Advantage
Direct Hydraulic Drive to Head Shaft
No Belts – No Chains.
Lower Center of Gravity
Outboard Support Bearing – Standard
Safety Clutch Stops Wheels and Chain Immediately
Engine continues to run
No micro switches to fail
No need to re-adjust ground speed when resuming operation
Hydraulic Chain Reverse to Dislodge Rocks or Debris
Ground speed control lever to ground speed ratio – Forward: 1:1 – Reverse: 2:1
With the hydraulic chain drive motor attached directly to the head shaft, high maintenance chains and belts have been eliminated.
The outboard support bearing is standard, thus protecting the auger shaft from bending due to the impact of rocks and other debris.
