The product I received was not the product Home Depot showed on the website. The unit came with different installation instructions, a flat tire and missing pieces. I have been waiting for over a month for a return!
by GREG
Not the expected product
No manual or instruction came with the product, and the product is not the same as the one described online or in the downloaded manual. Why would the "newer" model get rid of the trolley wheel that would have been helpful?

The product was well made. It arrived in perfect condition. I immediately returned it. I returned it because the product did not conform to the advertising specifications. Those differences were: The product was advertised having a 5 position depth adjust lever. It did not. It simply had a hand crank to raise the blade up and down. I was under the impression from the advertised product sheets that there was a front wheel to assist in moving unit. There was no front wheel on the unit making it almost impossible for one person to move as the unit weighs 360 lbs. more or less. To add insult to injury, the day I received the unit, Home Depot put the unit on sale for approximately $700.00 less for a limited time. I am assuming that they were simply getting rid of an older design and I got caught up in the shuffle. Customers need to be aware that this type of unit is not powered to drive it's self, so if you do not have a way to pick up and move this unit, you will have problems. I feel that the advertising for this product did not live up to most customers needs.

Very hard to operate. If you think the engine helps propel the Trencher, think again. The manufacturer should make this clear. I will not be keeping it as I am unable to manually propel it. One needs quite a bit of muscle to do that.
