Yes....but they are not cheap.....and you may want to consider a backhoe instead, dependent of course on what it is you want to do. The chinese even have one albeit sort of flimsy looking from the photographs...and not cheap either. Doubt I have answered you questions and you may want to check some of the archived responses as this issue has been dealt with in the past.

You would also need to have a hydrostat. or a creeper gear in order to go slow enough with the pto running at 540rpm to drive the trencher. Best of luck.

This past spring I rented a "ditch witch" 3pt that worked great on my JD4300 using the HST. Don't recall the brand (was similar to the Bobcat type) but don't think it was unreasonably expensive. I will try to run down the cost and brand name come Monday.

Bradco makes a 3-pt trencher and they are pricy. A west Michigan farm equipment dealer has a used one, all rusted up including the hyd. cyl. shaft for $6000!!!I hired a local excavator to trench 175' for water line I needed run and he charged me a whole $150. It would have been fun to do myself but the math didn't lie.

My experience with a trencher was with my 36 HP Bobcat and it barely was able to move the trencher beyond a depth of a few inches. My 46 HP BObcat did a better job but it told me that trenchers in particular place a huge demand on the machine. And if you hit any rocks it doesn't work well. I used my backhoe; it was messier but more thorough.
