 RoadRunner Trencher

Has any one Heard of a Brand Of Trencher Called Road Runner
I was told that Case bought them out? Cannot find anything to confirm.

 RoadRunner Trencher

If I recall correctly the RoadRunner was made by Davis Mfg. or what then became Case-Davis, and what is now called Case. I also think it had steel tracks. Sometimes you can find them on e-bay for as little as $200 in bad shape. Pretty sure it dates back to the mid 70's. I have a 1987 Case DH5 articulated trencher---a fairly large machine at 5,000 lbs. with backhoe (for sale for the right price!) which has the same engine as full size dozers and backhoes of that era. Not sure what you are doing with it but for example my unit will trench from 2 in wide to 16 in. wide (backhoe has a 14" wide bucket)--but other Case units such as the Sneaker and Mini-sneaker will do around 2 to 4in.

 RoadRunner Trencher

You are exactly right about the roadrunner. Davis made it, Case bought them out but I never did see one on steel tracks. They looked like a farm tractor with a trencher on the back. They also had a backfill blade on the front.
Very popular in the late 60's, early 70's.

I've got one. You are correct that Davis was a division of Case. The Davis Roadrunner was a Case 580B tractor with a trencher on the rear, backfill blade on the front, and a fixed 4 post ROPS. They were available with a D100 backhoe mounted on the front. Mine was built in 1973. I trench 12" wide and can go about 60" deep.
