8M Trench Box


8M Trench Box

The 8” wall series of trench shields, commonly referred to as a trench box, are of a non-rigid design with strategic reinforcements, providing protection at greater lengths in the deepest and most demanding of jobsites. These trench boxes are meant to be used with excavators in the 80,000 to 100,000 lb. range.


One of our most popular shields for going deep, in good to moderately poor soils.

This trench box is engineered to the realities of profitable pipe laying. With high tensile steel, non-rigid design and strategic reinforcements, the GME 8M Series assures you of heavy duty performance in exacting conditions.
