Hey gang, looking for the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for person? Harbor Freight has it, the Towable Ride-On Trencher! It comes with a hitch coupler for hooking up the trencher to your pickup truck. Plus, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer, provided the stocking is at least 12 ft. long by 6 ft. in diameter. Now, we all know the story of Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, but few know the song was originally taken from another song entirely which was based on a true story—Rudolf the Towable Ride-On Trencher. And it goes something like this:


You know hack saws and hammers, wrenches and files, power drills and punches to give leather some style, but do you recall, the greatest trencher of them all…

Towable Ride-On Trencher

Rudolf, the Towable Ride-On Trencher

Had a 2.7 GPM hydraulic pump

Also a padded comfort seat

To fit any operator’s rump


All of the other farmers

Used to dig their trenches by hand

They didn’t have a boom that travels 60 degrees both directions

To dig trenches across their land


Then one soggy growing season

The farmers came to say

Rudolf with your 12” DOT certified wheels

Dig a drainage trench and we’ll make you a deal


Then how the farmers loved him

As the 3-tooth bucket dug up to 7 ft. deep

The trench drained off the flooded fields

The crops were saved so they could be reaped!


(As a side note, the “deal” the farmers made with Rudolf was 10% profit sharing for that season, which he used to invest in annuities and lived happily ever after.)
