Your Ideal Digging Solution for Irrigation

Engineered for industrial performance, the GeoRipper 620 is compact, efficient, and perfect for fast trenching and short digging depths. Make light work of everyday narrow trenching with a lightweight mini Makita trencher that's easy to operate and even easier to maintain.

Turn 2 Day Trenching Projects Into 1-Day Labor with The GeoRipper 620

An irrigation tool like a trencher works exceptionally well for laying pipes and electrical cables or installing drainage. The GeoRipper with Makita EK6101 61 cc engine with 4.4 horsepower is excellent for narrow trenching applications, engineered to operate with user convenience in mind. Weighing in at only 33 lbs., this is the perfect lighter digging alternative.

You can easily tear through and remove rocks up to 4" in most soils for multiple applications, while self-sharpening digging teeth can dig deep to tree roots up to 3" in diameter below grade! Your 620 tool will come complete a 20" maximum depth bar.

The cyclonic air intake delivers air more efficiently by discarding larger debris. This not only increases air filter life but also ensures less maintenance! Plus, innovative features like Stratified Air Scavenging (SAS) recovers up to 75% of unburned fuel to reduce fuel consumption.

You won't need as much pull-start force to get your GeoRipper 620 going! The start capacitor is engineered to start up quickly with support and operate with less vibration, so your grip remains firm and in place throughout the entire trencher use. A tight, steady grip ensures precision and efficiency. With guaranteed lower noise at 97 dB(A) and smoother idle for continuous operation, this is a Makita trencher unlike any other!

Plus, you're guaranteed to increase your productivity and decrease injuries over hand digging. Execute two-day projects in just a single day's time without the aches, pains, and inconvenience of digging by hand.

How to Use Your GeoRipper 620

The Makita EK6101 trencher takes a standard 50-1 mix in fuel to operate at its best. Zero ethanol, high premium-quality fuel of 90 octane or more works best, as well as a 50-1 mix of a premium, full synthetic fuel. If you're not using fuel in high volumes or for an extensive range of machinery, we recommend looking for something pre-mixed, like a true fuel that is shell-stable and can stay in the engine for a long time.

Whenever you're operating your GeoRipper or any other industrial, commercial machinery, always make sure to wear the proper Personal Protective Equipment, better known as PPE.

The best PPE for minitrencher operation includes the following:

  • Eye protection, like safety glasses
  • Ear protection, such as earplugs or 3M ear protectors
  • A full-face shield, made from a polycarbonate material
  • Rugged safety boots or shoes to protect your feet
  • Shin guards to protect against rocky soils and gravel
  • Gloves

Besides your PPE, it's also a convenient and safe practice to keep other tools nearby for quick repairs and maintenance during operation. We recommend tools like a sledgehammer to break up rock jams and an 18 mm wrench to tighten and loosen digging chains.

Simply flip the switch to the ON position, give it about two or three pulls, then listen to your GeoRipper 620 roar! In the morning or for cold starts, slip the switch to the CHOKE position, give it no more than four pulls, and try to start it up. If it dies, flip the switch to the ON position and proceed with your startup as usual.

Pro Tip: To keep the chain from being on the ground and spinning, especially when in CHOKE, place your foot on the outer loop.
