Most large construction companies should have a wide variety of trench boxes in their fleet for different jobs. But for a small to medium size company, this is a way to open yourself up to take on the jobs you wouldn’t normally be able to do.
Obviously, you will have many more options by having 2 boxes. First of all, you can run 2 separate jobs at the same time utilizing them as light weight utility boxes. Or these boxes can be stacked giving you the ability to get the extra depth you need by using a simple stacking connector.
They even make a spreader system to raise the height of the spreaders inside, where the boxes are connected, which will provide easier installation of longer pipe.

This is a great add-on if you already have 2 boxes. They manufacture corner connectors for almost all of our boxes.
