Trencher Attachment for a 3 - point hitch

Barry E. Smith I am searching for a trencher attachment that will operate from a 3 - point hitch and is PTO driven. I have a 1998 Massey Ferguson 240 diesel farm tractor with 42 hp at the PTO. Can anyone tell me if there is a trencher attachment available on the market similar to what Ditch Witch uses on their tractors?
Thanks,
Barry

Tom Harrison Kubota has one but it only fits their B series tractors. The following link (Bolton) is not the "ditch Witch" style; it is smaller but also less expensive:

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

jack nelson I just bought a really nice one made by Kelley manufacturing, the people that make backhoe attachments. It is for sale if you haven't found one yet.
Tim Frevert What is the specs on it?
How much do you want ?
Where are you located ?
I am in Kansas

Bruce Brogden Called Bradco and talked to sales guy. You MUST HAVE a hydrostatic transmission in order to run a 3-point trencher. Reason is that you have to have a ground speed of no more than 4 feet/minute @ the 540 PTO RPM rating. Manual low speed transmissions are way to fast and you'd burn up a clutch trying to go slow enough.
Ken Humphries Why not have drive wheels on the trencher attachment and put the tractor in neutral?
John I have a trencher that you do not need a creper gear or hydrstacic drive contact me at this e-mail adress
