Ditch Witch says re-designed operator stations provide greater comfort to its three new turbocharged utility tractors, the RT105, RT125 and RT125 Quad.
Each machine features innovative control consoles and operator stations, the company says, with easy-to-read gauges and 120-degree seat rotation. Dial controls for ground and attachment operations provide the option of adjusting power to each system to maximize productivity.
The five-inch, color LCD engine displays rotate with the operator, providing direct visibility into all machine functions, including engine performance. All three models feature tilt steering columns and increased legroom, the manufacturer says.
“Long hours on the job site can take a toll on operators,” said Steve Seabolt, Ditch Witch product manager for heavy-duty trenchers. “We’ve taken trencher performance to the next level and given operators the comfort they need for enhanced productivity and performance.”
The RT105, RT125 and RT125 Quad are powered by turbocharged, Tier 4 Final Deutz engines. The RT 105 engine is 107 horsepower. Both the RT125 and RT125 Quad are powered by 121-horsepower engines.
Each tractor offers best-in-class ground clearance, according to Ditch Witch, and four-wheel drive systems are standard.
The RT105 accepts two types of trencher attachments – centerline and dual position – in addition to a front-mounted backhoe. Removable side panels provide easy access to service areas. Ditch Witch says engine service points are conveniently located and the oil level can be checked without opening the engine enclosure.
The RT125 accommodates a wide range of attachments, the manufacturer says, including the trencher, plow, earth saw, backhoe, reel carrier, and trencher/plow combo.
The RT125 Quad is equipped with a shift-on-the-fly, ground drive system that senses and automatically adjusts to load conditions. Ditch Witch says its standard rear steer provides operators with superior turning radius and increased traction and flotation while digging.
