Ditch Witch Hydrostatic Drive Pedestrian Trencher

Updated Oct 1, 2010

PERRY, Okla. â€“ A compact hydrostatic trencher has been added to the Ditch Witch pedestrian trencher product line. The 1330 trencher is a reliable, low maintenance hydraulic drive trencher that features a reversible digging chain for dislodging rocks or spoils caught in the chain. It is an ideal trencher for rental yards, landscaping, irrigation and utility contractors- or any trenching application where an easy-to-use, productive and reliable pedestrian trencher is needed. 

A variety of design features help reduce maintenance costs and routine service time while improving the trencher’s overall reliability. These features include the hydraulic digging chain drive, a hydraulic oil cooler that requires less hydraulic fluid and a direct drive (not electric) hydraulic cooling fan. A bronze pivot bushing extends service life. Daily routine servicing has practically been reduced to simply checking the oil and gas. 

The 1330 trencher is equipped with a 13 gross hp (9.6 kW) Honda GX390 gasoline engine. The trencher can trench to depths of 36 inches (915 mm), with trench widths to 6 inches (150 mm). 

At just 81 inches (2 m) long and 34 inches (865 mm) wide, the compact size of the 1330 trencher allows it to mobile through a standard yard gate and work in narrow, confined areas. A variety of high-performance Ditch Witch digging chain systems are available for trenching in most soil conditions. 

Simple, color-coded operator controls help new operators quickly become productive operators. All controls are located within easy reach from the operator’s position and require little effort to use. A wrap-around style handlebar aids the operator in maneuvering the trencher. The 1330 trencher’s two-speed ground drive, with dedicated dig and drive speeds, boosts operator productivity. A standard axle lock can engage both drive wheels for straight trenching, or can free one wheel for easy maneuvering around the work area.
