Trencher Offers Versatility In An Innovative, Compact Package

Updated Oct 1, 2010

PERRY, Okla. – The manufacturer of Ditch Witch underground construction equipment introduces the HT25, a versatile, compact, light-utility trencher. The innovative HT25 creates a class of its own and fills a variety of underground construction needs, from city to suburb. 


The HT25 is ideal for replacing existing service lines, installing new service lines, small utilities, footings and landscaping projects such as water sprinkler systems. At 35.5 inches wide, the compact HT25 is designed to work in confined areas, and with a zero turn radius, it’s maneuverable enough to get in and out of tight spots. 


The HT25 is mounted on rubber tracks with hydrostatic ground drive and independent track controls. This affordable rider delivers power in a compact package with a 25-hp Kubota diesel engine. 


The HT25 can be equipped with a backhoe, backfill blade, and one of three available trencher attachments: centerline with a 36-inch (914 mm) digging depth, wide-centerline with 24-inch (610 mm) digging depth, and offset with a 24-inch (610 mm) digging depth. An optional drilling attachment adds to jobsite capabilities by allowing installations under sidewalks and driveways. 


The HT25 is designed for easy operation with productivity-boosting features such as electric-over-hydraulic digging chain engagement, enclosed self-lubricating gearbox, and easy to identify controls. The operator’s station features same-seat operation for trencher and backhoe tasks. A standard canopy and optional cab provide added operator comfort. 


Engineered with trenching and backhoe capabilities, the HT25 is an exciting addition to the Ditch Witch trencher family and another example of the continuous innovation the industry has come to expect from the Ditch Witch organization.
