Ditch Witch has introduced the RT70 ride-on trencher, which is equipped with features that increase operator comfort and visibility, helping to boost efficiency and profitability on the job site.
For example, the ergonomically designed operator station features an open layout with a 90-degree swivel seat, more legroom and intuitive controls. This enhanced visibility provides a full view of the machine – from front tire to back tire and the attachment – helping operators of any experience level increase productivity. The RT70 also includes a patented cooling fan to reduce temperature levels in the operator station by moving hot, uncomfortable exhaust out of the side of the machine rather than toward the operator like traditional fans. This helps keep workers safer and more comfortable during long days.
Powered by a 72-horsepower Yanmar Tier 4 Stage V Compliant diesel engine, and built with a narrow footprint of 73 inches wide, the RT70 rubber-tire trencher can handle heavy-duty jobs and still easily maneuver around tight job sites, corners and cul-de-sacs with ease. It is also the only ride-on trencher available with crab and coordinated steering modes, allowing operators to turn the machine with a steering wheel instead of using two separate levers. www.ditchwitch.com
