Trenchers

Ditch Witch HT275 Trencher

Ditch Witch HT275 Trencher

Designed for heavy-duty trenching, the Ditch Witch HT275 trencher prioritizes productivity and increases year-over-year return on investment (ROI) on water, sewer, gas, power and underdrain installations, pipeline distribution and other large trenching tasks. While it adapts to a broad range of trenching jobs, the unit is optimal for utility installations up to 10 ft deep and 26 in. wide. A Cummins 275-hp (205-kW) Tier 4 engine powers the HT275 through diverse jobsite environments with ease. And the unit’s hydrostatic trencher-chain drive with an infinitely variable displacement motor enables operators to quickly adjust chain speeds to acclimate to soil conditions. Four hydraulic quick-disconnect blocks and a modular design allow for rear attachment changes without heavy lifting equipment and reduce the time it takes to change attachments from days to hours.

Toro RT1200 Riding Trencher Cab Assembly

Toro RT1200 Riding Trencher Cab Assembly

Toro recently introduced an optional cab assembly specifically engineered to be factory installed on the Toro RT1200 riding trencher. The cab assembly provides a number of features focused on accessibility, safety and operator comfort. In terms of accessibility, the cab features doors on both sides of the trencher for simple entry and exit to and from the operator’s station, regardless of jobsite obstacles or challenging terrain. Various safety features have been incorporated into the cab assembly including front and rear windshield wipers for maximum visibility in less-than-ideal conditions, and a pressurized cab that virtually eliminates dust and debris from entering the operator’s station. The pressurized cab also reduces noise from outside the cab, to help minimize operator fatigue. Web: toro.com

Wacker Neuson Wheel Loaders

Wacker Neuson Wheel Loaders

Wacker Neuson offers three types of wheel loaders in North America: all wheel steer, articulated and telescopic. All-wheel steer loaders (AWS) are designed with a ridged one-piece chassis that prevents shifts in the center of gravity at full turn. This ensures stability, event when working on uneven ground and maintains constant payload. Articulated wheel loaders are designed with an articulation joint, allowing the machine to pivot. When working in confined areas with tight turns and uneven terrain, the articulated wheel loaders are excellent. Telescopic wheel loaders offer a two-in-one machine concept with additional reach for stacking and dumping with a telescopic boom, plus ground engaging capabilities, providing added versatility and greater productivity.
