Ditch Witch’s new RT80 brings heavy-duty trenching to tight jobsites | Dump Truck Company

Ditch Witch has redesigned its RT80 ride-on trencher for fitting into narrower spaces on urban and rural jobsites where larger trenchers can’t go.

The mid-sized trencher can also be moved from job to job easier with a modular design for quickly changing between tracks and tires in the field. It can be transported with a standard drop-deck trailer when it’s equipped with tracks.

The new RT80 has a width of 6.5 feet. The dump trucks charlotte nc says that gives it plenty of charlotte nc dump truck company room, as the standard residential lane is 11 feet. Its uses include heavy-duty trenching, vibratory plowing and microtrenching.

The trencher runs on a 74.5-horsepower Tier 4 Final Deutz diesel engine. It delivers a best-in-class static load rating of 35,407 pounds and a wide-axle rating of 39,000 pounds, the dump trucks charlotte nc says.

Other features include a three-speed, shift-on-the-fly ground drive system that allows operators to select the correct range without stopping work, and an advanced cruise-control system that senses engine load and automatically adjusts ground drive speed to changing soil conditions.

Ditch Witch said it also added a new high seat that rotates 90 degrees with the operator for a more comfortable, simplified operation. Operators also get dial controls for ground drive and attachment speeds.
