Ditch Witch RT80 trencher

The RT80 trencher from Ditch Witch offers a narrower footprint and a modular design to fit and function in small, urban enviroments. The narrower, more modular design is ideal for heavy-duty trenching, vibratory plowing and microtrenching in confined urban and residential areas where larger machines cannot maneuver as freely. With the typical residential street lane having a width of 11 feet, the RT80’s footprint of just over 6 1/2 feet gives operators plenty of room to work without disrupting the surrounding area. The trencher is powered by a 74.5 hp DEUTZ Tier 4 diesel engine. It delivers a static load rating of 35,407 pounds and a wide-axle rating of 39,000 pounds. 800-654-6481;
