Replacing the RT560 at 51 horsepower, the RT600 ride-on trencher provides 65 horsepower with its 3.3-liter Tier 4-I Cummins diesel. Ergonomic controls are grouped on the armrest, and when the operator rotates, the controls rotate along with him. Standard backfill blade controls are accessible from a swiveling seat platform. The machine can trench up to 72 inches deep and from 6 to 16 inches wide. Four-wheel steering and crab steering provide maneuverability in tight situations.
