 Ditch Witch trencher

Ditch Witch divides its line of chain-type trenchers into three categories: pedestrian (seven models); compact (three models); and heavy-duty (seven models). At the small end of the heavy-duty range is the RT55, powered by a 60-hp Deutz F4M-2011 diesel engine and featuring hydrostatic ground drive with planetary axles and optional four-wheel steering. The RT55 has an integral front counterweight that eliminates extended weight racks. The machine accepts chains from 6 to 12 inches wide and can dig to 62 inches.
