SK650 mini skid steer has a 31-hp Kubota diesel that directs 20 net horsepower to the attachments, says Ditch Witch. An extension of the line, SK650 features quick-disconnect attachment fittings that enable them to be changed with the system under pressure. Foot pedal auxiliary control allows the operator to drive the attachment by foot, freeing hands to control depth and ground speed, the company says. Fuel and hyrdraulic tanks are mounted on the exterior of the machine, enabling both to be larger. Attachment-level indicator on the lift frame allows the operator to see from the operator's station if the attachment is level. Estimated list price: $21,000.
