The former category ranges in horsepower from 33 to 74, in maximum cutting depths from 48 to 60 inches, and in cutting widths from 6 to 18 inches. The latter ranges in horsepower from 125 to 600, in operating weight from 23,000 to 210,000 pounds, in cutting width from 7 to 48 inches, and in cutting depth from 6 to 18 feet. The 44-hp, fully hydrostatic RT450 shown here can dig to 60 inches and provides widths from 5 to 12 inches.
