DITCH WITCH ORGANIZATION UNVEILS 300-HP ROCK TRENCHER

PERRY, Okla.— The Ditch Witch® organization announces the release of a 300-horsepower rock trencher: the heavy-duty HT300.

Capable of trenching up to ten feet (3.1 m) deep and 36 inches (914 mm) wide in the most extreme jobsite conditions, the steel-tracked HT300 features a sturdy undercarriage designed to withstand the rigors of rock-laden jobsites, and trencher stabilizers that automatically adjust to terrain changes to isolate vibration in rock and other harsh conditions.

Protecting the operator from excessive noise and vibration is a fully enclosed cab with climate control, a standard feature of the HT300. Inside the cab are easy-to-use controls designed for optimal productivity and reliability in harsh conditions. As soil conditions change, the HT300s cruise-control system automatically adjusts the ground speed.
The HT300 features an exclusive flywheel gearbox that delivers maximum power to the trenching attachment on demand while minimizing shock to the hydraulic system. Another unique feature is a patented bit block digging system that allows the operator to customize the digging tooth pattern to best fit the application. The HT300 also features a conveyor that effectively deposits spoils on either side of the trench.

The HT300 is designed for the most challenging jobsite conditions, and the Ditch Witch organization guarantees the machines forged, heat-treated, high-alloy steel headshaft for life.
