DITCH WITCH HT275 TRENCHER
That’s not a trencher … THIS is a trencher! The Ditch Witch HT275 can dig a 66cm-wide ditch down to 3m deep in dirt and rock.
Built for heavy-duty tasks along the lines of pipeline distribution and under drain installation, the HT275 features a Cummins Tier 3 or Tier 4 engine capable of 205kW (275hp) and has a tractor tilt design that lets it dig a perfectly vertical trench on a side slope.
Komatsu America was showing off a few all-new machines at the expo, and also showcasing a number of Tier 4 Finalupgraded earthmover such as this PC138USLC-11 excavator.
The unit features the company’s simplified emissions system, which doesn’t use a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and has 100 per cent passive regeneration.
The Australian availability of these machines has yet to be confirmed.
