Earthmovers & Excavators - - News -

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.
