Ditch Witch RT120 Quad Introduced

8/28/2013

PERRY, Okla. — The Ditch Witch organization introduces the RT120 Quad, a utility tractor with the power, heavy-duty frame and traction necessary for long installations of large-diameter pipe on the most challenging jobsites.

The sturdy Ditch Witch RT120 Quad is built around an exceptionally heavy-duty undercarriage designed to withstand punishing ground conditions and provide years of reliable service. The frame is engineered to tilt, enabling the RT120 Quad to dig a vertical trench on uneven ground.

The machine rides on a robust Quad Track System that provides outstanding stability and traction. Each track frame weighs 1,500 pounds (680.4 kg) each (including track), giving the RT120 Quad a lower center of gravity for increased stability and drawbar, while the chevron-pattern tracks provide maximum traction in wet conditions and on slopes. The RT120 Quad also features a best-in-class ground clearance of 15.5 inches (394 mm), enabling the machine to be more productive around bar ditches, creek beds and uneven terrain.

Powering everything is a Deutz diesel engine that adds to the machine’s long-term productivity. The four-wheel-drive RT120 Quad is equipped with a three-speed, shift-on-the fly transmission that enables the operator to quickly adjust to changing ground conditions, and standard rear steering that gives the RT120 Quad a tighter turn radius, resulting in better jobsite maneuverability.

The RT120 Quad is as versatile as it is powerful, offering several attachments for a range of underground construction tasks, including a combination trencher/plow attachment, an individual plow, a backhoe, a reel carrier, two types of saw, and two types of trencher attachments.
