New Equipment: Ditch Witch

July 2018

Ditch Witch has introduced a new 275-horsepower track trencher named the HT275. With its power and 70,000-plus pounds of mass, the HT275 is significantly smaller than most big track trenchers, can do jobs that smaller trenchers can’t, and is much more versatile than other trenchers of comparable size, according to Steve Seabolt, product manager for heavy duty trenchers. Primary markets are expected to be small-diameter pipeline installation and other energy-related work, such as wind farms and solar installations, “underdrain” slotted pipe adjacent to highways, and agriculture tiling installation of slotted drainage pipe to drain water from fields.
