Next-Generation Ditch Witch RT80: Designed for Versatility

Underground construction in urban areas can be a constricting and uniquely challenging experience – especially without a versatile and maneuverable machine. Enabling contractors and operators to overcome these challenges inspired improvements to an already proven Ditch Witch ride-on trencher, the RT80. The new, modern RT80 trencher brings a narrower, more modular design and added versatility to the Ditch Witch family of trenchers. The slimmer model is ideal for heavy-duty trenching, vibratory plowing and microtrenching in confined urban and residential areas where larger machines cannot maneuver as freely. With the typical residential street lane having a width of 11 feet, the RT80’s footprint of just over 61⁄2 feet gives operators plenty of room to work, without disrupting the surrounding area.

“The RT80 trencher was built to adapt,” said Chris Thompson, Ditch Witch product manager, heavy-duty trenchers. “Faced with tighter deadlines, smaller budgets and more congested underground networks, contractors need a utility trencher that can fit and function in any environment.
