Manufacturer of underground construction equipment Ditch Witch has introduced a new ride-on trencher, the RT30.

Designed with a sturdy, durable frame and field-proven components, the RT30 is built to handle some of the toughest conditions a jobsite can offer, according to the US manufacturer.

The RT30 is built with a robust trencher drive motor that utilizes a larger shaft and bearings than those of smaller trenchers. The ride-on has an advanced, maintenance-free pivot design raised to keep the RT30 above dirt and debris.

Powered by a 24.8-hp (17.9-kW) Kubota diesel engine, the RT30 can dig a trench up to 8 inches (20 cm) wide and 42 inches (107 cm) deep. Its 42-inch boom provides a 36-inch (91-cm) cover depth.
