The HT2200 is ditch witch's largest trencher to date, and features a 164 kW engine and hydrostatic drive. It is designed for large cuts – 305 mm to 610 mm wide and 1,2 to 2,4 m deep, and an exclusive flywheel gearbox delivers tremendous power on demand to the digging attachment while protecting the hydraulic system and other components from shock.
“Working in harsh conditions demands equipment that is extraordinarily durable and sturdy, and the HT220 does not disappoint,” said product manager Brent Bolay. “From its rugged undercarriages to its reliable controls to its forged, heat-treated, high-alloy steel headshafts, everything on this machine is designed to endure the particularly rugged conditions of rock-laden jobsites.”
“When you're moving this much soil, you need to get it out of the way quickly. This machine is designed with an integrated, reversible spoil conveyor which effectively deposits soils on either side of the trench,” he added.
