Ditch Witch launches MT9 Micro trencher attachmentPublished 15/9, 2017 at 12:14
Ditch Witch has introduced the new MT9 micro trencher attachment to work in tandem with the Ditch Witch line of mini skid steers.
The MT9 creates clean, shallow trenches up to 228mm deep and 9.5mm to 38mm wide. A patented blade plunge provides variable depth control while the machine is in operation. It works with the FX65 vacuum excavator to create a clean trench in one pass by removing spoil.
“Traditional fibre installation methods lack the speed and efficiency to be cost-effective for contractors in many residential areas”, said, Ditch Witch product manager, heavy-duty tractors Steve Seabolt. “Our new MT9 minimizes the space required to operate, avoiding hurdles found in confined, tight and urban jobsites.”
Designed specifically for street crossings, the ability to push or pull the micro trencher keeps the saw in the ground for more efficient and accurate cuts. By eliminating the need to realign during a cut, operators are able to complete the cut faster and produce a better finish.
The MT9 works with the Ditch Witch PDC Fiber blade that contains diamond embedded carbide and is proven to last up to 20 times longer than standard blades.
The MT9 is backed by a network of over 175 dealer locations worldwide.
