Standard Features

 Heavy-duty components include a drive linkage that is built to last and designed to simplify operation and maintenance.  
 Standard outboard bearing support stabilizes and supports the headshaft and auger, for reliable productivity trench after trench.  
 No belts to maintain—or break—because Ditch Witch walk-behind trenchers are equipped with direct-driven hydraulic pumps, independent ground-drive hydrostats, and a hydraulic gear pump for auxiliary functions.  
 Hydraulic, skid-steer-style steering makes RT-series trenchers more maneuverable and more productive.  
 Easy hand controls: one hand for mobiling, two hands for trenching; all controls—including engine throttle, chain-engagement, and boom lift—are grouped conveniently at the operator's station.  
 Your choice of high-flotation tires or heavy-duty tracks, both of which provide the stability and traction to drive across trenches, curbs, and rough terrain; oscillating tracks “walk” or oscillate 12 degrees, for extra stability.  
 Solid-rubber trail wheel increases stability when traveling over uneven and rough terrain, reduces breakover when loading and unloading, and improves leverage when trenching.  
 Exceptionally reliable and durable Honda engines power the RT12, RT20 and RT24, while the RT16 offers an economical and reliable Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine; all models equipped with electric starters.  
 In tough ground conditions, torque to the trencher chain can be increased by replacing the digging system’s standard 12-tooth sprocket with a 10-tooth sprocket.  
 Support from a worldwide dealership network dedicated exclusively to sales and service of the Ditch Witch product line; every dealer is extensively trained to provide superior customer support, including genuine Ditch Witch parts that extend the life of your equipment.  

Options

 Optional, affordable backfill blade is easy to install and reduces cleanup time and manual labor.
