Charles Machine Works (CMW), Inc., manufacturer of Ditch Witch underground construction equipment, has introduced two new compact tool carriers to its SK line. The Ditch Witch SK750 and SK755 will replace the SK650.
Customers can choose between two Kubota diesel engines, with either 25 hp or 32.8 hp. The new SK models offer up to 800 lbs. of lift capacity and an 81-inch lift height for better loading capabilities. Maneuverability around the jobsite has also been improved with 30% more center ground clearance and an high-drive track system featuring bolt-on sprockets, wide track rollers, and replaceable spindles. The new system makes it easy to convert from a narrow to wide track stance, and it allows operators to rotate tracks and achieve up to 40% longer track life.
SK operators will also notice several improvements in comfort. An ergonomic operator’s station features easy-to-use controls with an optional single-level joystick. A two-way auxiliary control foot pedal for the attachment frees up the user’s hands to control depth and ground speed. Most noticeably, the operator platform has been enlarged by 50%, providing more room to work and get positioned comfortably.
The machines accept more than 70 attachments.
