The Charles Machine Works (CMW) Inc., manufacturer of Ditch Witch underground construction equipment, introduces the RT80 Quad heavy-duty ride-on trencher. The RT80 Quad can be used for any type of utility installation, short or long drops, on either tight or wide-open jobsites.

The 83-hp RT80 Quad is equipped with a heavy-duty undercarriage and components. Its axle capacity offers a best-in-class static load rating of 39,000 lbs., and a best-in-class 30,742 lbs. of breakout. The machine’s track frames pivot about the centerline of the axle, a design that provides machine stability especially in muddy conditions or when applying very high torque to pull through hard ground. And the chevron-pattern design of the RT80 Quad’s track system helps reduce mud buildup, resulting in improved traction in wet conditions and on slopes, according to the company.

Other standard features of the RT80 Quad include rear steering, which helps improve maneuverability on tight jobsites, and cruise control, which enables the operator to maintain optimal digging performance regardless of ground conditions.
