Cable Laying Equipment: Ditch Witch 420sx

December 2009 Vol. 64 No. 12

The Ditch Witch 420sx vibratory plow offers walk-along and riding capability at 40 hp. A key feature is its dual-speed attachment drive.

With two speeds, the operator can quickly adapt to changing ground conditions, whether plowing or trenching. The 420sx is designed to closely follow the contour of the ground, which helps the attachment maintain a constant plowing depth on uneven terrain. The 420sx can also run a Roto Witch boring attachment and a trencher. The operator’s console moves with the operator when the machine’s frame articulates, so the controls are always in the same place in relation to the operator. Another exclusive feature of the 420sx is its fold-down ROPS (roll-over protective structure), which enables the unit to operate under tree limbs, eaves and other low-hanging obstacles. 800.654.6481, www.ditchwitch.com
