Reduced/Zero Tail Swing Excavators: Ditch Witch

April 2010 Vol. 65 No. 4

The XT850 features a dual-pivot excavator system with a 260 degree total excavator sweep for wide offset digging capability.

The 24.5-hp XT850 has independently controlled rubber tracks for zero-radius turning capability in tight areas. It’s made for tight budgets, too, as it comes complete with a specially designed trailer and attachments. The XT850 offers a quick-connect attachment plate that accepts more than 70 Ditch Witch compact utility attachments and a choice of turf-friendly or aggressive tracks, depending on jobsite conditions. All functions are controlled with just two joysticks, and the XT850’s infinitely variable, pilot-operated controls help even a novice quickly learn to operate it. The unit weighs less than 4,000 pounds. 800.654.6481, www.ditchwitch.com
