The Ditch Witch HT115 features rubber or steel tracks for better traction, greater front-end weight for easier plowing, a larger-capacity fuel tank (45 gal/170 liter) for longer-lasting performance, and an improved cooling system. It is equipped with a Tier-2-compliant, 115-hp (86-kW) John Deere engine. The steel-track HT115 is ideal for use in outlying areas where greater traction is needed, while the rubber-track model can safely and efficiently navigate urban jobsites. Utility and telecommunications companies will embrace the versatility and performance of the HT115. The HT115’s user-friendly operator station offers state-of-the-art electronics, with speed and direction controlled by a single, easy-to-use joystick. The HT115 also has AutoTrack, a computer-controlled track drive system which regulates speed while the attachment is operated, which helps reduce operator fatigue. Downtime is minimized, too, because the efficient new John Deere engine can go longer stretches between oil changes.
