Ditch Witch Zahn R150
March 31, 2008

The Ditch Witch Zahn R150 is more powerful, more productive, and faster than any trencher in its class, says Sewell-Howard. But it is more than just a great trencher. The Zahn is a radical new concept, a brand-new way of thinking about trenching equipment. The Zahn R150 power unit includes a 15-hp Honda gas engine, operator’s console, and an articulation joint. The power unit drives a front-end trencher that is designed to concentrate its weight on the digging chain, so it penetrates the ground easier and enhances overall stability. Unlike compact utility attachments, the Zahn R150 trencher delivers dedicated trenching performance. The Zahn R150 offers many innovative features, beginning with articulation joint. The Zahn R150’s fully hydraulic, articulated steering provides unmatched maneuverability, enabling the operator to easily trench a curve around trees, swimming pools, and other obstacles that utility workers and landscapers inevitably come across. The Honda gas engine is a new model that is designed to efficiently utilize horsepower and provide outstanding power and performance, and it can operate for hours on end thanks to the Zahn R150’s 11-gallon (41 L) fuel tank.
