Vibratory plow adds features and retains durability
| January 18, 2007 |
Ditch Witch‘s 420sx vibratory plow borrows from the 410sx, but adds riding capability, a 40-horsepower engine, a dual-speed attachment drive and a fold-down ROPS, which enables it to maneuver under tree limbs, eaves and other low-hanging obstacles. The plow’s console moves when the machine’s frame articulates, so the controls are always in the same place in relation to the operator. Improvements to the plow’s design minimize the vibration transmitted to the station, so the operator can work longer with greater comfort. The unit’s skid shoes isolate vibration by keeping plow pins and other components off the ground, which also saves wear and tear on the machine and the turf.
