Ditch Witch RT36 and RT40 Trenchers
March 31, 2008
Ditch Witch offers the RT36 and RT40 trenchers. The RT36’s integrated cooled engine is rated at 36 net horsepower (26.9 kW) and features a solid-mounted, manifold muffler integrated on the engine’s side, which also results in quieter performance. The mechanical, dedicated trencher has an available center-mount utility backhoe and either four- or six-way backfill blades. Because its digging and ground drives adjust independently, the RT36 can quickly adapt to different soils. The hydrostatic, modular RT40 is equipped to run multiple attachments, including a backhoe, trencher, saw, plow, or combination trencher/plow. Its powerful, oil-cooled engine is rated at 42.2 gross horsepower (31.5 kW) and features a larger, isolator-mounted, horizontal muffler with a vertical stack. This design, combined with the RT40’s fiberglass hood, minimizes the machine’s noise and increases operator comfort.
