The Ditch Witch RT80 Quad is a heavy-duty ride-on trencher and vibratory plow designed to provide the power, durability, stability and traction contractors need for both short and long utility installations.
The RT80 Quad is completely designed and manufactured by The Charles Machine Works (CMW) to provide traction and performance on rough and uneven terrain. With its power and compact footprint, the RT80 Quad can handle any type of utility installation, short or long drops, on either tight or wide-open job sites, according to the manufacturer.
The 83-hp (62 kW) RT80 Quad features a three-speed, shift-on-the-fly ground drive that provides the power necessary to tackle any job site with the machine’s vibratory plow, traversing trencher, saw or backhoe attachments.
Equipped with a heavy-duty undercarriage and components, the RT80 Quad is ideal for installing utilities in some of the toughest job site conditions. Its axle capacity offers static load rating of 39,000 lb. (17,690 kg) and a 30,742 lb. (13,944 kg) of breakout. The machine’s track frames pivot about the centerline of the axle, a design that provides enhanced machine stability especially in muddy conditions or when applying very high torque to pull through hard ground. And the chevron-pattern design of the RT80 Quad’s track system helps reduce mud buildup, resulting in improved traction in wet conditions and on slopes, according to the manufacturer.
The heavy-duty nature of RT80 Quad extends to its attachments and other working parts.
