Some of the advancements of the new RT45 include a Tier 4i-compliant engine, improved air filtration and new gauges in the operator’s station. Like the RT40, the new RT45 offers a choice of attachments, including a centerline or dual-position trencher, vibratory plow, rotary saw, combination trencher/plow and backhoe.
The new, emissions-compliant engine is quiet, so the RT45 can be operated in noise-sensitive urban areas. The quiet engine also means greater operator comfort, a traditional design objective of Ditch Witch engineers. Other operator-friendly features of the RT45 include a roomy operator’s station, easy-to-read gauges, intuitive controls, easily accessible service points and an engine exhaust pipe that diverts hot air and noise away from the operator.
