The Ditch Witch organization introduces the RT120, a ride-on tractor with a 120 hp (89 kW) Deutz diesel engine that has the power to drive the RT120’s eight optional hydrostatic attachments. The RT120 is the most versatile member of the Ditch Witch RT-series, the best-selling trencher family in the world.

The RT120’s engine is Tier 4 compliant, meaning that it meets with the most up-to-date EPA emissions requirements and, therefore, needs no expensive, time-consuming aftertreatment. Like every Ditch Witch RT Series tractor, the new RT120 is a blend of advanced technology and heavy-duty components that ultimately results in exceptional efficiency and productivity.

The foundation of the RT120 is a massive one-piece, rigid frame that can withstand tough jobsite conditions job after job, year after year. The Ditch Witch organization also offers an optional tilt frame configuration that enables operators to dig a vertical trench on uneven ground. In addition to two types of trencher attachments, the RT120 offers a vibratory plow, a combination trencher/plow, a backhoe, reel carrier, and two types of saw attachments.

Dial control design gives the operator precise control of the ground drive speed and attachments, improving production. The RT120 is also equipped with a cruise-control system that senses engine load and automatically adjusts ground drive speed. Plus, standard four-wheel drive helps provide superb traction and mobility in all kinds of jobsite conditions and applications.

The RT120’s operator’s station is ergonomically designed to improve comfort and enhance overall productivity. It offers a 90-degree swivel seat, adjustable armrests, an easy-to-read gauge cluster, and a tiltable steering column. The operator’s station also features a color LCD engine display that provides all engine information and diagnostics.

Maintenance of the RT120 is simplified by removable side panels that provide easy access to service areas. Engine service points are conveniently located on the left side, and the oil level can be checked without opening the engine enclosure.
