The SK900 is the newest model to be released in the Mini Skid Steer range from Ditch Witch, that now includes six construction-grade skid steers
Featuring high ground clearance and a unique high-drive track system, the SK900 provides increased traction and better stability, while it’s zero daily greasing requirements, bolt-on sprockets and track rollers make servicing the machine easy.
A feature unique to the Ditch Witch skid steer range is that all track rollers are replaceable and include a low-maintenance track tensioning system. The SK900 also features attachment plates, which will carry a wide range of attachments, and the biggest stand-on platform in the industry.
“The SK900 is a great new option within the range”, says John Grant CEA NZ general manager. “It features a few unique innovations, making it an efficient and hard-working machine, and an impressive addition to our already strong line up.”
With a Yanmar 24hp turbo diesel motor, and a new hydraulic system and ground drive, it punches well above its weight.
“Running at a lower rpm than similar machines, the Yanmar engine is much quieter than other units in the 24hp to 32hp class in the NZ market,” says John.
“Featuring a new hydraulic pump and higher torque drive motor, the SK900 also ensures greater tractive effort than other machines in its class. It will be noticeable to operators in applications where more pushing power is required, allowing operators to get more out of their machine, while maintaining a smaller footprint.”
There’s also a new paddle throttle in lieu of a mechanical lever, so there’s no adjustment required, making the set-up more reliable and easier to operate.
“For operators using the SK900 in applications including digging, loading trucks and preparing surfaces etc, having the additional ground-drive torque is very important,” John says. “They’re the operators who’ll see a big benefit from the SK900.”
