Ditch Witch Organization to Reveal New Mini Skid Steers and Stand-On Trencher at The Rental Show, Booth 5300

PERRY, Okla., Feb. 21, 2017 – Ditch Witch®, a Charles Machine Works Company, will unveil its new mini skid steers and stand-on trencher at The Rental Show next week in Orlando, Florida (Booth 5300). These products will help rental companies ease maintenance and improve ROI. Rental companies in attendance can also take advantage of new equipment and parts promotions during the show.

Four new, construction-grade mini skid steer models will be showcased at the event: the compact SK600, the SK800, the SK1050 and the SK1550 which is the company's largest and most powerful model to date. The machines provide versatility, exceptional power to the attachment and superior performance to help renters complete everything from small, landscaping tasks to larger landscaping projects, and utility and irrigation jobs. Their low-maintenance designs can help rental companies minimize turnaround time and maximize profitability.

The new construction-grade ST37X stand-on trencher also will be on display. Its integrated digging system and heavy-duty, 50.000-lb chain allow operators to trench up to 16-in wide and 36-in deep for a cleaner and consistent footing in less time. The unit can help renters complete efficient drainage-pipe installations, and other trenching and landscaping tasks.
