Ditch Witch Releases SK850 Mini Skid Steer

Ditch Witch Releases  SK850 Mini Skid Steer

Ditch Witch has announced the release of the SK850, designed and engineered to be the most comfortable, most productive and most durable mini skid steer in its class. Equipped with a 37-hp (27.6-kW), Tier 4 Yanmar diesel engine, the SK850 is the most powerful of the company’s mini skid steers. The engine provides outstanding power for all machine functions and directs more power to the attachment than competitors’ models, so attachments are more productive. The SK850 accepts dozens of attachments for a wide range of utility, landscaping, plumbing, and other underground construction tasks.

The SK850’s innovative high-drive track system has bolt-on sprockets that can be interchanged—an exclusive Ditch Witch feature—to provide longer-lasting performance. The track system also has a low-maintenance track-tensioning system with a grease cylinder for easy adjustment and track removal, which helps increase track life and reduce downtime. The SK850 comes with the customer’s choice of 42-inch (107-cm) or 36-inch (91-cm) wide tracks.

With its 860-lb (390-kg) rated operating capacity and 83-inch (211-cm) hinge-pin height, the SK850 is engineered for exceptionally productive loading. Unlike its competitors, the SK850 is construction-grade, built with reinforced steel that can withstand the rigors of the jobsite. And its belt-free design helps minimize maintenance and increase uptime.

Another standard feature that improves both operational efficiency and operator safety is the auto-throttle function. When enabled, the auto-throttle automatically reduces engine RPMs when hydraulic functions are not in use. The engine returns to the operator-set engine RPM when any hydraulic function is engaged, improving overall fuel efficiency.

LOAD 60 TONS IN JUST FOUR PASSES WITH VOLVO

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
