Toro Previews New RT1200 Riding Trencher at 2013 International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition
Toro will preview its new RT1200 riding trencher at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition in Louisville (ICUEE), KY October 1-3, 2013. Contractors will get a first look and a chance to demo the new ride-on trencher that features the Toro exclusive planetary gear reduction trencher drive technology.
Scheduled for release in 2014, the Toro® RT1200 riding trencher includes several features to meet the needs of utility contractors, including:
Cummins 4.5 liter, 121 horsepower engine delivers added power for faster, more productive trenching.
Planetary gear reduction trencher drive that uses a flywheel, torsion shaft and planetary gear set to multiple torque for consistent trenching performance in demanding conditions.
Tool carrier chassis design allows the RT1200 to be configured appropriately for each new job; contractors can choose from tracks or tires and several different attachments, including a backhoe, 6-way backfill blade, rocksaw, vibratory plow, reel carrier and trencher drive.
Standard tilt frame that allows the operator to tilt the machine by variable degrees in order to maintain trench angle.
Standard four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering for great performance in a wide range of ground conditions.
