Posted By admin On March 25, 2008 @ 12:00 am In Boomerang | No Comments

PERRY, Okla. ” Responding to requests by compact utility equipment customers for greater power and productivity, the Ditch Witch SK350 mini skid steer combines the compact size of the company™s SK300 with the outstanding power and versatility of the larger SK500. The SK350 is engineered to work longer without refueling, run more compact utility attachments, and provide greater overall power and efficiency than other machines in the 20-horsepower (14.9 kW) class.


 


One of the SK350™s more attractive design features is 7.5-gallon (28 L) fuel tank, which will enable operators to run the machine for five hours or more without refueling. Another convenient feature is the exterior position of both the gas and hydraulic tanks, mounted on the frame to enable operators to refuel or top off hydraulic fluid without raising the engine hood.


 


 Equipped with a powerful 12-gpm (45 L/min) auxiliary circuit flow, the SK350 is able to effectively drive the same number of compact utility attachments”more than 70”as the SK500. The entire unit is powered by a 20-hp Kohler engine, which comes standard with a heavy-duty air filter.


 


The SK350 has all of our classic SK features: zero turn radius, choice of steel or rubber tracks, easy-to-use operator interface, and the unsurpassed lift and dump heights, says Product Manager Mike Lumbers. Yet we™ve done a lot of things to make the SK350 even more efficient, like the standard remote air feature. And we™ve included a new float section on the auxiliary valve. The SK350 comes with quick-disconnect fittings, so attachments can be changed under pressure without having to shut the machine down.


 


Among the primary intended users of the SK350 are equipment rental companies, landscape operations, irrigation companies, and companies involved with the construction and maintenance of golf courses. 


The Ditch Witch organization specializes in the design and manufacture of high-quality underground construction equipment. The company is a one-stop source for trenchers, vibratory plows, pneumatic piercing tools, backhoes, electronic tracking and locating tools, horizontal directional drilling systems, drill pipe, downhole tools, vacuum excavation systems, excavator-tool carriers, mini skid steers and pipebursting systems.
