New Ditch Witch C- and CX-Series Walk-Behind Trenchers

PERRY, Okla. – Ditch Witch® , a Charles Machine Works Company, has introduced a new line of walk-behind trenchers to provide contractors and rental companies with greater performance, reliability and serviceability.

Exclusive to the Ditch Witch organization, the CX-Series trenchers are equipped with the new patent pending CX Track system. The design includes a shorter left track, and longer right track, allowing better traction and a shorter overall length for superior maneuverability in tight spaces. The C-Series trenchers feature an exclusive, offset rear-tire design that delivers balanced traction and stability for increased production.

“With the C- and CX-Series of walk-behind trenchers, we continue to provide reliable and operator-friendly products that maximize return on investment, particularly equipment rental companies,” said Andrew Schuermann, product manager, compact equipment, the Ditch Witch organization.

The new compact design allows for greater visibility of the workstation, improving operator productivity. Re-designed, ergonomic controls increase machine responsiveness.

Routine maintenance is simplified by easy access to the machine’s components, reducing downtime and allowing operators to spend more time on the jobsite and less time in the shop. With no daily grease points, another Ditch Witch exclusive, keeping the trenchers rental-ready requires less hassle and prep time.

The six models – including the C12, C14, C16, C16X, C24X and the C30X trenchers – dig at depths between 24 inches and 48 inches. This new lineup utilizes the Ditch Witch 35K digging system or the new exclusive OptiCut™ digging system—both specifically designed to work with Ditch Witch trenchers to optimize production and performance.
