Construction equipment maker Ditch Witch released its new SK752 mini skid steer this month, highlighting added capacity, control and operator safety.
“Landscapers, contractors and renters alike will benefit from the SK752 mini skid steer," Andrew Schuermann, product manager for compact equipment, said. "They’ll find the machine has all the power and functionality needed for small or midsize projects. It’s a compact tool carrier that accepts dozens of quick-connect attachments so operators can tackle multiple tasks on the job site, from utility, landscaping and underground construction work to plumbing projects.”
The new model has an 860-pound operating capacity, 10 percent more than previous models. It also has a larger, 83-inch pin height to facilitate more efficient loading.
Drivers have several ways of maintaining increased control and safety, including a two-way auxiliary control foot pedal that lets drivers keep their hands free to manage other functions. The SK752 also features an ergonomically designed operator station, with an optional joystock, in addition to the familiar dual level drive controls.The new control features, combined with good ground clearance allows drivers to work comfortably and safely, with good views of the worksite, the company said.
