Ditch Witch C16X Walk-Behind Trencher Digs 36 Inches Deep

March 3, 2021
The C16X comes with the Ditch Witch exclusive CX track system.

Built to maximize performance and return on investment, the Ditch Witch C16X walk-behind trencher brings ease of use, maneuverability and serviceability to the rental industry. The C16X features a 16-horsepower Vanguard engine and a digging depth of up to 36 inches – making the machine good for installing irrigation lines, drainage lines, electrical line or sprinkler systems.

         The C16X comes with the Ditch Witch exclusive CX track system. Designed to improve traction while maintaining a compact footprint, the right track is longer to keep more track on the ground, while the shorter left track keeps the C16X easily maneuverable. The C16X is also designed for simple maintenance, with easy access to all components and no daily grease points. This keeps the machine rental-ready to increase renter profitability and operator productivity. For ease of use, the C16X features responsive, easy-touch ergonomic controls to enhance machine responsiveness and reduce operator fatigue.

       The C16X can be transported easily with the Ditch Witch SC3 Trailer. Custom built for Ditch Witch’s walk-behind trenchers, the SC3 comes with a rail system for simplified loading and unloading, a mounting kit and more than 50% increased capacity over its predecessor.
