The Toro Company launches the RT1200 riding trencher. Built on a tool carrier chassis, it comes with options for tracks or tires and a variety of attachments—including a backhoe, 6-way backfill blade, rocksaw, vibratory plow, reel carrier and a trencher drive. It consists of three sections, a flywheel, torsion shaft, and a planetary gearset.
The flywheel stores inertial energy and keeps the chain running, the torsion shaft absorbs shock loads, and the planetary gearset multiplies the hydrostatic motor torque for added digging power.
• 4.5 liter Cummins Engine
• 121 hp engine
• Plow steer and swing of up to 30 degrees
“With its open-design operator platform, easily accessible controls mounted to the arm rests, multi-adjustable high-back suspension seat, and large digital display, the RT1200 provides the operator with great visibility and comfort to ensure maximum productivity,” says Josh Beddow, marketing manager for Toro’s underground utility equipment line.
Additionally, its Cummins 4.5 liter, 121 hp engine and 48 gallon fuel tank provide high output with minimal downtime. A standard tilt frame allows the operator to tilt the machine at variable degrees in order to maintain trench angle, while optional load control allows the operator to set the percentage of engine output dedicated to the ground drive to ensure the performance of the digging implement is maintained.
