Trenching power unit

Trenching power unit

The Zahn R300 power unit from Ditch Witch includes a 30-hp Kohler gas engine, operator’s console and articulation joint that enables the front end to perform like a dedicated unit. The two-wheel-drive R300 powers two types of front-end trenchers, while its four-wheel-drive InterChange counterpart accepts up to seven types of front ends: trencher, plow, dumper, tiller, backhoe, stump grinder and a tool carrier that can drive more than 40 quick-change attachments. Both the small and large Zahn dumpers feature durable, all-steel tubs that can handle rock, gravel, concrete and demolition debris.
