Ditch Witchreleases two new walk-behind trenchers — the RT10 and the RT12. Both trenchers feature fully hydrostatic steering and offer a choice of high-flotation tires or heavy-duty, oscillating tracks. Designed primarily for short runs and operated by easy-to-use controls, Ditch Witch expects the 11-net-hp RT10 to become a popular rental item among homeowners and small contractors. The RT12 features 16 gross hp and an oil cooler that keeps its Vanguard engine running strong even in the hottest conditions.
ICON offers the ICON-O-LITE aluminum box system to contractors as an alternative to heavy steel trench boxes. This lightweight and compact system is designed to be transported in the back of a pick-up truck, and assembled and disassembled on a construction site by two laborers. The panels are available in lengths of 3- to 12-feet long and have a wall thickness of 2.5 inches.
Hydrema’s 912 D-Series compact articulated dump truck features a larger, redesigned cab with computerized displays and very low noise level. It has a low ground pressure of 10.4/17.4 psi loaded, and a two-axle ADT with a payload of 22,000 pounds. The 912D is also available in a MultiTip model, featuring side-dump capability.

Bri-Mar introduces the AG-510 Series off-road dump trailers for applications such as golf courses, farms, recycling centers, cemeteries, parks & recreation areas, campgrounds, and construction and landscaping sites. The new AG-510 Series is available with a 5-foot by 10-foot bed size and a choice of either 5,000-pound GVWR single axle or 10,000-pound GVWR walking beam suspension.
Sakai’s SW320-1 and SW330-1 promote rapid compaction and smoothness on smaller scale jobs like municipal roads, driveways, parking lots, sports courts and bicycle paths. These machines offer a high frequency of 4,000 vpm, drum widths of 47 and 51 inches, respectively, and hydrostatic drive on both ends of the machine. It also provides 360-degree visibility, a view of both drum edges and a new sliding bucket seat system.
