Ditch Witch SK1050 mini skid-steer directs 30 hp to attachments

Ditch Witch introduced the SK1050 mini skid-steer.

Ditch Witch launched the SK1050 mini skid-steer, designed for a variety of landscape, hardscape and irrigation jobs. The unit improves versatility and productivity by directing more hydraulic power to the attachment, the manufacturer said.

Equipped with a 37-hp Tier 4 Yanmar diesel engine, the SK1050 directs 30 hp to the attachment.

“Listening to the customer, incorporating their feedback, and improving productivity and ROI is a critical component of all new product designs,” said Chris Thompson, Ditch Witch product manager, compact equipment. “With the new SK1050, we did just that. With boosted power, added versatility and increased durability, the machine provides operators peace of mind that they can get any landscape, hardscape or irrigation job done effectively and efficiently, while adding to their bottom line.”

With a hinge-pin height of 83 inches, the SK1050 enables efficient and flexible loading and unloading at a wide range of dump sites, Ditch Witch said. The machine’s 1,062-pound rated operating capacity provides operators with exceptional stability in a variety of soils for effective maneuverability while carrying heavy loads. And enhanced lift capacity ensures the machine can withstand maximum weight at maximum height.

The operator’s station includes a spring-supported, 74-inch platform designed to enhanced comfort during long working hours. The auxiliary-control pedal gives operators the power to maintain hydraulic flow to the attachment while freeing their hands to control depth and ground speed. The machine’s LCD display includes programming upgrades to provide visibility into all engine diagnostics and performance for greater machine effectiveness.

The machine’s high-drive track system includes bolt-on, interchangeable rollers, and it also offers easy access to the machine undercarriage and no daily maintenance points or grease zerks to help ease maintenance and reduce total cost of ownership, Ditch Witch said.
