April 5, 2017 -  By

ditchwitch-skid-steerDitch Witch introduced the SK1550, the company’s largest mini skid-steer model to date.

The SK1550 is powered by a 44-hp, Tier-4 Yanmar diesel engine and directs 34.5 hp  to the attachment.

“We continually listen to our customers and seek to expand our product lines to fill specific industry gaps and meet unique market needs, and the SK1550 does exactly that,” said Chris Thompson, Ditch Witch product manager, compact equipment. “As the largest and most powerful mini skid-steer in our lineup to date, the SK1550 helps operators tackle heavy-duty landscaping jobs efficiently with a smaller job site footprint than a traditional skid-steer loader.”

Equipped with a 94-inch hinge-pin height, the SK1550 also provides operators flexibility for loading and unloading material on a wide range of dump sites, the company said.

The SK1550 offers a 1,558-pound rated operating capacity and  is equipped with a 4.7-mph ground drive speed, in forward and reverse.

The model’s 74-square-inch ergonomic operator platform comes standard with dual-lever ground drive controls, allowing the operator to independently control each track. An optional, single joystick control is also available.
