To help operators ease maneuverability on tight, compact landscape jobsites, Ditch Witch, a Charles Machine Works Company, introduced the SK600 mini skid steer.

Equipped with an efficient 24.8-hp Kubota diesel engine, this machine delivers maximum efficiency to the attachment for enhanced productivity and versatility on landscape and irrigation jobs. Operators can rely on the SK600 for its ability to handle tasks that require heavy duty strength and power with a 600-lb rated operating capacity and a 76-in hinge-pin height.

“Today’s landscape operators face a variety of challenging jobsites not always conducive for the larger machines on the market,” says Chris Thompson, Ditch Witch product manager, compact equipment. “The SK600 is designed specifically for projects that require operators to work in tight environments and hard-to-reach places, without sacrificing durability and the power required for many landscape tasks.”

The SK600 incorporates the Ditch Witch construction-grade design for exceptional durability, longevity and machine return on investment for landscapers and rental companies. With easily accessible maintenance points, operators save time and money keeping the machine running smoothly. Rental companies can also find peace-of-mind with single-point, lockable fuel and hydraulic fluid tanks that improve machine security.

A best-in-class operator platform improves the machine’s platform stability and ground clearance compared to similar models on the market. Operators can effectively maintain hydraulic flow to the attachment with an easy-to-use, auxiliary-control foot pedal. And, optimized machine hydraulics deliver the smoothest ride in the industry, keeping operators more comfortable and productive during long hours on the job.
