New Ditch Witch Low-Profile Sprocket™ To Debut At The Rental Show

PERRY, Okla. — The Ditch Witch organization will introduce the new Low-Profile Sprocket™ for compact trencher booms at The Rental Show in Orlando, Fla., February 10-12, 2014, at the Orange County Convention Center. The new sprocket is designed with low-profile teeth on the tail roller, which helps reduce seize-up and flat-spotting during trencher operation. Engineered with lower-profile teeth than traditional sprockets, this innovative new sprocket is designed to reduce chain wear and minimize binding caused by rocks and other debris.

The Low-Profile Sprocket is available in either greasable or sealed models and is available on compact equipment booms designed to trench depths of 18 to 48 inches.

The Ditch Witch organization has been an innovator in trencher technology since 1949, when the company introduced the world’s first commercial compact trencher for installing utilities. Ditch Witch trenchers are recognized worldwide for their durability and simplicity of operation, making them an ideal choice for rental companies and small contractors.

The Low-Profile Sprocket is compatible with the following trencher booms in greasable and/or sealed designs:

  • Standard boom, which is designed with abrasion-resistant bars on the top and bottom, and manual chain tension provisions.
  • Greasable boom, a rugged, proven boom similar to the standard boom but features a grease cylinder to tension the digging chain.
  • Split boom, an economical boom designed for operating in light to medium jobsite conditions. The design of this boom allows for quick and easy installation and removal.
