Product feature: Ditch Witch SK900 tracked loader

The SK900 is a versatile, compact, and manoeuvrable mini skid steer loader designed to perform a wide range of tasks

Rated operating capacity is 422kg

With a powerful engine, agile tracks, and a wide range of attachments, the SK900 can efficiently and effectively tackle tasks ranging from excavation and grading to tree care and removal.

One of the standout features of the SK900 is its compact size. At just 876mm wide, it can easily navigate through narrow gates and doorways, making it ideal for a host of construction and renovation projects.

The engine runs at lower rpms than other brands in its weight class

The machine is also lightweight, which makes it easy to transport between job sites. While small in size, the SK900 is a powerful machine that features a Yanmar 24hp turbo diesel engine and a new hydraulic system and ground drive, ensuring it punches well above its weight.

The SK900 is 1065mm wide with a hinge pin height of 2190mm

Another key feature is its ability to adapt to different tasks and conditions, thanks to its wide range of attachments: buckets, augers, trenchers, and tree care tools, among others.

The machine can quickly and easily swap out attachments, making it a versatile tool that can handle multiple tasks throughout the day. The SK900 is also designed for easy operation and maintenance.

The machine features intuitive controls that are easy to learn and use, even for operators who are new to skid steers. It also has a spacious operator station that provides excellent visibility and a comfortable working environment for operators.

"The SK900 has been so well-thought-out," says CEA NZ general manager, John Grant. "With easily accessible maintenance points, routine maintenance tasks are quick and easy to complete keeping the machine in top condition at all times."

When it comes to performance, the SK900 is a high-performing machine. Its agile tracks help provide excellent traction and manoeuvrability on uneven terrain, while its hydraulic system delivers precise and responsive control.

The machine has a state-of-the-art joystick control system

The machine’s lifting capacity is also impressive, with a maximum rated operating capacity of 408kg. One of the SK900’s most notable features is its advanced control system.

The machine is equipped with Ditch Witch’s Smart Touch™ control system, which allows operators to adjust machine settings, switch between attachments, and monitor performance metrics from a single, user-friendly interface. The system also includes advanced safety features, such as an automatic shut-off system that activates if the operator steps off the machine.
