New Quad is for Installing Utilities in Extreme Jobsite Conditions
The Ditch Witch organization announces the release of the powerful new RT115 Quad that is designed for installing utilities in extreme jobsite conditions. The RT115 Quad features an exclusive chevron track pattern that helps provide very good traction on rugged terrain—in particular mud and other wet conditions.
An operator needing ultimate traction for plowing can rely on the three-speed, shift-on-the-fly ground drive—which senses system load and automatically shifts to the best gear for optimal productivity. The unit is cited to have one of the most heavy-duty steel undercarriages available—manufactured in-house and weighing 1500 lb (680 kg) each. Benefits of the weight and design of these heavy-duty components are increased drawbar and stability on uneven terrain.

Energy Cost Analysis Module
PdMA's MCEGold 2.2 Energy Cost Analysis Module (ECAM) analyzes operating and replacement cost for Design B AC Induction motors. Pressure is on to "go green" and energy efficiency is the ultimate criterion to determine a "green" motor. The ECAM helps resolve the issue through detailed computerized analysis of the motor, the power environment in which it operates and its reliability. ECAM assists in the decision to repair or replace the motor, provides estimated cost savings for replacement with a higher efficiency motor, determines a simple pay-back time and annual savings, and provides a detailed report to support the final decision.
