RT1200 Riding Trencher Delivers Powerful Digging Performance
Toro has launched the RT1200, a new riding trencher designed with versatility and productivity in mind. The unit is now available through Toro’s underground equipment dealer network.
The Toro RT1200 offers a number of features to meet the needs of utility contractors. Built on a tool carrier chassis, its design is extremely versatile to allow contractors to select from tracks or tires and a variety of attachments – including a backhoe, 6-way backfill blade, rocksaw, vibratory plow, reel carrier and the Toro-exclusive Heavy-Duty (HD) trencher drive.
The Toro HD trencher drive consists of three major components: a flywheel, torsion shaft, and planetary gearset. The flywheel stores inertial energy, ensures efficient hydraulic system operation and keeps the chain consistently running in tough digging conditions; the torsion shaft absorbs shock loads; and the planetary gearset multiplies the hydrostatic motor torque for added digging power. Added up, the HD trencher drive technology ensures consistent, powerful trenching performance in the most demanding digging conditions.
