The SK1550 mini skid-steer loader from Ditch Witch is powered by a 44 hp Tier 4 Yamaha turbocharged diesel engine and directs 34.5 hp to the attachment, allowing the machine to complete tasks typically suited for traditional loaders, including tree handling and sod transfer. It offers a 1,558-pound-rated operating capacity to lift heavier loads and is equipped with a 94-inch hinge-pin height, providing flexibility for loading and unloading material on a wide range of dump sites. The 4.7 mph ground drive speed, in forward and reverse, increases job cycle times. Optional dual-auxiliary connections can utilize attachments for better productivity for heavier loads, such as logs, trees and sod. 800/654-6481;
