Features

Machine versatility

Utilized for irrigation and utility installations, the versatile PTX40 is a plow/trencher with a dedicated plow depth of up to 24 in (61 cm), a trench depth of up to 42 in (106.7 cm) and a width of 4–6 in (10.2–15.2 cm). The optional bore attachment has a maximum torque of 620 ft-lb (840.6 Nm).

Remote control

When plowing or in transport mode, remote control operation offers flexibility in congested areas, providing the operator both fingertip control and smooth machine handling. The remote control functionality provides adjustability for the operator to maintain visibility to the work area and machine operation from a variety of viewpoints. When trenching, the operator controls utilize a tether that connects the machine and remote control.

Serviceability

Access to required service points, as well as fuel, hydraulic oil, engine oil and air filters, does not require removal of any shielding which increases efficiency of machine service and simplifies daily maintenance.

Compact footprint

At 40.2 in (102.1 cm) wide and only 55 in (139.7 cm) high, the PTX40 is small enough to navigate smaller jobsites where larger machines can’t fit.
