Features

FUEL UP

The PTX42 has a 12 gal (45.4 L) fuel tank that offers longer operation time between refills to keep your operation moving forward efficiently.

HANDS-ON CONTROL

The PTX42 plow/trencher offers walk-beside hand controls that pivot from side to side of the machine for convenient operation and to maneuver around potential obstacles or congested spaces on a jobsite. The control placement can help minimize operator reach and maintain operator comfort.

ATTACHMENTS FOR THE JOB

The PTX42 has a variety of versatile attachment options, including a backhoe, trencher, plow, porta bore and two reel carriers.  Select the right attachment that best fits the needs of your operation and jobsite.

SET YOUR SPEED

The electronic control allows for convenient setting of the creep speed to help optimize performance on longer distance installations, allowing productivity while helping to reduce operator fatigue, whether trenching or plowing.

STAY ON TRACK

For varying ground conditions, choose from tires or tracks - the PTX42 offers a 23 in (58.4 cm) foam-filled tire option, while the slightly larger 26 in (66 cm) air-filled tires can help with traction. A 23 in (58.4 cm) dual air-filled tire option offers stability and lower ground pressure, and a track option is well-suited for uneven terrain.

CONVENIENT SERVICE

Perform routine maintenance, and service the machine with convenient access to service point without the removal of hood shielding.
