With the new Ditch Witch JT60 Directional Drill, you'll recognise many of the features you've grown to appreciate : the proven, intuitive electronics and the rugged, reliable undercarriage, to name two. In no time at all you'll appreciate the JT60's more powerful rotational torque, an 80% increase over its predecessor the JT40/20 and almost 27 Tonnes of Thrust and Pullback (50% increase). Its the powerful combination you needed, the combination you asked for, to work more efficiently with less downtime.
