Ditch Witch’s new SK3000 stand-on skid steer delivers a 360-degree view of the jobsite, without compromising power needed for larger jobs.
As the most powerful and largest Ditch Witch stand-on skid steer to date, the SK3000 is built to tackle landscape, hardscape and tree-care projects that are usually reserved for traditional skid steers and compact track loaders.
“The SK3000 has the power, lift capacity and stability to complete the larger jobs that a traditional skid steer can, but it comes with the ability to easily step on and off the operator’s platform and have increased visibility while operating the equipment,” said Chris Thompson, the Ditch Witch product manager for compact equipment.
The SK3000 stand-on skid steer has a lift capacity of 1,406 kg, and the machine can direct up to 51 hp to attachments, so they can be used more efficiently and productively on a wide range of jobs.
As well, the SK3000 delivers 2,495 kg of breakout force to help operators lift and move heavy loads with a bucket. At the same time, the SK3000 only weighs 3,447 kg — considerably less than full-sized skid steers.
In addition, the SK3000 skid steer is designed to make jobs easier for operators. It has an optional dual self-levelling kit that keeps loads level as they are raised or lowered. An open, standing operator station provides full 360-degree visibility. And its large operator platform helps keep operators comfortable on the job.
The SK3000 can also boost job productivity with its advanced hydraulic system, according to Ditch Witch. It comes with a 30, 53 and 83 litre-per-minute flow setting. This allows operators to select the right flow for each job, improving productivity.
Hydraulic-operated attachment pins also simplify the process when swapping attachments, and operators don’t need to get off the machine to swap non-powered attachments.
