Designed to cut narrow trenches 0.5 to 2.0 inches wide and up to 16 inches deep, the MT16 decreases the disruption to surrounding infrastructure. An integrated hydraulic accumulator maintains constant pressure on the saw frame for sharper-edged cuts and improved spoils removal. In addition, a variable hydraulic plunge feature eliminates manual adjustment of the microtrencher by providing variable depth control from zero to 16 inches. For a tighter-cut radius, the unit’s frame swings up to six degrees in each direction to efficiently cut on a street corner or around a cul-de-sac.
The MT16 is compatible with a complete lineup of Ditch Witch saw blades, from standard carbide-tipped blades to the Ditch Witch-exclusive Fiberblade, which combines the benefits of both diamond and carbide. The Fiberblade family of blades features a durable, maintenance-free design lasting longer than standard blades. All saw blades for the MT16 are easily changeable on a jobsite with standard hand tools.
