Ditch Witch RT80 ride-on trencher
The RT80 from Ditch Witch is a new and improved ride-on trencher, a mid-range machine equipped for trenching in small places. It is powered by a 74.5 hp turbocharged Deutz Tier 4 diesel engine. A compact design and axle capacity give the machine a static load rating of 39,000 pounds. The machine has a tight turn radius and is equipped with three-speed, shift-on-the-fly ground drive controls for improved versatility, along with a standard cruise control system that senses changing load conditions and automatically adjusts. An LCD color display shows engine information and diagnostics. 800/654-6481;

Cleral onboard weighing system
The SIM system from Cleral USA is an onboard weighing system and embedded computerized load equalizer for tandem and tridem suspensions. It assesses the weight of each axle and divides it equally between them by controlling air pressure of the pneumatic auxiliary axle. The auxiliary lift axle is fully managed by the SIM control, which will raise or lower the pressure of the axle in accordance with the legal load limits. It can be used on both straight-body units and tractor/trailer pairings with either the Reflex (outside mount) or Kiload K2 (cab mounted). 866/901-7372;

Trimble pipe lasers
The Spectra Precision DG613 and DG813 pipe lasers from Trimble are smaller in length than their predecessors, which is ideal when setting up the units in manholes with precast inverts and a tight radius. Both models have a grade range from -12 to +40 percent and are fully self-leveling over the entire grade range. The cross axis is fully compensated for quick setup and ensures the laser will be level. The RC803 remote control provides full function control and utilizes infra-red communications when in the pipe at a distance of up to 500 feet. Flexible power options provide up to 40 hours of operation with NiMH rechargeable batteries and 50 hours with alkaline batteries; alkaline batteries can be used directly in the laser without a separate battery pack. 800/527-3771;

TT Technologies pipe bursting system
Grundoburst is a static pipe bursting system from TT Technologies for the replacement of water, sewer or gas lines. It can pull in a variety of replacement pipe, including PVC, DIP, ABS, cast iron, fusion-welded HDPE, and VCP jacking pipe. The system utilizes a specially designed bladed cutter head to make bursting ductile iron and steel pipe possible. QuickLock bursting rods are linked together as opposed to threaded to prevent twisting. Models are available for bursting 2-inch to 54-inch pipes and larger. 800/533-2078;
