Aries Industries new dual reel
Moving from a stacked to a combined configuration, Aries Industries’ new dual reel occupies a slim footprint within the company’s inspection vehicles. Slip rings are now inside the shaft, eliminating the need for slip ring boxes. The dual reel provides quick, easy setup and operation with single-button downrigger deployment, so there are no pins and knobs to adjust. Reel controls have been consolidated to a single accessible panel. The spring-loaded, retractable downrigger rollers allow easy cable removal. Field operation has been improved with enhanced level-wind timing for even level winding of the cable, and precise adjustable drum tension control with caliper and floating rotors on each drum. 800-234-7205;

Ditch Witch RT70 ride-on trencher
Ditch Witch’s newly designed RT70 ride-on trencher is equipped with features that increase operator comfort and visibility, helping to boost efficiency and profitability on the job site. The ergonomically designed operator station features an open layout with a 120-degree swivel seat, more legroom and intuitive controls. The RT70 also includes a cooling fan to reduce temperature levels in the operator station by moving hot, uncomfortable exhaust out of the side of the machine rather than toward the operator like traditional fans. Powered by a 72 hp Yanmar Tier 4 Stage V Compliant diesel engine, and built with a narrow footprint of 73 inches wide, the rubber-tire trencher can handle heavy-duty jobs and still easily maneuver around tight job sites, corners and cul-de-sacs with ease. 580-336-4402;
