The Ditch Witch MT12 microtrencher offers utility contractors a cost-effective solution for installing fiber-optic cable along paved rights-of-way, helping utility contractors reduce jobsite cost-per-foot when compared to traditional installation methods. With its unique saw blades, the MT12 cleanly slices through asphalt or concrete to create the ideal trench in one quick, efficient pass. And, its rugged design helps operators maintain consistent trenches and enables easy and effective cuts around street corners. The MT12 is part of a complete microtrenching system, which includes choice of RT45, RT55 or RT80 ride-on trenchers and an HX75 vacuum excavator to handle dry, dusty spoils. All components of the system are designed and manufactured by the Ditch Witch organization to work together with unbeatable efficiency.
The MT12 creates an ideal trench for fiber-optic cable installation – from 0.5 to 1.5 in (12.7 to 38.1 mm) wide, and up to 12 in (304.8 mm) deep.
The narrow, small trench enables contractors to install fiber shallower than other utilities with minimal disruption to the surrounding infrastructure, improving safety and saving time and money.
Designed specifically for faster fiber installation, the MT12 helps contractors reduce cost-per-foot beyond traditional installation methods.
To meet each individual’s jobsite needs, the unit can be equipped with the choice of a proven, standard-speed motor for general asphalt conditions, or a high-speed motor for concrete applications.
