MR90 Mud Recycler

Ditch Witch has introduced an integrated mud recycler that cleans and mixes mud on the same unit for reuse for drilling operations. By reclaiming, recycling and reusing drilling mud, the MR90 enables users to retain resources that would otherwise be thrown away. The self-contained unit also handles the spoils from the reclamation process to further extend cost efficiency. A rear on-board hopper catches all screened spoils, while an integral mixer allows drying additives to be mixed into the spoils, which are discharged through rear hydraulic door. In addition, the recycler can be transported full of fluid - an unusual feature for this type of machine. Ditch Witch has also recently introduced the SK850 footings machine for digging trenches up to 16 inches (41 cm) wide and up to 36 inches (91 cm) deep for slab construction on residential and commercial jobsites. The machine features a specialised heavy-duty chain and Tier 4, 37-hp diesel engine for clean consistent trench creation. The machine is more compact than an excavator, so it can be more productive in tight jobsites, claims the company. A recent success for the company in France has been the sale of 120 units of its ZAHN R300 power unit to a major rental company. Although the unit can take a wide range of tool fittings, the rental company will primarily offer the machine with augur, bucket or trencher tools.
