With a maximum chain speed of 460 fpm and an operating weight of 5,375 pounds, the RT45 can handle even the most challenging trenching jobs. It also features a user-friendly operator’s station with color-coded controls and a backfill blade controlled by a sensitive joystick. The exhaust system is mounted under a composite hood with a horizontal exhaust pipe, which helps to keep noise levels down. For greater safety, the operator presence system stops the engine when the operator leaves the seat. Depth capacity is 5 feet. Attachments that can be used include trencher
