PTX44 Ride-On Tractor

Utility Trencher | PTX44
The ride-on, center-articulated PTX44 is designed for installing fiber optic, electrical, gas and irrigation services. It’s a versatile machine that meets the needs of underground utility contractors, municipalities and landscaping professionals.
Powered by a 46.8 hp (34.9 kW) Kubota water-cooled gasoline engine, the PTX44 has 88.7 ft-lb (120.2 Nm) of torque to plow, trench or bore.

Features and Benefits

  • Features a dedicated plow [24” (60.9 cm) maximum installation depth] with the option to utilize a forward-mounted trencher [42” (106.7 cm) maximum trenching depth and 6” (15.2 cm) maximum trenching width] and/or bore attachment.
  • Electronic controls allow the operator to preset the creep speed to optimize performance on longer distance installations, enhancing productivity while helping to reduce operator fatigue.
  • The operator’s station is located at the center of the service plow directly above the machine’s articulation point, providing excellent visibility of the work area.
  • Access to hydraulic and engine oil filters does not require removal of any shielding, making service and preventive maintenance more efficient.
