  • Equipped with a 37-hp Tier 4 Yanmar® diesel engine, the SK1050 directs 30 hp to the attachment, giving operators the power to tackle an assortment of challenging tasks.
  • The SK1050’s attachment horsepower, combined with 13.9 gpm auxiliary flow and 3,625 psi (250 bar), results in quicker jobsite cycle times, making your crews more efficient.
  • Standard auto-throttle reduces engine throttle when stepping off the platform for greater fuel efficiency.
  • The machine is capable of 4.7-mph (7.6-km/h) ground drive speed both forward and in reverse, improving jobsite cycle times and decreasing overall labor costs.
  • Best-in-class, 83-inch (2.1-m) hinge-pin height enables more flexible and efficient loading and unloading at a wide range of dump heights and improved operating capacity ensures the machine can withstand maximum weight at maximum height.
  • 1,062-lb (482-kg) rated operating capacity with exceptional stability allows operators to effectively maneuver jobsites while carrying heavier loads.
  • At 3,625 psi (250 bar), the SK1050 provides more hydraulic pressure to the attachment than comparable industry models, also leading to increased cycle times—saving time and money.
  • When enabled, standard auto-throttle reduces engine RPM after periods of sustained inactivity for better fuel economy.
  • Built for heavy-duty operation, the robust design of the lift arms, rollers and undercarriage, improves overall machine longevity and ROI.
  • A high-drive track system includes bolt-on, interchangeable rollers—a Ditch Witch exclusive—for longer lasting performance.
  • Easy access to the machine undercarriage helps keep the machine in proper worker order.
  • With no daily maintenance points and no grease zerks, ease of maintenance is improved and total cost of ownership (TCO) reduced.
  • Low-maintenance gauge track-tensioning system features a grease cylinder for easy adjustment and track removal, improving track life and reducing downtime.
  • A standard hydraulic brake improves operator engagement and disengagement.
  • Designed specifically with the hardworking operator in mind, the SK1050 is equipped with a best-in-class, 74-in2 (188-cm2) operator platform for outstanding comfort and productivity during long hours on the job.
  • A spring-supported platform is integrated directly into the machine for enhanced durability and comfortability on the job.
  • Ergonomic operator's station comes standard with dual-lever ground drive controls and an optional joystick, allowing the operator to control each track independently for improved maintenance and mobility on difficult jobsite conditions.
  • Incorporating customer feedback, the machine features a repositioned muffler now on the side, allowing exhaust to escape without affecting operator comfort.
  • An LCD display with programming improvements provides direct visibility into engine diagnostics.
  • An easy-to-use auxiliary-control foot pedal allows operators to maintain hydraulic flow to the attachment while freeing their hands to control depth and ground speed.
  • The SK1050 accepts many attachments to suit a variety of hardscape, landscape, utility, plumbing and irrigation jobs, making it one of the most versatile machines on the market.
  • Industry-leading power to the attachment provides unbeatable productivity, especially when operating hydraulic attachments, and increases jobsite cycle times.
  • Advanced attachment-latching system for simple, secure connection of the attachments.
