Ditchwitch SK755

if any of y'all are in the market better get on it. I had a rumor confirmed today that the turbo diesel has been outlawed by the EPA. My dealer in raliegh has maybe 2 and he says that's it. Rumor is they are going to try and stuff a gas engine in there... but I wouldn't have it.

So if you want one get one

Thanks man! i will be going to get one tomorrow if thats the case. That is a bad bad bad machine.

Zahn is a nice machine but in the mud it doesnt do a darn thing. I need a 755 for ripping in silt fence. The zahn has to have dry dirt and ive rolled it more times then i can count because the trencher is so heavy.

Brandon that Is true I was looking to get one a few weeks ago.. EPA shut the turbos down.. They said you can still get the 750 w.o the turbo.. Cpl days later I found a sk650 and jumped on it!

Im sure i would be just fine for 99% of the time with a non-turbo model anyways. I never run a zahn at full or even half throttle except for when running a trencher.

My new 650 is a beast.. Wish I could have got the high track... But can't be picky... I can't wait to try out the 650.. I have over 20 attachments.. Curious to see how it functions with the heavy duty attachments

With the extra weight of the sk 755 I think the turbo is almost needed if you want the performance of an SK 650. You about have to run half throttle all the time just to do terns and stuff

Good luck finding a 755 by now. My d.w dealer told me a month ago they stopped production on the 755 and there are people waiting on,lists for one that may never get it..
