Key Features
  • Variable blade pitch allows operator to change the angle of the leading edge of the blade to be more or less aggressive, to match soil conditions.
  • Accepts standard Ditch Witch vibratory plow blades, eliminating the need to purchase new blades.
  • Optional sod cutter and skid shoes provide greater versatility and minimize restoration.
  • Optional reel carrier provides efficient installation of cable.
  • Ergonomically designed operator’s station features soft-touch, color-coded controls that are easy to grip, easy to learn and provide smooth, easy operation.
  • Power unit’s exclusive traction-assist feature provides extra drawbar on demand, enabling the operator to push more, pull more, and traverse soft ground with minimal tire slippage.
  • 11-gallon (41.6 L) fuel tank enables the operator to work all day without having to refuel; the tank’s molded-in sight glass allows the operator to keep an eye on fuel consumption.
  • Standard cruise control, which locks in operating speeds, reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity.
  • Convenient cargo tray is large enough to store a water bottle, work gloves, cell phone or assorted tools.
