Subject: Surface ditcher--what is a good one?



Have a Amco 18" 1000 pto ditcher. It works good but thinking I want something faster. Is there anything better? What do you all recommend? Thanks.

What HP tractor are you using? How fast can you go? I realize it depends on how deep but... Their website lists the HP as 80-140. Does it handle a larger HP tractor alright? Been using a 4840 Deere. Any idea on pricing? Thanks.

Got it on a 130 horse high crop tractor now. Does just right. Not big enough to tear it up and not too small that it won't do a good job. It's built stout.

I can go up to 10th gear which is around 5-6 mph. Never really thought how fast I could go. I just try to do a good job and go as fast as I can do it. Was around $6k 2 years ago.

Look at the Eagle Ditcher in Milnor ND. Just got one this spring and love it , heaviest and best design out there. Sure the others are good too but we looked at all of them for a year and are very pleased with the Eagle. Call Edwin Erickson @ 701-680-1424. www.eagleditcher.net

What does one of those cost?  I suppose GPS control would be easy enough to do?  Ben

My neighber sells trenching wheels that go on an ATV and they work very well aspicially when the crops are already planted. (320-815-0865), but we also use the Hurricane in the fall to open up ditches. Works well.

Guys I occasionally have a 7' Liebrecht, must be pretty decent since they haven't destroyed it yet. It's laser guided and it sure moves a lot of dirt with a 300+ MFWD on it.

Land pride makes a nice 20 inch ditcher. It is heavy made and around 4500. I have mine on my 8200 and run 3 to 4 mph. Hurricane 26 inch is nice but it is more expensive. I was quoted 6800 last fall.

If you don't have any rocks, I really like the nice wide flat bottom ditches and slopes that can be cut with a Wolverine.
