A 26-inch ditcher cutting head is the latest addition to the AMCO Rotary Ditcher product line. The robust 26-inch cutting head gives farmers the ability to dig larger drainage ditches for improved water drainage in any crop or soil type.
“The larger cutting head will make digging, maintaining, and cleaning irrigation ditches, laying polypipe, and controlling flood waters and drainage even easier,” said Luke Andries, AMCO marketing manager.
The bigger head creates a wider cut, which places less stress on tractors when running over the ditch. Soil may be spread to an average of 30 yards in dry conditions and 50 yards in wet.
The new cutting head attaches to the same heavy-duty compact ditcher body. The 26-inch cutting head comes with AMCO’s standard buster shank, which increases bearing longevity. The new ditcher models AD30-18 and AD35-18 are only available in 1,000 PTO. “Our customers will find the bigger ditcher head is great addition to our line of AMCO Ditchers,” said Andries.
All AMCO Ditchers come with an adjustable skid, enabling ditch-digging with single or multiple passes. Parking stands, which come standard, hold the AMCO Ditcher in place for ease in disconnecting and connecting to the tractor, and a chain support keeps the PTO shaft properly positioned for easy connection.
The ditchers feature five replaceable cutter head blades made of replaceable, heat-treated, high-carbon special abrasive resistant steel; four triple-lip, sealed ball bearings; and a universal drive shaft that is telescoping and fully shielded. The chain drive is a heavy-duty, endless double #80 roller chain with one-inch pitch. The chain runs continuously in a sealed oil bath, and sprockets are case-hardened on both models. “Our ditchers are the most reliable on the market,” said Andries. “Like everything at AMCO, they are built to withstand the demands of today’s farming environment. With our replaceable heat-treated blades and dual chain drive, you’ll be able to see the difference in ditches made with AMCO Ditchers.”
